I put a stillen strut bar on my old 04 maxima, i now want to put one on my 06 z. Just curious if i could save a few bucks and just swap it from max to z... anyone know if it will fit?

Try it out and see. Just be sure to park both cars on a flat surface with the wheels pointing straight ahead. If you don't ensure that, you'll have a heck of a time taking off the bar and putting it back on.

actually it is best to leave the OEM one in unless you are going for name-brand/bling effect. as for swapping from the maxima to a Z, i doubt it will fit.

I'm guessing that the track on the Maxima is a good bit narrower than the Z. In that case the bar will be too short as the strut towers will be farther apart. The bar can be adjusted for length but I doubt it will be enough to make up the difference.

I agree with Steve, the only reason to change the strut bar is for bling factor.
