Ultra Racing Braces

Ok, finally got the rear brace installed.

What happened was the middle lower control arm wasn't coming out when I tried to install this brace a few weeks ago.. I found that the bolt had fused to the inside of the bushing. No big deal, but since I would have to cut it out, I needed to wait on a new control arm and new bolts. They came a few days ago.



Got the old one dangling from the fused in bolt. Had to use an impact hammer, a saw and an impact gun to get it free.



You can see it dangling behind the endlink for the sway bar (which is green)



Made the cuts so the bar is gone, but the bolt is still screwed into the nut, which, for some reason, Honda felt was necessary to have WELDED on.

'



The new arm and old on the left next to new. You can see how badly damaged the bushing was.



All bolted up!



Still clears the exhaust. I think this was a great mod, it compliments the Cusco mid brace nicely.

So far, drove about 30 miles on twisty roads... feels great, rear end might be slightly tighter but I can't tell for sure, either way I love how it looks under the car

Cool man.

They don't make one of these for the 6th gen USA Accord, but they do make one for the Euro/JDM CF4/CL1. Pretty sure it would fit our USA Accord....but I have custom exhaust (2.5 inch but it hangs lil lower than stock) and clearance could be an issue for me.



Can you answer a couple questions for me:

1. How much ground clearance did you lose?
2. How much space, in inches, is between your exhaust pipe and the bracing?

I lost none, since I already had the Cusco brace up front.. but I'd say it drops about 1.5 inches lower than the exhaust.. you can see it under the car if you were behind me.

There is less than an inch between the exhaust and the brace.. less than half an inch. You might run into problems with that thicker pipe.
