Re: X-Trail Strut Bar


I should also add that any added strength to the chassis is always a good thing - every time I've got stuck somewhere (wheels off the ground for example, on dunes @ Stockton/Kurnell, or one wheel hanging in a hole @ Charmhaven emoticon ), and I've had to go and open the boot to get recovery gear out, I've noticed it's almost impossible to close the boot door again because of the flex/twist of the chassis when it's not evenly supported by 4 wheels planted firmly on the ground.

Re: X-Trail Strut Bar


Car bars should fit straight onto it. You should only look for one that fits the upper suspension mount of the x-trail...

I did mine with Sentra SER Vspec (front one)..but for the rear one dont want to because it will look..kind of, ugly.

HI driftking,

Yes, the bar that mounts on top of the front suspension is the one I'm looking for (see the pic in page 1 of this thread)

And yes, the rear one looks ugly and it'll take-up space.

Hi Paul,

I'm glad you made it to the forums.

Image to the Australian Exy site emoticon

Will let everyone know once I get more details about the strut bar. They don't have the rear one however, so it's just the front.

Please make sure you visit the The Hall Of Fame and let other members know about the excellent deal you scored on your Black exy with all the accessories emoticon

Also, please update the location in your profile when you get a chance.

Enjoy your stay mate.

But I think that the main problem with the x-trail chasis is the big rear opening...it makes the chassis les stiffer.

I was thinking about fitting it the other day, since my X now has a lot of groans at the back end and that doenst sounds very good lately...

So, I did some research, and it looks like almera bars will fit the x-trail too(its the same platform). But I would first test it and then buy it.

Jalal, you were the one who installed a suspension lift onyour exy? Did you loose too much downward travel? complete wheel travel?. Is the suspension stiffer or softer?.

Also, I was wondering, during your visit to arb(correct me if Im wrong with you please

 =D ) Did you notice if they had air lockers for x-trails? or at least LSD...

Since that drives me mad:S everytime that Im losing momentum because of wheel travel issuues...

Re: X-Trail Strut Bar


Hi driftking,

I haven't installed the lift kit on mine (didn't see any need for it as yet).

It was xtrailing & swagman4x4 who had them fitted and you can read all about their experiences HERE

And it was Rich (basshead) who visted ARB and the details of his visit are in the same thread above (page 6 and 7)

Good luck emoticon

Re: X-Trail Strut Bar


I have made enquiries reagrding the air lockers at ARB and the reply was that they have not even looked at the diffs or the system on the xtrail, I guess if more people enquire about it they may do so, i would be interested in something to improve off road capabilities.

Hi Guys,

I have now received photos of the newly designed strut bar by Alutec for the exy.

Prices are being negotiated by the supplier with Alutec and I will advise you when they let me know.

Looks very sexy emoticon
