Unless you have a very low profile drill, I bet that was a PITA. The towers are real close to the firewall. I had my struts out when I did it and drilled from the inside.

It's much easier with the struts out. We did a how-to wright up on our Facebook page Give it a look, and if you have any questions let me know.

Best regards,
