yeah dont do like me when I put the strut bar on my Rio. I snapped a stud on the top of the strut tower. Luckly I was able to get it fixed and it didnt cost me alot. I just made sure they were all snug when I installed my strut bars in both of my rides. Im sure if you were to go to kiatechinfo.com you will find what toruque they need to be at.

I just checked out kiatechinfo.com and it looks like the torque on them needs to be between 33.2 - 44.3

right, i was just checking to see if you just tighten down the brackets, and then tighten the bar down so every thing is snug,
