    Pretty sure you just jack the car up and bolt it on to the 2 bolts where the wishbones attach too

    Edit (Taken form ZLET site):

    The brace fits across the rear suspension pick up points but may just catch on the subframe (It did on a GSi).

    Pictures of it fitted:



    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Surely you would have got instructions with it ??

    Oh, and if you dont know your r's from your elbow, then I would not suggest trying to fit it yourself.

    Get a mate whos handy with spanners, or get a garage to do it.
    Should not take more than 1 hour.
