Not really...You live where I'd love to live...I live in Prosperity,SC...I'll keep looking here I guess. I might try an experiment on the 240-260-280 that the PO installed on the right and see if I can get rid of that pos camber. If I can I'll just get another one for the left and have at least bigger brakes from this planet...Thanks

The 240-260-280Z struts do not work well on a 510. The 280ZX Struts are a good replacement for bigger brakes.

I have stock 510 strut tube assemblies if you decide to go that route. I am in Maryland and can ship.

So many 510's have had the front struts replaced with 280ZX or 200SX etc..........do you need a 510 strut or could it be one of the others? If 510, what year? There were 3 different tube lengths.............68-69, 70-72 & 73.

I think I posted on another of your threads...........the 240-260-280Z struts have the INCORRECT camber angle for a 510............they do NOT work well on the street, although some SCCA guys used the Z struts back in the day to have that camber angle!

From the top of the casting to top of the tube without nut is 16"

So my measurement was not 16inches. We have not established WHICH strut & brake combo you have...........are you sure you need a stock 510 strut with the solid rotor (not vented) AND the goofy 510 brake caliper?

Yes, it has the solid rotor and the goofy caliper combo. As soon as I can get some pics loaded you guys can tell me what Iv'e got on the right. I think it's 240Z. If I could find a pair of ZX struts at a halfway reasonable price I would definitely go that way but there aren't any in the local junkyards and the ones on ebay are outrageous. I guess I'll just be patient and wait 'till I can find some. Thanks

Did you "stretch" a tape measure around the spring perch to measure?? That might explain my measurement of 15-1/2 vs yours at 16.......?? I should have each of the three variants, just need to make sure which one.

PM'd you!
