WTS Koni Red Sport Adjustable inserts For 280ZX Strut

As the title says I have a pair of lightly used Koni Red Sport Adjustable inserts For 280ZX Strut for sale. $200 OBO. They worked great for my setup bet are a bit of a pain to adjust as you have to push them all the way in and then turn them to adjust. Once they are set they worked great with my 200...

Re: 2.3L of fun

No test drive yet. I need to locktite the strut bolts and tighten the strut nuts. Then put in the seats and finish my door seals. I should have her out by the end of the week. The only reason there is a kink in the middle of the bar is that is the way it came. It is just my Futofab bar that I got be...

Re: 2.3L of fun

well I got it all cleaned up and installed. I decided to paint it all red, my son keeps asking me to put something red on my car so there you go. I have it installed with the old end links but the new ones are on the way. There is minimal preload on it so it will be ok till the new ones gets here. h...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I have been working on getting the re-profiled sway bar installed. It fits nicely and end up in a good spot under the control arm. Now I am on to end links. 20170318_191215_zpstj8dhqrv.jpg 20170306_184040_zpsyhlacyit.jpg I am going to cut on the red line to make room for the link to move without con...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Well I went by one of the local boat builders today. They have a full machine shop so they are going to make me some standoffs and bend the sway bar for me. I will just need to get myself some endlinks and I will be set.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I have been putting my suspension back together after Byron shortened my struts for me. It ended up a bit lower than I wanted but that is an easy fix. T3 makes a spacer block for their camber plates that will give me another inch. https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/510/riser-blocks-camber-plates I s...

Re: Gordy's ecotec 510

I never thought of getting the tension rod front mounting lowered. I am running 1" bump steer spacers. Shortening the end links just gets me closer to the tension rods.I am going to put the struts on tomorrow and see exactly what I need for it to work. Bigger bump steer spacers would help but t...
