"trunk lower" is useless, get a tow hitch, same thing with a purpose.

"rear lower" comes on 92+

"front lower" is bolted next to the stocker

all mounted in locations that wouldnt help over stock braces....all have flimsy brackets that will flex anyways....there are better ones out there.

Rofl..

Ilovetacotaco!

If I remember correctly, I saw that same car in another photo and it has no boost pipes installed. The intercooler is mounted in the bumper and nothing is hooked up.

You can see the cat-forward is missing in this photo:
