infiniti j30 tension rod?

07-13-2005, 07:23 PM
Recently I took my j30 to a regular maintenance and the tech told me both Tension rods are worn out and need to be replaced or the wheels will miss-align and they could blow up!

Does any one knows where can I get this parts besides the dealer? (Tension Rods)
I checked all the regular parts stores (like autozone) and no luck!

Thanks for the help

The only place I could find them was at a dealer. Just fork out the $80 and buy both of them. You will need a press to get the old ones out and to install the new ones. The tension rods can be removed from the car in about 5 minutes.

i am having the same problem. as far as the tires blowing up, screw that! they wont blow up so if you short on money you can give it a little bit...i have been rolling on bad tension rod bushings for about 4 months now. they will slightly throw your alignment off a very little bit and your tires will just wear horrible. if you keep driving on them and dont noticce the wires showing then you risk a blow out. napa said they carry then for $40 each but i think they are solid bushing wereas the j30 came factory with hydraulic (fluid filled) bushings.

id call napa you might be able to get them cheaper
