Charlie did the rear befor I bought it. He took the spring pocket cut it out welded. In a round piece of steel welded a piece of dom in the center then attached a coil over sleeve to the dom with a 2.5 8inch spring.

yes.
I think 2.5 weight jacks would work out well they would be easier to adjust

Indeed. I think http://www.dpracing.co sells some that people seem to be please with. I've got a set sitting around, but haven't installed them yet.

well i have driven it around a few times. somthing just is not right. I started feeling it lean out under boost then it started sputtering under boost. so i pulled the tank and found metal shavings and what would apear to be flaking spray paint .
So i am assuming the metal shavings are from when the po modded the tank for the 300zx pump. I noticed the shaving's where on the outside of the filter sock and not on the inside. and i didn't find any shaving's in the pump. All the shavings where in the 300zx baffiling right under the sock. the debri was about the size of a quarter when you scooped it all together. I am wondering if it was blocking the sock and starving the car for fuel. we will ! but i dought that is the problem. guess i will need to buy a wide band

phil came over and fix my harness. He rock's

My buddy kyle sold me a aeromotive 340 with a z31 pump stand and his custom mounting bracket. It just so happened he had bought a bunch of fuel pumps so he could design a pump stand for z31's that could hold 2 or 3 fuel pump's in the stock tank.

here is how ron had my old tank set up the pump mounted to the baffle

I also have the Walbro 255 pump. and it is very noisy, I almost wish it would die, so that I could replace it.

Me too, very noisy, even in tank, and I've been putting up with it for nearly 40k miles! How does this pump perform compared to the Walbro 255? There's also deutchworks (sp) that is reportedly quieter than the walbro.
