ralley armor mud flaps???

Just bought some universal ralley armor mud flaps was wondering any special trick to putting them on ? I have a 2009 ses sedan. It seems easy. Ive seen on the internet where some people make bracket's and some just bolt on. Just thought some one might have something special up there sleeve. How many inces off the ground would you guy's suggest ????????????

thanks much
JT

depends on how that kit is made and what's behind where you are attaching them as to the best way to mount them. could prolly bolt them to the bumper cover on the back, not sure off hand on the front without looking. as far as clearance look at the type of driving you do and the road conditions. if you aren't going over big speed bumps or anything like that then you could prolly mount them a bit lower, but if there is an issue of clearance and hitting them then mount a bit higher. don't want to catch them on anything or it could damage the body where it is mounted.

i have these. i had a little troubble getting them to fit. best thing you can do is take the wheels off since your going to have to drill holes, lower the car back down to the stock ride hight. put them up their and try and find a good place to get them all fitted up right. i think i used a cig pack to make sure both side were even.

Ralley Armor universal mud flaps/help

Question; Orderd Ralley Armor Universal mud flaps for my 2010 ses sedan, was wondering if any of you guy's have tried to put them on? Have seen the vidio using the pre existing kit for other makes, thought the spacer was interesting. Have also seen the photo where he made a frame frome sheet metal. Nothing to connect to in the rear!!!!!! Ouch !! Any suggestions would help.

Thanks much
JT

the rear is easy, just screw it into the bumpe cover, drill pilot holes first.

for the front i used just 2 bolts through the fender liner. just pop out the edge of the fender liner so u can reach behind to get the nut on. drill holes for that too.

this way i avoided drilling into anything metal.

Originally i had the flaps way to low, and on gravel roads, i found they were flipping the rock up when they dragged, not blocking them, so i trimmed.

ralley armor universal mud flaps/HELP !

Hey , putting ralley armor universal mud flaps on my 2010 ses sedan, saw no mounting in back except the cover, have had a few people tell me just bolt to the cover. Have seen on the internet where they designed a frame from sheet metal, this was another make of car. If i can get away with bolting into cover ill just do that. ANY SUGGESTIONS ??????????? The front seems to have places where i can bolt.

You can post here in the Duratec Owners Lounge and see if others with the same ride can help you out.

Welcome to the forum BTW.

Rally Armor mud flaps help!

Hey
Just got a set of Universal Ralley Armor mud flaps for my 2010 ses sedan, and wondering what is the best way to install, have had some tell me just to bolt into the fender liner, also have seen on the internet where they made a frame out of sheet metal this was for another make of car. Suggestions ???????????? Still trying to decide. It just seems that the fender liner would not be strong enough.

thanks much
