My front suspension creaks after I installed my Tanabe strut bar. I torqued down the bolts as tight as I could and that seemed to fix it for a day or so, but then it started again. How can I keep those bolts torqued down properly? Anyone else experience this? :confused:

Well screw it, I took the strut bar out and put the stock hardware back on. The hardware supplied with the Tanabe strut bar is made from REALLY soft metal. The stock bolts are MUCH stronger. Much of the creaking has gone away, but I can't quite get the bolts tight enough, I'm going to find someone with a torque wrench to tighten them down for me.
