    I think this is installed a little wrong

    Nels

    Need a little help here...I had my friend install your rear brace yesterday and there was a slight miss understandin of words and this happened, please see pic for explaination...

    Do we need to turn it to the horizontal position or will this be fine...The guy felt really bad cause the holes were cut and if i need to change its oreintation i would have to find a way to cover the holes and make it look Stock

    Lookin forward to your reply

    That should work. Doesn't have to be facing up.

    it probably has less flex this way but just looks little different.

    Ok, i sleep a little better at night, but i dont think there is any change in ridgedness. If its gonna flex its gonna flex in the same way, but in a different direction...

    I agree. I think that way could be more rigid and wouldn't hurt. Anything back there will help.
