Re: T3 Bump steer spacers

Also if I don't use the spacer will I have to swap struts left to right to clear the ZX caliper?

T3 Bump steer spacers

I just installed none shortened 280zx struts with the spacer from T3. It doesn't look like I will be able to reconnect the sway bar and the tension control rods. When I but a jack under the control arm to lift it the car starts to lift before I get close enough to put the bolts in. Do I only need th...

Re: David's 73 510

I haven't posted in a while. Picked up some 280zx struts. Rebuilt them and used the 510 purch and springs. Decided not to shorten them for now and see what it's like. Pictures aren't anything you haven't seen before but thought I would share progress. http://i1174.photobucket.com/albums/r613/ctdavid...

Re: 280zx Inserts

FutoFab has 280ZX Illumina inserts (BZ3038) on the shelf and access to all Tokico shocks/struts that are in the US thru our wholesale distributor. Hi Dave. Are these the ones for the shortened 280zx struts? I haven't shortened them yet. Also wondering how much to shorten the struts with these inser...

280zx Inserts

I've finally located struts out of an 82 280zx that was being parted out. I want to shorten the struts. Does anyone have a part number for the inserts that are currently available? I see a lot of people mention MR2 struts but I'm not seeing year if it is a front or back insert. I want to order the i...

Re: Coilover Experience

Do you have a link to those. I can't seem to find them on the Bicknell site. What is retail on them?

Re: Coilover Experience

I'm running Bicknell Racing sleeves/perches. They're quality, sick looking and affordable. Like Keith said. Preload is your friend to stop things from rattling around... I had a set of rattlers once since I tried to slam the car on inserts that were too long (280zx). Do you have a link to those? I ...

Re: Coilover Experience

Coil overs are NOT noisy...why would that be? Any noise transmission usually comes from the OTHER solid mounts that people use. Wear out....they would wear out ( the shock that is) not different than any other shock...depends on quality...My Bilstien inserts have been in my 280ZX struts for over 32...

Coilover Experience

I'm hoping to get some feedback. I just bought a pair of 280zx struts for my 510. I'm one of those that started out with the "I need coilovers" mind set. After doing some research I'm starting to question my reasons. The only reason's I come up with for going with coilovers are adjustabili...

WTB Datsun 510 Windshield Trim

Hi

I'm missing the top trim piece for the Front windows and I'm missing the small overlap piece for the rear window that joins the two halves together on the bottom of the rear window. Hoping someone might have these pieces for sale.

Thanks

David

Thanks for checking. Still hoping to pickup some 280zx struts.

Re: WTB 280zx Struts

I have a set of s12 v6 front struts. Bolt on and you can use z32 brakes. I don't know much about the s12 struts. How are they different than the 280z struts? Is it the same lug pattern? Are there other suspension related considerations when using this? I would want the lug pattern to be the sale fo...
