I put the 95-99 Maxima strut bar in my 98 GLE, and it's rattling like hell. It's touching the top of the engine. I think I am gonna use some washers and material to fix it up, but has anyone else had this problem?
Well everybody told me that the 95-99 Maxima bar should fit, and there are no problems with lining up the bolts or anything. I am gonna play with it a little and see what happens. Regardless of the noise, it does handle substantially tighter, and I got it cheap. I just wondered if anyone had similar noise problems.
I bought the 95-99 Maxima FSTB from ebay, and I tried to put it on my 99 SE... The holes for the bolts fit perfectly, but i couldn't get it on, cause crap from the engine was in the way. If i got one side bolted down, I couldn't even get the other side to touch down completely, since there was crap in the way, anyone have any clues?
Should I use washers/etc to raise it up, or.......?
Update: I checked my Haynes manual, and it's my EGR valve which is getting in the way.
Also, the strut bar doesn't go on the way i'd think. The 'C' braces where you bolt it to the strut bolts only fit one way. The way they fit, make the strut bar be in the 'front' vs every other picture of a strut bar, where they are in the 'back'. (I hope that makes sense)
