I've heard yes for both.

I'm still waiting for the coil-overs from SPS, there's some kind of hold up on a core replacement from Koni. Give John an e-mail and he'll answer any of your questions.
I will also be getting the strut bar from him as well. I've already heard of someone installing this on their Redline without a problem, even though some said it could not be done.

The strut bar WILL fit. Its for the ion and our car IS an ion. I was going to buy the strut bar but then i saw the price tag, just for a strut bar..... Id rather do Engine Mods!

how come the eibachs dont work but the sprints do, seems like the same car would have the same design of spring...

i've paid 200 for a strut bar for my 240sx before. But it was straight from Japan,weighed practically nothing, and was extremely strong so the cost was justified. I hope SPS has some reason why the bar cost $200 other than the fact that it's shiney!

I was told the strut bar wouldnt fit, but if you all want to buy it and tell us if it works be my guest :)

And does anyone know if thats the ONLY strut bar they sell for the ion's now? I havent seen any other ones so far.

Might have something to do with the fact that sps designed it, and its the only one around.

I'm sorry but I don't get this comment. Yeah, I'm blowing $1600 on a set of springs and where in his question did he mention anything about Eibachs?

Well now you've been told otherwise, three times.


Why bicker about the price of a strut bar when you're spending 100-130 dollars on a set of lowering springs that do less for your current handling performance than a good strut brace would?
