    Hello everyone.

    I would like to post this DIY to help everyone with these trunk torsion bars, there ain't much about it out there, so here a small write up.

    I have mine into place already but anyways this will help understand the proper position.

    Also you will not need any "special tool" fot this, only a locking plier, and a bud to help you with the trunk.

    First of all let's understand the position of the bars:

    Now let's follow the steps to get these in... ALWAYS START FROM THE PASSENGER SIDE (small hook hook used as reference).
