NOTE: This brace kit will fit all MX-5's, but is intended primarily for 90-95 MX-5's equipped with POWER STEERING. The routing of the power steering lines required that we modify the brace support bar to provide adequate clearance for these lines on this application
Developed to stiffen any MX-5 chassis, this assembly proves most beneficial when using any relatively strong aftermarket anti roll bar, including Racing Beat’s tubular bar. This kit both effectively minimizes chassis flex that reduces anti roll bar performance and eliminates possible cracking of the anti roll bar chassis mounts that results from repeated hard cornering.
Several years ago Racing Beat developed a Front Anti Roll Bar Reinforcement Brace for the 1993 RX-7, which faced a similar problem. We found that we could adapt this part for the MX-5 by designing a brace that would tie both left and right sway bar chassis mounts together, and add additional support to the anti roll bar chassis mount. Using the mounting bolts and retaining nuts supplied in the kit, a support bar is placed into position and tightened against the frame rail. As the retaining nuts are being tightened against the support block, the anti roll bar mounting bolt is being forced outward against the anti roll bar chassis mount. This support provides a very simple and extremely effective way to load the mount and eliminate potential cracking and minimize movement
Manufactured from hollow-core steel tubing and utilizing laser-cut end flanges, this brace is finished with a rust-proof powder coat finish. Installation is accomplished by simply removing the sway bar mounting bolts and inserting the brace and support bar. Step-by-step instructions with fully detailed photos are included for easy installation.
