    Razlan, I'm ordering from Japan the following parts for my R33 GT-R:

    * Spoon Rigid Collars (including collars for the supports in the centre of the car and the type that fit over the existing rear subframe bushes)

    * Nismo Performance Damper Set

    * Nismo Rear Member Brace

    * Nismo's Under-Floor Reinforcing Brace kit for the BCNR33

    * Nismo Reinforced Steering Mount Bushes

    Rigid Collars (by Spoon Sports) for the R32/R33/R34 GT-Rs! - Page 3 - GT-R Register - Official Nissan Skyline and GTR Owners Club forum

    Will let you know the results once these items have been installed. They should be arriving in two weeks time.

    Jamil - Wicked! Could you then just sort of describe how the car handles, etc like through corners and all that just prior to fitting the parts then of course how it feels with them installed. Thanks in advance :adore:

    The cost will be different depending on the car make and model:

    Rigid Collar set (Front) for BCNR33 Skyline GT-R = £210
    Rigid Collar set (Rear) for BCNR33 Skyline GT-R = £210

    = £420

    EDIT: Not sure about collars for Honda EK4s. Suggest you contact Spoon directly.
