Megan Racing Front Pillow Tension Rods - 89-94 Nissan 240SX S13
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.
Those who seek the most from their car know that in the rigors of competition you need to extract every ounce of performance from your machine. You need the capability to have every degree of adjustment above and beyond that of a street driven vehicle. You need the strength to withstands the stresses and strains of hard corners, a rough course and brutal weight transfer and chassis flex.
It s within this understanding that Megan Racing has unveiled our line of reinforced suspension arms that offer the strength and adjustment that any competition vehicle will ever need. Constructed of high-strength steel alloys that offer durability, strength and yet remain light-weight, these control arms have been track tested for months in road race, autocross and drift events to assure quality and performance.
These front pillow tension rods available for the S13, S14 and Z32 chassis are an excellent upgrade. With it s adjust-ability you are able to carefully tune the vehicle s front-Caster to your specifications. The pillow-ball ends replace the stock rubber bushings on the chassis and offers you a more direct and predictable feel that you require in competition. The adjust-ability and feel is also backed with the comfort that your stock thin tension rods are now replaced with thick steel constructed arms that can withstand the stresses of competition.
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.
