Tanabe Release Sustec Stabilizer Bars for Nissan GT-R

April 26th, 2010

Tanabe Japan together with Top Racing Hong Kong “GT-R Professional Workshop” has developed the new anti-roll bar specific for the R-35 GT-R. These newly released anti-roll bars were developed from the data gathered by Top Racing on the race track and after severe abuse, it’s been proven that the increase width and stiffness will enhance the handling of the R35. It’s easier for the driver for the turn in and at the same time easier to predict with the increase feedback given from these anti-roll bars.

The front bar is 36.2mm in diameter, which adds an additional of 2.1mm comparing to standard. In the rear, the diameter is 18.2mm, an bump of 4mm.

Cusco Release Front and Rear Sway Bars for Nissan GT-R

April 22nd, 2010

Respected leaders in the aftermarket suspension industry for JDM cars, Cusco have been relatively quiet on the GT-R scene so far under the Cusco brand. They’ve been providing to other brands and playing a background role though so they have the experience to back them. Now they’ve gone public with the first direct to market product, these new Cusco Stabilizer Bars for R35 GT-R.

Up front we have a hollow construction anti-roll bar which is 115% stiffer than the OEM model and 35mm in diameter. It’s designed to reduce body roll in corners and improve steering response and sells for about $440. It’s non-adjustable but, being hollow, it should shave a bit of weight off the stock one.

In the rear is a solid bar which is 185% stiffer than the standard rear bar while being only 16mm in diameter. It’s priced at $400.

Good products at sensible prices, hit up GT-RR.com to get your set…

Another booth featuring the Nissan GT-R at SEMA this year was the Eibach Springs booth. So far Eibach are well known for their Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs that work well in combination with the standard Bilstein dampers.

GTRBlog has learned that in the coming months Eibach will release an anti-roll bar kit for the GT-R as well.

The specific specs on the kit were not given but the more choices on the market the better. Eibach gear is easily available through online retailers at great prices.

Whiteline Adjustable Stabilizer Bars for Nissan R35 GT-R

October 23rd, 2009

whiteline-r35-001

Widely respected, Australian based aftermarket suspension component manufacturer Whiteline has released a range of adjustable sway bars suitable for the Nissan R35 GT-R. Three sway bars are available, one front item and a choice between two different rear options.

The front stabilizer bar is a 33mm solid 3 point adjustable item while in the rear the standard 14mm sway bars can be upgraded to a Whiteline 18mm or a larger 20mm item which also offer the 3 points of stiffness adjustability. All sway bars also ship with polyurethane bushes.

If you’ve wondered exactly why you’d need to upgrade your sway bars, Whiteline put it fairly succinctly in their literature:

A sway bars objective is to reduce sway, or body roll, and stabilise a vehicle under lateral (cornering) forces. Having adjustability permits the roll stiffness to be tuned for different situations without replacing the entire bar. The stiffer the bar, the more force required to move the left and right wheels relative to each other. This increases the amount of force required to make the body roll.

Cornering loads are spread more evenly across the tyres delivering more grip and frankly, that’s what it’s all about. You also get improved tyre wear as your tyres stay flatter and more upright. Comfort improves because your car sits flatter through bends meaning less movement inside the vehicle.

If you’re attending SEMA 2009, which is coming up very quickly now, check out Whiteline at booth #20457 where the R35 GT-R parts should be on display.
