I thought I would post a few pics showing the spreader bar in action. I wounds up soaking the feet in acetone for a day to remove the adhesive of the rubber pads. I did this because the original adhesive was slipping when I tested the bar the first time. I re-attached the pads using the jell style super glue, and as you will see, it worked perfectly. The paint wasn't as hard as I would have liked, and the pads still didn't leave a permanent mark. Note that I put the pads just underneath the support mounts on the shock tower to prevent the spreader from slipping "up". The spreader did climb a bit, but not enough to damage the support mount. Anyway, take a look:

Neat Tool! I have to have one of those. I can think of a few other places it would come in handy.
What did you use for those swivel feet?

Shannon,

Make sure to get your front end aligned prior to driving your car for any distance. You probably have changes the camber and toe of the front end.

Based on the amount of creaking the car made during the spreading, I would say its a certainty! Thanks for the advice.

Like the rest of the parts, the swiveling levelers are standard issue from a Mcmaster-Carr.
