The all new V3 chromoly rear HICAS lock bar is a direct replacement of your stock HICAS steering unit and as the name suggests, locks the rear steer in place. Essential for Motorsport or as an option to fix the broken expensive OEM Nissan part.
The HICAS lock bar replaces the standard unit and 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?
No, everything required is included (minus tools, obviously).

Yeah it was easy as, especially with the support video there to help!
Well made, well sprayed.
Does what it says on the tin.
My recent purchase was fantastic: great company, responsive, helpful, and friendly. Great product, and it arrived quick. Would recommend.
Fit perfectly, easy install.
Looks good, easy buy, nice price, only thing is I was told that if you use one of these bars and your rear hicas ball joints are stuffed the wheel can kick out while your driving, so not sure what to do there as my joints seem fine but you won’t know when it will happen until it’s to late..
Hi Josh, that's not something that I've ever heard of before as I can't see how the OEM HICAS unit could compensate for a worn ball joint. I think you'll be just fine :)
