Hmmm 🤔🤔 could put some fiberglass tape on the brace right under the line to prevent damage from chafing. Thanks, I'll get under the car tomorrow and see if I order the traction bar this week.

i installed about 2 weeks ago... big difference in handling at least i like to think so... the install wasn't really that bad. It looks worse than what it is.

Also if I might add regarding your modification to the cowl. I hope you didn't drill through the lower cowl. That lower cowl underneath the top cowl with the alignment mark is what seals the air Inlet for the air-conditioning. It seals the lower cowl with the upper cowl which has those two square inlets. Carbon monoxide is deadly.

I spent more time aligning those wipers than I did on the install.... That's until I read the manual and found out there was a service position -.-

You HAVE to remove the cowl to get access to the aft strut mount bolt and properly torque it which means the Wiper arms also come off.
