Re: Need top hats for the JDM front upper strut bar

may be a dumb question, but do they just both right in? or do you have to modify anything to use them?

the holes for the new top hats are there. the top hats have two extra studs that the bar bolts to. pretty damn simple.

Re: Need top hats for the JDM front upper strut bar

I think the special top hat with the studs was just made to make installation easer on the assembly line. When I purchased my Type S Strut bar long ago ,I was not even a where of the fact that the Type S used a different top hat. After receiving the new bar, I removed the tape off of the pre drilled holes on the strut tower and found they were half covered up by my top hat . I merely took a drill and slotted the holes into a oval shape a fraction of an inch to the point that I had a clear set of holes. I then installed some harden steel bolts trough the holes ,installed the strut bar, and bolted it down. The bar is solidly connected to the strut tower and I have had no problems in the 5+ years since installing it.Keep in mind that unlike on the McPherson set up ,the strut towers are not as tall and are not having to do part of the job of holding up the car so the stresses placed on them are not as great on the Double wishbone set up car.



An example of a strut tower brace for a Mustang mounted on the corners of the strut tower.

It's ICBMOTORSPORT.COM | JDMLAND.COM - THE PURSUIT OF TRUE JDM! I'm pretty sure they are 150, you are going to have to take your struts out and swap the top hats.
