Awesome. I love that JDM tight steering angle when you were doing that donut(JK but it looks like a load of fucking fun, too bad I don't got the balls to do it). As for your tension rod, why not just run the stock  s13 one? It's not adjustable, but it gives you 6.2 degrees of caster and it's a hell of a lot cheaper. Get some poly ones or some used ones with poly bushings pressed in and you're set. I used stock ones and it's holding up just fine.
