Re: what to do with stock struts

Maybe also check if any of the strut insulators are the offset version. Don't think they ever came stock on 510 struts, but they may have been retrofitted, and were a stealthy and cheap way to get some negative camber. As I recall you could get back to close to zero or slightly negative using those ...

Re: what to do with stock struts

T3 just issued a new offer for donor struts. Unfortunately, stock 510 struts aren't on the list, but 280ZX are. That's an impressive pile 'o struts. Stock 510 rotors are NLA. Maybe cull the herd for salvageable rotors? You could corner the market.

Re: Rear Quickor sway bar issue

So, I have been down this path before with my Quickor rear bar. 1st of all, it's a 7/8" bar so that gives the correct roll stiffness to offset the longer arms vs. the more common 3/4" 510 bars. It works as good or better than any of the shorter arm 3/4" bars, plus it's 3 or 4 position adjustable, pl...

Re: Diff to crossmember torque specs

FYI Installing the long diff-to-crossmember bolts from the bottom makes it possible to remove the diff from the car without having to drop the crossmember. They look to be installed from the top in your original post.

Re: 71 Pumpkin Pie Build Unflared SR20

New vto installed. Over inch clearance to wheelwell on rear and about 3/16 to control arm.. I think with a modified arm 225s will fit.. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ixxnxfates05wf3/IMG_20190305_150758_419.jpg?dl=1 That's just beautiful! Looks like Sahara gold. One of my favorite 510 colors.

There's also several of John Buffum's blue Ford Escort which could very well be the same car he used to compete in the 2.5 Trans Am.

Some SCCA Pro Rally action in the desert.

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

I second the kudos for restoring the c-pillar vents. Shaving those is an abomination to 510-dom. Not only do I think they look better with the vents, the functionality is actually pretty remarkable. I've survived many hundreds of miles cruising I-5 to Shasta and back in the heat of a central valley ...

Re: Front Strut Comparison PL510, A510, 280ZX, S110 200SX

FWIW, I measured some S12 200SX struts and put it in the same format as Byron's measurements to compare with his PL510 and 280ZX measurements. These were '85 200SX Turbo struts with 4-bolt hubs. Vented rotors are within a few mm of 280ZX size. Brake calipers are similar to 280ZX but pad is slightly ...
