Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Toyota Corolla

Today on this 2008 Toyota Corolla S we are going to install part number 11266 from Curt. This hitch is going to be relatively easy to install. There are four holes that are threaded in the frame. These two are on the passenger side of the vehicle. Over here on the driver's side it is going to be an identical set up. :20
