Tension Rod Support Bar for Nissan 240SX S13 89-94 / 240SX S14 95-98 - MRS-NS-1791
The 240SX/Silvia is an amazing platform in all it s generations. The FR-Drive train and it s light weight offer a perfect balance between speed and agility. Used in a wide range of motor sports such as drag, drift, autocross, road race and even rally the 240SX has proven it s worth time and time again.
As a street car, it s refined and well mannered, comfortable to drive in and stylish with a bit of aggression in it s curves. Although it s initial design was sporty and aggressive it was still designed as a street car.
In driving your chassis always will endure stresses with every bump and corner you turn. Because of this, performance vehicles will always have chassis reinforcement and rigid strut bars to connect as many points of the car together so that the chassis absorbs less and the suspension absorbs more. In turn this allows your tuning to be more predictable and gives your vehicle a more solid and direct feel.
The 240SX is used heavily in competition and is the weapon of choice for most drifters. Megan Racing has developed a wide range of products to help give drivers an edge over other competitors. With that we offer a wide range of chassis braces and suspension components and have now developed a Front Tension-Rod brace for the S13 and S14 chassis.
This Tension-Rod brace is light weight and yet extremely strong. Designed to "box" in your front-chassis between the Tension-Rods, this bar is adjustable to tune pre-load and adjust the rigidity of the front end.
Made of light-weight aluminum and powder coated a brilliant blue for durability against the elements and a nice finishing touch to the underside of your car, this product is definitely a must for those who know the true value of suspension tuning in their performance machines.
Tension rods: These control caster, anti-dive, and anti-lift in the front suspension. Caster helps determine camber gain over the suspension stroke and steering axis inclination. Caster also helps “auto turn” the wheel when counter-steering. The angle of the tension rod (vertical plane, front to back) also helps determine anti-dive under braking situations, and anti-lift on acceleration.
Tip: If you’re using your tension rods to adjust caster more than one or two degree(s) past factory settings, there will be bind in the lower control arms traditional rubber or urethane bushing. It’s recommended that you change to an aftermarket control arm with a heim joint.
