Default Front sway bar options. 240sx?

Hey Guys,

Looking for a front sway bar option that is better suited for a front sump'ed vehicle.

Has anyone played around with anything?

I want to put a larger capacity oil pan on my sr20, and the front sway and its upward bends are stopping this.

The 240sx bar looks like it will work. Just looking for a bit of confirmation before I go ahead and purchase something.

This is a 240sx (although not stock, same bends):



Heres what I am working with:







Waiting to hear back from a few local craigslist flakes about renting a bar for test purposes.

Thanks.


Edit: I am not the one who cut this poor truck all up. I am the one who bought it from someone for a substantial loss to them
Making it better one weekend at a time!

I'd be surprised if the frames on the D21 and 240 had anything in common.

Subscribing for the answer.

Going by these measurements, they are extremely close. Still waiting on the flakes...

The s14 bar looks to square and may hit the tension control mounts.

The s13 bar looks good. Z33 also looks ok, but a bit too short. D21 is 39" from end to end.

My worry is do the aftermarket bars have enough bend in the end points to make enough clearance for the steering linkages. An s13 bar is only 60 bucks on ebay, so I may just have to find out.
