Yeah, that's a tension rod. If you want aftermarket then get max, spl, kts, or kazama.

I've had multiple vendors tell me to go with a brand other then megan for suspension parts... they are not as well made, not as beefy. I just got some spl tension rods for my s14 and they are the best I could find. Top notch stuff.

The point isn't to be beefy, what really counts are how well the welds are and the quality/material of the end links.

How about stock? If you are short on cash get one from a junkyard, that money could be much better spent elsewhere on the car.

well, i believe this is one of those places "elsewhere on the car" that he should be spending money on.

i would recommend powered by MAX for their amazing quality to price ratio.

SPL if youre balling.

If you just need a replacement to keep you on the road then you can have one of my stock T/C rods, just pay for shipping.

If you were to go the stock route, buying them used and getting new urethane bushings would be cheaper and better
