16x8s were a factory option right?

Re: S13 lower control arms

Yep, it’s been done before. Do some google searches and you should be able to find it. The drift kids are always sectioning and lengthening FLCAs so you could certainly section and shorten them as well. They’ll almost certainly be too long as is. http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/showthread.php?3689...

Re: Rack Impressions

How did the steering feel on the 5 mile drive? Right... the steering rack! It's certainly way tighter than it used to be and no more effort than I remember despite the new caster. Unfortunately, I have not had the car plated since Sep. 2017 so it's hard to remember exactly what it felt like. I didn...

Re: Jordan's '72 2 door KA project

I had a week of "vacation" to work on the ole Datsun. Nothing like a shop week to make 8 hour days back at work go by fast! In the instalment: Exhaust rev 4+ Camber plates CV driveline The plan for the week was to get the car drive-able enough (back to stock NA) that I could get it home (600 miles f...

Re: Fuel tank/evap setup needed?

I took a breather from a newer car (Mazda 3 iirc) and ran it out below the trunk floor. At least the inside of the car doesn’t reek like fuel on a hot day now.

Re: Subaru R180 diff in Nissan case

If you clean/degrease the threads, a Loctite product would suffice. Red 272 @ ~2900psi shear strength or 680 retaining compound @ ~3700psi shear strength would be good options to consider.

I found out the hard way that there are 2 different ring gear sizes. The older Nissan ones are 110mm ID and the newer ones are 115mm ID.
Do the bolt PCDs line up still? Could always do some machining to make it work if that’s the only issue.

Re: Center Mounted Parking Brake

I used an early 90s Honda civic one. It has a decent tail on it that you can work with. There should be pics in the built thread somewhere (late spring 2014).

Re: #4G63510 Suspension

If you could get the car set up for 205/45 then there are a bunch of options. You didn’t mention if the strut tubes are shortened or not. If not, you may be sitting at a static ride height quite far down in the shocks travel meaning that the damping is poor. I’ve lived through this with my 280zx OEM...

Re: Converting NOnLSD to LSD

This one sounds promising but I would confirm before purchasing. This link is also a 2 way. You could always hold out for a 1 way or 1.5 way if so desired. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tomei-Technical-Trax-Advanced-2-Way-LSD-Diff-S13-S14-IA-for-open-rear-562021-JDM/141354888748?epid=1017843713&hash=item...

Re: Converting NOnLSD to LSD

I’m not partial to any brands but you for sure want to get one designed for OPEN diff 29 spline output shafts (s13 is a safe bet). Some use a pair of short side vLSD stubs so the LSD manufacturer doesn’t have to cut internal splines in the side gears (ATS and maybe others). This is not one that you ...

Jordan, I think I noticed you had a wanted add on C/L for another 240sx driveshaft? I have one if you are interested. I will put my hands on it on Tuesday if that still works for you?
Yep, guilty lol! Sounds great. Just shoot me a PM if it’s a goofy 3 bolt one and we can go from there. Thanks!
