The NC was a pretty rigid little car when it was introduced, but time moves on. As cars age, their chassis loosens up. A floppy chassis means less precision, more rattles and decreased ride quality as the chassis bends instead of letting the suspension deal with it.
IL Motorsports has developed this front cross brace as a replacement for the factory one, to stiffen up the front end. Loss of ground clearance is minimal and the powdercoated aluminum won't rust.
Fits all manual transmission NCs but not the automatics. Compatible with V8s as well as four cylinder cars.
