The all new V3 chromoly rear HICAS delete bar with toe arm mounts replaces your stock HICAS steering unit and also has mounts for regular toe arms in the exact position they are in on non HICAS subframes. Essential for Motorsport or as an option to fix the broken expensive OE Nissan part.
NOTE: Includes nuts and bolts to mount the toe arm
Removing the HICAS steering rack gives you more predictability of the rear of your vehicle. A must if you plan on drifting your car or taking it to the track.
What does HICAS actually do?
The HICAS system is meant to help with handling however given that the technology is 20 or so years old, it's certainly not great and is hated by most. Chances are if you have felt HICAS work while driving with a bit of excitement, you want to remove it ASAP!
How do I know if my car has HICAS or not?
HICAS equipped cars have a power steering reservoir level sensor built into the cap and two wires and a float inside the reservoir. If you lift off the power steering cap with those wires the HICAS light will turn on when you start the car. Looking under the rear of the car you will also find hydraulic hoses and another steering rack device hooked to the differential and the rear suspension to steer the rear wheels. When the key is turned on and motor not started the warning lights come on (HICAS) light shows up then too.
Will this HICAS lock bar fit my car?
We can only guarantee fitment for the vehicles listed above under Vehicle Compatibility. If your car is not listed there then we don't know if it will fit your car. Please don't ask us as we do not know the answer.
Will my HICAS light stay on if I install this HICAS lock bar?
Yes, the HICAS light on your dash will stay on if the ECU thinks that it's not working correctly. This can easily be resolved by removing the bulb for the HICAS warning light behind the dash.
Is there anything else that I need to install this HICAS lock bar?
Yes, unlike a regular HICAS lock out bar this unit is designed to be used in conjunction with regular toe arms. Regular toe arms need to be purchased and also you'll need to replace the bushes on the knuckle side (we sell both).

Need to send stickers with EVERY order you guys forgot mine
John helped me out n replied to emails very fast even when very busy with Black Friday sales. Great idea that brackets r in exact oem location for standard toe arms, n probably stronger design than Nissan’s non-hicas(which apparently needs gk brace). Looks well made n like that it’s light chromoly, but prefer if brackets for arms were a little thicker(tho look well braced). Like that it deletes my 28yr old Nissan arms that would b worn n prob move around too much in hard cornering. Order was processed very fast, n handy that website shows stock. Just needs instructions. Handy toe arm measurements (see other full kit with arms, n open diagram). Hoping the ball joint Gods let me remove them from knuckle while still on car(remove camber arms n coilovers for more access, clean, tap like Jerimy Clarkson to try loosen up, wd40 soaking for ages, hacksaw or grind off lip for circlip (mine-32 gtst, think gtr r different), maybe heat/freeze spray, some sort of press or ball joint remover etc n if that fails FPG(Frenchy’s Performance Garage) hav a custom removal tool especially for this job $179+gst, may also use to remove/install all bushes then try sell tool.. 😆.
Also luv the camber bolts n braided brake lines with hardline delete I got. Will all make car lot better after installed. Thanks.
Great items great fitment
Thank you Gktech
