Should the rollbar rear down tube bolt holes be in line with the spot welds?
Just wanted to check before drilling.

Yes. I just did this install last summer. The bolt holes should be just outside the spot welds or inline with them. You just want the down bar bolts to avoid contact with the more-vertical walls of the frame rail underneath the car.

Take extra caution to avoiding drilling the brake lines. Use drill stops and cobalt drill bits to make things go smoother. Ask me how I know 🤦‍♂️
