it dont matter, they will interchange.

only difference is the interior trim.

I installed the GTI-R strut tower brace on my sedan and it worked perfectly - but only because I have a ca18det - on the factory motor it has to be slightly bent.

thanks for the info...the reason i asked is that i saw some selling on EBAY for the 240SX's and they are adjustable to some point so i was kinda trying to find out about it b4 i purchase it.
i also saw a friend of mine with a similar looking one on his Wingroad. i think i may just measure it end to end, hole for hole....and hope its the same

thanks again to all, anyone knows the exact or substitute for rear disc brakes for the same b12. MODEL, MAKE, YR...anyting....

If I'm not mistaken the B12's in Europe had some models with disc brakes. Other than that your only option requires some cutting and welding (trust me I know).

active tuning makes a rear strut bar for the B13 sentra, it mounts in the B12's with very slight modification of the sheetmetal, it will mount behind the rear seat so you can't even tell it's there, the link below has instructions on what must be modified to install it, this bar is supposed to be one of the best for the rear,

your best bet is to look on sr20forums they can get you all strut bars you want and they will ship just about any where(i personally have sent parts to netherlands, australia as well as all over the states...lol).

the springs....you can use b13 springs ...so that will open up a whole lot more options than trying to find b12 springs!I have gtir coil overs on my n13 pulsar(same as a b12!!)
i would suggest agx adjustable shocks...and hyperco or road magnet springs are some good ones.eibachs are good to the sportlines..

if we could not post our opinions..the forums would be really empty!
you or anyone else would not upset me by posting your own opinion on something as long as its not a personal attack...everyone is allowed their own opinion and many will differ...all is good!

:cool:

back on subject.....to really get the best spring and shock for your ride you must consider what you are going to use it for that will really help narrow down what you are gonna need....:cool:

A+ to that.

if you're putting aftermarket springs/coilovers in, minimum you should be using strut wise is the KYB AGX. stock replacement struts won't be able to handle the new spring rates.

as for springs, budget-wise road magnets are the best by far. best price and 2nd only to the hyperco's. they are a great daily driving spring that's good for autocross too!

if you want the adjustability, ground controls. paired with AGX, the combo is a much better coilover setup than Ksports, Megans, and D2's. and costs the same or less.
