keep in mind the fit for a svt with a cai and a zx3 with a cai are totally different. trust me when i say u need to jack it up unless u r perfectly flat. i tried it everyway possible and the way i explained is abotu the onyl way to do it

Maybe that s where I went wrong?! I only did one side at a time.

SVT RACER I just tried putting my strut bar on and did not have very good luck, I thought it matched up perfectly before but when I went to throw it on there it doesnt want to go. It seems as if the bottome screw hole on the driver side is not aligning properly. I even tried jacking it up from either side. Is it necessary to take the AEM off? It didnt seem like that was going to get in the way unless you had to bring the bar in from a lower angle. So you are suggesting putting the driver side on first with the tb slid out of the way correct?
