So you want a 350z bash bar.
If you’re skidding your Nissan 350z more and more, it’s a fairly easy decision to make – why keep destroying your bumper bars and bending your reinforcement bar every time you take a small hit?

Hose lines for oil coolers can be easily mounted to a bash bar using zip ties in seconds. Doing the same with an OEM front bumper bar can be a frustrating process, especially if you’re regularly removing your front bar.

Choosing aftermarket suspension for your car doesn’t have to be difficult. Despite the wide range of options out there, most of us can narrow down our choices by asking one question:
