Jon, i'd emailed you awhile back about getting one of the s13 braces. At the time you didn't have any available. If you've got any now please let me know.

thanks.

Whenever you get the S14 brace ready I have money in hand, make sure you post up, I was planning on building my own because the Nismo is so spendy, but with the thought youve put into that thing, I would rather just buy it

Yeah i second that thought on the s14 brace. I'd much rather have one these, even if they are still a PITA to install. Especially at that price. Let us know when the s14 is ready.

I did not realize this had been up for this long. If you have a brace available for an S-13, I would be glad to take it off your hands.

If you could e-mail me the price shipped to 78242 and your Pay-Pal info we can do this as soon as [email protected]...

Jonnie,got the brace in.Thanks for the quick shipping.

To everyone interested.. the difference this made in my s13 is ridiculous. I already have front and rear strut bars, this brace REALLY tightened up the steering. Now i just need a better sway bar for the back + coils and my suspension is set

Jonnie Fraz wrote:Ok boys and girls...I have been working on this for a while, and I have had some great success with this bolt in kit. Basicly I designed this as an alternative to the Nismo Power Brace. Nismo makes a great product, but I thought there was room for improvement. With my kit it is not nessasary to to take out all front end to install the brace. It bolts in using existing holes in the brackets, this allows for quick install, and not having the need to realign your car...although it is probilly a good Idea. The kit includes a cross brace, anti crush spacers, sandwich plates, all grade 8 hardware, and a vial of red loctite to keep it all together. Here is a pic of the parts and the tools required to install. I sell the whole kit for $90.00 plus shippingBeing that I am one guy fabbing these please contact me for availbility.I take Paypal for payment.

Installed pics



Any questions feel free to ask away.Thanks Jonnie
I am very impressed with this product. If i didnt all ready have my chassis dialed in with the parts i have , i would definitely buy this from you.

I received this bad boy yesterday. If not for one of my arms being banged up a little the install would not have taken more than 10minutes.Great product, good seller. Thanks Jonnie.

in addition to protecting the oil pan, it might have some ground effect too. I'll add that to mine

Jonnie

We have a plasma cam. If your having a problem getting your parts in a timely manner we could help you out. I checked out Greg's (Hitman) before he installed it and I think we could handle your stuff. The plasma is how we make our strut tie bar feet.

I'll be picking up my newest vert next week and would like to really stiffen the fron suspension and this really seems like a good product. If you have one available I'd love to pick one up.

Let me know if you have them in stock either by posting here or email [email protected]

just installed the bar yesterday and drove around today. It felt great. A lot of the play in steering is now gone, hence turn in is faster. My suspension's all stock but the difference is quite noticeable. There's also less wiggly movement when it goes over bumps.

Thanks Jonnie for a great product.

Installation note: when the front wheels are off the ground, the front sway bar moves forward and might interfere with the tension arm brace (like 1-2mm of clearance). Jacking the wheels up a bit might help. Best way is to drive the car up a pit, or use those autozone plastic ramps, so all suspension components stay where they should.
