  • Sale
  • Regular price $132.00


The GKTECH V2 S13/180sx/R32 subframe weld in reinforcement plates have been designed from a 3D scan with the addition of CMM data to help to reinforce your subframe where it needs it most. Laser cut, steel, and dimple died for strength these plates make reinforcement of the rear subframe a heap easier than attempting to do it yourself. The V2 reinforces the area around the rear diff more and the overall fit is better than our previous V1.

What's the advantage of using the GKTech weld in subframe kit?
Broken subframes are pretty common, especially in drift/motorsport applications. Just as people seam weld their cars, the subframe should not be forgotten. Remembering that it takes a heap of the stress under load. Also, a simple and effective mod while the subframe is out.

What modifications are required, is this hard to fit?
No modifications are required, simply just remove the subframe and weld the plates in.

Is there anything else needed for installation?
You will need a welder. In terms of the kit, it will arrive as shown in the product photo.

Can I install this myself? If so how long will installation take?
Yes, provided you have welding experience. Welding in of the kit should take around 30 minutes.
