PostSubject: My Custombuild Rear Strut Bar   Tue Mar 11, 2014 4:54 pm

Hi Guys!

Here's my new custombuild part for my beloved ae101 = rear strut bar

Last Christmas, I bought a new electric arc welding machine [Christmas gift for myself]. I was surfing in the net [as usual] then I came across more pictures of ultra racing ae101 rear strut bar. I thought that time, maybe I can make my own rear strut bar. I look some materials at my garage and found some angle bar, flat bar, pipe etc., now it's time to use my new welding machine.

first, I made a pattern

cut, weld and drill some hole to the new bracket

measure the length, cut, weld the pipe

paint the strut bar, attached sticker

assembled the strut bar

attached to my car


I made the design simple and rigid so it's function will be worth.

To those who missed my prevous article Rear Tie Bar, I also custom build this tie bars
here's the photo Very Happy 


and my engine first gen 4efe [ECU 4efte turbo] with OEM 3-pt. strut bar Very Happy 

plus 4 short struts and lowering springs the ride became more stable specially in hard cornering at highways.

my future plans, make a front tie bars [I will think the best design first] I don\'t know

Wow, you made your own rear strut bar?!?! Awesome! I was kinda disappointed to see you've only got one bolt on each side... IMO, it should be all welded, and there should be more holding the bar down to the bracket. The stiffer, the better!

And yeah, definitely do a bar over the engine!
