Compared to our regular Tension Rods for Nissan models, our SuperLock items are both kinked and offset so as to provide extra clearance for cars running wide wheels in conjunction with steering lock modifications including chopped/drop knuckles, relocated steering racks and extended lower arms. Regular straight tension rods often foul the inner lip of the front wheels on cars running lock modifications when they reach more extreme steering lock angles – by fitting our SuperLock arms with the supplied offset bushes you will gain a huge amount of extra clearance to prevent any fouling or binding. Compared to our ExtraLock Tension Rods, our SuperLock items feature both a more rugged design and further improved clearance capabilities.
Adjusting your front caster is crucial when it comes to dialling in the desired amount of steering response and feel to your Nissan. Reducing the caster will make the steering wheel easier to turn when driving but will reduce the feel and feedback of the steering. Increasing the front caster will increase feel and firm up the steering. Increasing caster also increases the self centering effect of the steering making the steering naturally return to centre faster, ideal for drifting.
The standard tension rods on Nissans feature large liquid-filled bushes that are prone to failing – by replacing these with the high load spherical bearings as found in our tension rods you will notice a lot less play in your front suspension setup.
