My R33 GTS came over the water from Japan with a rear anti roll bar, no front no other visible mods. Why would a Japanese owner only fit the rear and no a front. Also no sign of the front ever having been there. This car is stock untouched except for the rear bar:confused: What use is the rear bar alone except in more extreme racing?

Are you talking about the anti roll bar under the car or a strut brace joining the top of the towers together?

I'd be worried if you didn't have a front anti roll bar!!!

As I've said before, I can't see the slightest point in a rear strut brace, unless you think the whole of your rear windscreen and boot area is bendy.

Front yes, I understand, but the back?

Sorry I did mean the rear Strut brace, wrong terminology. Just curious to see if it was a trend or some weird Japanese choice thing!!

totally standard car only a rear strut brace thats really weird indeed :confused:
usually only the front ones are being fitted and the rear ignored
gtr's have a front and rear strut brace as standard so the rear must be of some use
