  • Need help for the steering rack project

    Heya guys,

    Well I don't know where the thread is meh.. but anyways I need a bit of help.

    Yes it's moving at SNAIL's pace.. however... that's okay.

    I need solid bushings and these brackets for the racks:



    i mean I can get for 10 bux brand new poly bushings thats not too much of a prob... however im not sure where to get the rack mount holder thingamajig brackets for s13 LHD. Obviously not coming off of my car as i need the car rolling...

    need this in order to finalize a solid mount on the manual rack design... can someone help me?? Not sure if s14 ones are different. Not sure if RHD and LHD is different.. but my primary concern right now is my s13...

    Help a brotha out.

    I think the tear drop shape side is different between S13 and S14 racks.

    So yes, you'll have to look for S13 ones.

      As you can see here are the bushings/bracket how it mounts to the subframe:

        I would think LHD and RHD brackets would be the same, maybe just flip flopped sides. Look on courtesynissan.com see if you can get new oem ones if you cant find any in junkyards.

          Umm yeah. have you tried calling the local dealer?
          I have an S14 parts car with the subframe sitting in the garage.. I can pull a set of S14s if you need it, but won't do you much good if they don't match.

            that looks like rhd to me, if so then yes they are just flip flopped.

              According to Energy suspension, the teardrop bushing is the same for S13/S14, but the circular bushing is different. You can see the extra circular bushing in this picture, the box comes with 3 bushings, 2 of which you use.

              I can't speak for the brackets themselves, but if this is any indication....

                I wish it was easier to adopt Mustang (fox body) racks to our cars....

                  Got junkyards up there? Or just order the part new as suggested. A small bracket like that should be cheap.

                        For many/most cars, the dealer will carry little stuff like that for quite a while. now if you need one of those for an 84 Maxima, you may be in a hurt... but finding one for an S13/S14 shouldn't be a problem.

                          Yeah the ES rack bushings apparently have all 3 bushings in it now to accommodate for both the S13 and S14 racks.

                          They didn't before. They just started doing that recently.
