re Re: Jamex upper stress bar

 "sammy hung" <roundlite72@hotmail.com> asked:


Did you drill holes for the bar or weld??  I went to a mechanic yesterday 
and he wanted around $200 to install.  I think that is ridiculous, any 
I installed one of these into my 90q.  To do the job without welding
requires some time to decide on the exact alignment, undo the strut caps,
lift the car one side at a time, drill the holes, (and you may ruin a few
bits), paint the holes (preferably with zinc epoxy paint), let the paint
dry, mount the bar, (oops, there is a stud in the way, gotta grind it down
and reposition a battery cable), adjust the bar (a coupla hours at this
point), and now figure out a new mounting scheme for the cruse control
vacuum pump.  (Hint: the base can be redrilled so the pump mounts on it in
another orientation and it mounts on the car differently.  I'll have to
relook at mine to see exactly what I did if anyone cares.)  I guess the
question has to be, what are you getting for $200?
