Strut tower brace install question

I was thinking of buying a strut tower brace but people are saying the holes are pre-drilled but mine isnt. Do i have to drill the holes or what. ????

Yes you do. It's pretty easy install for a 2 point brace. 3 point takes a little more work but still not too bad.

Are the bolts self tapping. It looks like i would have to pull the inner fenders out to get to the underside of them.

No, they are just standard bolts. You can tap the holes however and that is mentioned in the directions. I never removed the inner fender to get to mine. You just have to reach up in there a good bit.

94/95 I think and perhaps 96 are predrilled but yours are not, its not a big deal to drill them.
