Postby buttz » Wed Jan 30, 2013 7:08 pm

went with a buddy there to pick up coilovers off a fella who was breaking an altezza and i noticed it had thicker anti roll bars front and rear so i went under the car to have a look and i also found out it had front tension arms whick i never seen on an altezza before so i said id buy the lot and got them for a handy 60euro for the lot :D

anybody no what make they are there a metallic red althought they were probably sprayed ?

front bar is around 30mm and rear is between 26-28mm

There uprated ones :mrgreen:
measure the diameter of the bar where the bushes are, or see if the bush has a number on them :wink:

I'm wrapping tape around the bars and were they over lap I'm slicing with a Stanley blade ,
I can't get my hands on a vernier calliper so it's the only way I can do it


Rear circumferance is 83mm divide by 3.14 and I'm gettin 26.43mm
Front is 98mm divide by 3.14 and I'm gettin 31.21mm

Those adjustable arms arnt tension rods.. They are TOM's strengthening bars.. They go from the tow eyes at the front to the chassis leg where the ARB is. I have an absolutely mint pair from my old Altezza if anyone wants them. I had the full set of 3 of the TOM's strengthening bar kits but never sold this pair.
Think I saw them once all listed on BulletproofAutomotive, not sure if they are still there or not..

For reference, tension rods are the kinked bars that go from the lower arm to the chassis..
