strut bar install

hello all. i got a couple of questions here. first of all do i really need a torque wrench to install the strut bar or can i just use a normal wrench? 2nd, can i laeve the car on the floor when removing the bolts? 3rd, is there a certain order for screwing and unscrewing the bolts?

i didnt use a torque wrench, I left it on the ground, and I didnt tighten them in any certain order. Just have some one push down on the actual bar when tightening the two side bolts/nuts.

Do you want me to pull of my tower bar, and post a step-by-step tutorial for you? It'd only take 30 mins, and I have the day off, soooooooooo! Lemme know, bro.

Actually, to make it easier/quicker.. Here's RacingLine's tower bar install instructions: http://racinglineperformance.com/sho...20_Install.pdf

Your strut bar didn't come with instructions? Mine did. I didn't use a torque wrench, but just use common sense. Don't overtighten, just a good snug for me.
