Folks, we have had a LOT of views to this thread, so there is a lot of interest on something like this. As I know, there is only one place that makes anything like this for the B13 chassis and they seem to have moved away from the Nissan community. I really think this would be a hit if you can help develop it it for us. Take a stock mount for measurements and replace the rubber isolator with a spherical bearing and done.

They took it down on the other site, but it isn't worth it as this company doesn't seem at all interested in forum requests.

Brent, please help out the less educated or flat-out ignorant. Like me.

If you are interested in this product, then I am too. LOL

What exactly are you looking for?

Who is this for? Street ie. everybody? Road-course, auto-cross guys? 1/4 mile because race-car?

What are the benefits? Ability to control of the rear camber/caster? Less movement/compliance out of the rear suspension? More travel in the back? All of the above? None of the above?

What are the negatives, if any? Re-build more often than stock (never)? Re-grease often? No negatives?

Would this work with all set-ups? Coilovers? Aftermarket replacement struts and springs (AGX/CSK, Hyperco/RM)? Both?

Appreciate you shedding any light and clarifying on this product request.

They can be made to work with both OEM and coilover top hats. They eliminate the rubber rear bushing in the strut mount and shouldn't eliminate any travel. They just reduce slop in the rear and get a lighter/stronger part in. It would be pretty rare to have to replace the spherical bearing in the mount as there is less rotation than front camber plates. There usually isn't enough room to do a camber adjust in the rear top hat area, but the B13 has lower arms available (TurboFX and Ingalls) that allow camber/toe adjust with a smidge of caster with the alignment bolts already.
