Determines what kind of car you have.... e36 wise... if you have a e36 M3 then there is no need to drill... but even if you drill you wont be drilling all that much and its probably only a 7-8mm hole in the front sub frame...
you need to drill anywhere that you need to put a nutsert, basically you should mock it up and then decide the exact points you need to drill the holes, the rear bolts are already there so no need to drill, just remove your stock tiebar the front is a bit differnt your gonna need to drill.....here is a pick of mine but i did mine different where i welded in bolts at the exact points where the xbrace would be fastened so i basically made my xbrace removeable for whatever work i might have to do in the future.
yeah i did, i put the stock bar behind it for the extra bit, but you really dont have to, i just thougth ..what the hell.i painted the xbrace silver for two reasons one it helped with the rust and also just for the hell of it.
I notice you have upgraded suspension, how many hours of labour it that. This one shop wants to charge me $350 to put rear and front shocks and springs. Plus he recommends re-alligning the car frame or something like that.
yes you should do a re-alignment pretty much anytime you change your suspension setup most places will even tell you to do it after you change rims (for those who have two sets for seasonal purposes). aligments are very important
