  • Stock S14 Front Tension Arm Length

    I am so freakin tired of searching around, that I'm giving up and making a thread

    Just curious as to the stock tension arm length on an s14..preferably from the front mount bolt centerline to the first 'stud' on the end where it attached to the control arm.

    I know the S14 arms are supposedly 1" longer (as discovered through searching), and know that the S13 measurments are around 12.75 (from first stud to bolt centerline)...however I do not just want to assume that this would make the s14 ones 13.75, as the total difference in length certainly doesn't mean that the bolt holes themselves are equal 1" difference (although it may, I just don't want to assume)

    This is not precision measurement as mine are still on the car and I had to eyeball it, but it looked more like 13 5/8ths (I'd but 13.75" as well). If you really want, next time I'm working on the car, which should be soon, I'll take it off and measure it more accurately.

      Yea no real rush on it, was just curious as to stock length. Dopey friend of mine tore all his stuff apart to have it media blasted washed, and now putting it back together forgot to measure out the tension rods with stock ones as he threw the stock ones out

              Now, just to confirm, s14 and s13 tension rods are different length? Are adjustable rods(Megan, tein, etc.) different for the s13/14 or do they share the same part number and just adjust out?

                So center to center it's ~13.5".

                S13 tension arm is 12.75" c-c, so about .75" longer or 20 mm.
