My 98 gs4 does not have the holes in the brackets.. I just zipped mine to that little latch right above it, steering feels firmer didn't take it on the highway yet....

Just did this on my 01 LS 430. It's tightening things up a bit. There is still some free play in the steering wheel, but not like before. Likely multiple things going on for me. But this seems to have gotten rid of the freeway speed vibes and noise I was getting. It was mild, but annoying for me. Especially since I'm on the freeway just about every day of the week.

Cheap and easy fix.
