Does anyone know if the front tow hook bolts help support the frame at all?

Thanks a lot,

Kevin

I have removed both front tow hooks, 2 or 3 bolts each- doesn't seem to have anything to do with support.
BTW I have a 91.

I think they are spot welded to the chassis aren't they?
I figured it out, they rnt welded but there is a 4th bolt on the bottom of the radiator support.

Thanks for the help,

kevin

I wouldnt take them off. Its not really worth the extra pound or so that they save you. On a b13 the tow hooks are about the only plase for a truck to hook up if you even do need a tow.

On the NX, only two are accessible. If you tried towing with one of the other two you would damage the bumper. I've only got 2 tow hooks left :D
