this guy told me that in order to further stiffen my suspension, I should jack up my car when putting in the strut bars. my question is, where am I supposed to jack it up by? the middle? or by the sides? Im guessing its the middle because it wouldnt help much lifting by the sides

most of the strut bars that I have seen are mounted with the shock mounting nuts. So if you jack the car up, and remove the nuts to install the bar, the shock assembly could fall out of place.

However if you are only talking about jacking the car up a little to prevent any preload on the bar (keeping the wheels on the ground and a load on the suspension), you would need to jack it up just a lil bit in the middle. However I really don't think that this is an issue for a car sitting on level ground.
