Are you planning on doing any other types of braces for the S13? I got one of your S13 braces via another member on this site who parted out his car and must admit they are a great addition to my car. Would love to see some new innovative parts from you in the future. Definitely got me down as a future buyer.

if im not mistaken tanabe makes a rear brace for the 240sx, I know its not a big improvement to handling for the car, but would be nice if you did made one to compliment the front.

I love that brace! I have no Idea how they do it for under $400.00 though. I do have a rear strut tower bar that has just been released. These will sell for $70.00-$75.00 I am thinking.Let me know what you guys think.Jonnie

I like that it's not a threaded/adjustable. Much more strength in your design.

Seems like fair price. Is it painted or powdercoated? You might look into either purchasing, or working out something locally for powdercoating. Personally I would be more apt to pay more for a powdercoated piece.

Most of Jon's parts are painted, simply because the cost of the powder coating in this area is a bit expensive. Even if you have multiple parts to coat they still dont cut you a really good deal, which would make the cost of the part go up considerably. However I think Jon will still powder coat individual parts that you order if you pay for the extra for it.

Holy sh*t That thing looks massive! I'm actually rockin a custom fabricated rear strut bar right now, but it's weaksauce, easily bendable. If that'll fit my s13 hatch, I'll be glad to be the first to try it. Please send final price w/ shipping to Anaheim 92801. [email protected]

Your tension arm brace made a dynamic change to my cars turning. Very little body roll now. Thx.

I've been following this thread since the beginning and I am very excited about the S-14 brace. Do you have to remove subframe to install? I love my 240 but its a bit of a flexy flyer. Oh, and the price will be right I'm sure. Keep me informed @ johnnybla[email protected]

On the S14 brace you do not have to remove the subframe to install. I do recomend that you remove the tension arm brackets to do it. It is possable to do it with them in the car, but an incredible PITA to do it. Price on the S14 unit will be around $100.00 plus shipping. I am contacting some of the members who were key in pushing me to get these done. Ian check your e-mail. The rear strut bar is for an S13. I am in early production process for these.

Thanks for the interestJonnie

I'm just waiting on some warmer (and dry) weather on one of my days off to install. Hopefully won't be long at all as the excitment is building. I even have it in the middle of my floor to step over each day to make it worse that it's not on yet!

The only stupid question is the one not asked. The answer is no it will not interfere, because if I am right I see the bolts to one of my braces in the pics. Thanks I kinda like the strut tower bar also...I need to get in touch with Greg to see what I have to do to start selling these.
