    im not sure what your talking about screws falling off?? when putting on the tower bars front or rear you dont have to jack up the car. take the three bolts off put the bracket over the studs and put the bolts back on .DONE . well dont forget to adjust strut bar tight as you can get it then tighten the lock nuts

    How would the bolts fall off?? Strut tower bars bolt to the top of the struts, so if your car isn't jacked up, then there's practically no way that those bolts are going to drop down.

    You should be using a torque wrench to tighten the nuts down though, there's a specific torque that they're supposed to be tightened down to.
