coilover sleeve kit

Post by guzzirik » 12 Jan 2019 15:42

Is there a coilover sleeve kit for 280ZX strut tubes with 2.5" springs that comes with cap and bearings for use with camber plates?

its just a generic set of race parts-
sleeves with nuts - then top hats- and with or without torrington bearings- depending on where your at i have at least a few extras here

rethinking, the bearings will come with the camber plates. So I need two sleeves, 5" minimum, two perches, two hats and two lock nuts? I can make my own rings to weld to the strut tubes. Have you used any of the generic camber plates and if so which ones.

i have a 510 coming in next week that i think has BC coilovers on it- i may change to DP offset ones but wont know till car arrives-

only used tilton (way back) then DP or GC never used offshore and i try to avoid as much as possible- DP sells a coilover sleeve kit and coleman racing will have a la carte parts -
i cant remember if 280zx has the same size tube as a 280z or 240z. if the 280 then you need the larger 2.08 sleeves which are not a common race car part- then has to be specialty place like dp or gc or the many knockoffs

Yeah, that what I figured. Turns out, judging by pics of calipers I found, the right side mystery strut is from a late '70's 210 and it's 2" also. So, I ordered a set of 2.08 ID tubes and 2.5 ID perches and caps...
