Before you go to bigger sways, look at solid end links for you sway bars. Even though you have upgraded with poly the solid (heim joint) endlinks can make the bars feel stiffer. I have heard as much as 5%. This also allows you to dial out any imperfections in the bars, side to side.

Just a thought.

Already looked into those, but I'm also running 245 tires fr and rr and with everything else i've got done, you can feel the oem sways quickly becoming overworked. I appreciate the input and suggestions though!!

Thread dropped to archive, I thought I would bump it back to recent. How are things going Jonnie, making any headway on new parts for the S14?

Sorry have not made too much headway on new S14 parts...been spending a little time trying to get my S13 going. I do have a new product that I am @ the drawing board stage as of now, but this is why I am getting my car going so I can do more research.

Thanks for the bump up.Jonnie

Unfortunately no it does not work with the Nismo powerbrace. They are one in the same. Mine is just a bolt in version that uses the stock brackets for ease of install and lower cost on shipping.

Thanks for the interestJonnie

ahh okay. Too bad because I have heard a lot of people doing something similar to this with the power brace. Unfortunately my stock braces are garage now as the previous owner decided to drill some extra holes in the brace and moving the mount point for the tension arms? Anyway I need to just get a whole new brace...so i got a good deal on a used power brace.

If you decide to make one for the power brace in the future let me know :D

looks like a solid product! gl

Hey Jonnie, we've seen how much your brace helps on the street, this weekend I will be seeing how everything feels when the car gets a little dirty. Its time to go RallyCrossing, 240SX style.

Check your spam filter Dave. The first time I tried emailing Jonnie, my email kept dumping his messages to the spam folder. Not to mention he is a busy guy. Good luck getting a brace for your car, they make a hell of a difference.

Spam Filters a negative. I check through all my ads for pen15 enlargement, replica watches, and unsolicited stock tips for real messages and nothing from Jonnie has come through.I'm sure he is a busy guy, so Jonnie, if you will let me know what my total cost would be, I can paypal money to you on Monday.
