should be fairly obvious from the strut brace itself mate if youve got the right one for the car-they fit on the bolts from the suspension strut (outer part) ignore the plastic cap in the middle youre on about (nut under there to undo if changing springs/shocks once unit is off car)

just took a pic of mine tho theres only 3 bolts in the suspension tops from the strut itself on mine,most strut braces fit on all 3 however mine doesnt(money were tight at the time so put a cheap omp one on)this just fits on 2.

Not sure mate. Just keep an eye on your tyre wear. If they do start wearing funny then just get an alignment done :wink:

Hi eric, providing the strut brace went on over the studs easily and you didnt have to wizz the adjusting stud about when you nipped up everything then all should be well, if you did give the thing some stick and moved the strut tops then you will have upset the alignment as lou said, and may need to have the goemetory set up.
Just keep an eye on your tyre wear.
