Racing Dynamics Rear Strut Brace

I just purchased a Rear Strut Brace, but it arrived with no instructions. So am I to assume that there is some carpet cutting involved in this installation and does this bar cut accross my rear trunk space? From what I can see. it doesn't go under the vehicle....

Any one familiar with this installation?

Thanks

There isn't much to a rear strut brace install. Yeah you'll have to cut your trunk liners to allow the strut bar to go through while keeping your trunk liners. And yes it will cut across your rear trunk space. I've never seen the RD rear strut brace... is the cross-member removable at will?
