Mounting front bar 180sx

Recommended Posts

I have just put a vertex style kit on my 180 and have found the front bar seems a bit loose,

and the other night i hit a steep driveway and the popped drivers side front guard up ,as it pulled the front 2 bolts through.

 

I have it mounted with 2 bolts each side from the guard to the bar, 2 on the front radiator support and 2 in the wheel well

from the guard to the wing of the front bar.

i still have the brace from the bottom of the front guards to the chassis as well.

 

My question is are there any other brackets i could make up to give it a bit better strength ?

Or any other tips that may help ?

 

Also a picture of the bar to give you an idea.

Dont know about aftermarket front bars, but i just fitted a type x front to my 180, and there were 5 bolts on each side that bolted up to the guards.

 

(looks like an origin streamline front btw)

stock type x bars have a million mounting points, that is no stock bar he's running

 

are you running the front reo? i noticed when i didnt run mine the front bar was sloppy as

yeah i am still running the front reo bar

and i have also managed to get another 2 bolts in either side

 

my biggest problem is the flex i get out of the guards, i might tr making up some heavier duty braces for the and see how it goes.
