I think you'll be happy with it. I think I need to get some nice front tension rods to complement it.

Got it! Just installed it at the auto hobby shop on base, man do I love those 4 point lifts! makes working underneath your car so much easier! And those impact guns, man they're great to work with, took off those bolts in a second. Anyways, back on the subject. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was gonna be to install on the S14. The only annoyance of the install is that the bolts that came with it were a little bigger than my biggest drill bit, just gotta make sure you drill your hole centered. The install was also complemented by a TEIN strut bar, which had an L on both of the bases where it bolts on to the car (it fits but it also interferes when the hood is closing) gonna call em about that. Oh and it fit like a glove! except for that one piece that had trouble going in because I bent the tension arm a tad when I put my foot on top of if to hold it while I drilled the hole. (my bad) Definetly feel the difference when turning, feels stiffer. I decided to keep it flat black. EDIT: I took a better picture to replace the crummy one that was on here before. This is how it looks installed:

Is this brace supposed to be painted?

Awesome! Yes if you have access to a lift, it makes it so much easier. Glad you got it all installed, looks good.The brace is painted with Rustolium Hard Hat...their industrial division, so it should be good.

Got it! I'm at work so i must be brief with my "review." First thing i noticed was the car felt smoother! Even my GF commented on how much smoother the car felt. It doesn't seem to road steer as much and turn in is less labored for sure. I haven't been able to really put it to the test yet but so far, i am really floored by the overall quality, craftsmanship and performance. Thanks Jonnie, it was well worth the wait!
