What is the advantage of using a HICAS lock bar?
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.
