Swap Information

To swap to the later style mounts, it's simple. Just remove the main bracket from the body and tension rod from the control arm. Removing the anti-sway bar from the control arm will make it a little easier to bolt up the new tension rods.

Before installing the new rods, make sure the bushings are in good shape. If they need replacement, you have the option of buying new Nissan bushings or buying new polyurethane bushings. The poly bushings are found in the main Z31 bushing kit available from |Motorsport Auto. Supposedly, the tension rod bushings are the same as those used in the S13 models. So if you only need those bushings, you can order them from any one of the dozens of sites on the internet carrying those parts.
