View Full Version : N1 Duals and Clearance.

I just Installed my N1 duals.
When i looked under the car, they seem VERY close to the rear sway bar. Close enough that i can push them to hit each other.
Also seems close to the rear diff.

Does anyone have the Duals and sway bars? Do they hit? What did you do to prevent this?

Your exhaust hangers may be worn out.
I have the factory SE rear sway bar, and mine comes close, yes, but no matter how much I push on the exhaust, it doesnt hit. (just checked)
Then again, when I put mine on, I ordered a set of new exhaust hangers, just to be safe.
If your hangers look excessively streched, you can get yourself a new set.
(about $7 each from your local dealership)
Alternately you can use hose clamps around them as others have suggested in various posts.

Hope this helps ya out.

this is common, it hits once in awhile, and if using suspention tecq bars, they hit alot supposedly, i have an s14 with whiteline adj bars and im fine, theyre close, but in reg to what una said, if theyre stretched, that just means theyre lower, whice is actually the fix if it hits too much...you put somthing in the open hole in the hangers, but regardless, even if it rattled to high heck, id still love it it looks awesome,a sounds great, and added som power
