    Anyone else had luck in finding sway bar solution for coilovers?

    I've been doing some research on fitting March coilovers to our North American Micras and wondering if there are any bolt-on solutions for the missing sway bar mounts. Has anyone else bought/had some brackets made up like aftica did in this old thread?

    As far as I can tell mounts are needed for the front and the rear...?

    If you spec your coilovers for the Nismo S March, than you will get those front coilovers with tabs for the front sway bar links.

    Unfortunately this is a case of already speccing coils for a non-Nismo and now trying to source a solution. Lol.

    I forget who it was, but someone had a little bracket made up that bolts on to the two bolts at the bottom, and has a hole for the sway bar link. it was in the original lowering thread on the forum.

    Thread where they were fabricated:

    I'll be doing similar, except I plan on putting a third hole in the mounting bracket and bolting through that (camber bolts + alignment are finicky enough, don't need another piece sandwiched in lol)

    Are you planning on making them yourself, or do you know a guy?

    I hope to design and build them myself, just need to make a jig based on the original shock out of wood. Should be fairly simple (went to school for it lol) but if I need help I have machinist and welder friends.

    Keep me updated and let me know if you want to make another set for sale! What coils are you trying to install?

    I have the Tein GSK20-21AS2 (street advance) installed, with stock tires they'd be awesome since you can drop the car about 4 inches (even though the specs say 3" front and 2.6" rear, when I first put them on I dropped 3.875" in the rear). How ever I get it done I'll likely make up a few sets and print out what ever templates are needed, just figuring out torque now
