Custom front strut tower brace for Datsun 240Z, 260Z, and 280Z, 1970-78. This is our custom made in the USA strut bar that fills in where other strut bars are lacking. Fully tig welded with gusseted ends for vertical and lateral stability. The main bar is .065" wall steel tubing which makes for extreme ridgidity as well as low weight. The complete bar weighs in at 3 lb. 4 oz. This bar utilizes a double ended 5/8" thread turnbuckle bolt in the middle to adjust the length and is able to add preload on the strut towers once installed. This makes for easy installation with the old Z struts being in different locations from years of use. Once this bar is installed, it makes for a fully rigid structure that controls all axis of movements, not just the side to side movement that most strut bars address. The strut bar works with all "L" engines carbureted and fuel injectioned as well as LS based V8 swaps. If you are looking for a flashy polished strut bar for shows this is not the bar for you, but for function we feel it is the best available. We sell these bars in black powder coat finish.
* This bar will not fit on stock 280Z cars with fuel injection (hits the aux air valve) and if you are running the stock vacuum bottle bracket on the right inner fender the bar will require notching for this bracket.
