Anyone know if there's a bolt in option ?
Iv fitted a r31 front sway bar and while it feels more stable it understeer more and have lost the turn in that the stock bar had hopefully there's a rear bar to even it out otherwise stock bars going back in.

There are standard 200b rear sway bars. Hard to find though

280ZX ones fit 200B SSSs but they do have a few differences in the rear end. Might be worth a shot though?

Markus, which 200Bs had rear sway bars? I don't recall any of mine ever having one.

Yep, 280zx alright. Grab the pins, bar and hangers it will all bolt up.

Not sure exactly which. I think some of the coupes had them. Either way there is one in my garage waiting to be fitted again

I know the 300zx rear sway bar will fit a 180b sss, you need to weld some tabs onto the rear cross member.

so if the 180b sss and the 200b are similar this could also be an option

I installed a hollow Z31 300ZX rear swaybar in my 180B SSS.
Sits below the crossmember and trailing arms so it does slightly compromise the ground clearance. I wouldn't do it to a rally car but it works nicely in mine (I have heavier springs, custom valved Konis and a heavier front swaybar).

Cheers!

Hi 180BSSST,

Im interested in installing a rear sway bar into my 180bsss and didn't think you could till I read this thread.

what's is involved in installing the Z31 300zx... what mods are needed? does a Z32 rear sway bar fit??

Can you post a picture to show how low to the ground it sits and where the mounting points are?

your assistance would be appreciated

Cheers
