Looks like a z31 xmember and arms. I don't recall z31 na cvs looking like that but I haven't seen em in a while. Z31 has the diff on top and a sway bar like that though. And those shock mounts.

I know you didn't do it, but what did all that get the PO? Rear discs the hard way? It screams "hack!"

I'm sorry; some people shouldn't wrench on cars. The PO of your car is one such person.

Dang!, I know enough to know there are much better/effective ways to converting to discs, hopefully you'll find a replacement rear suspension soon if that one is not salvageable :-)

Yea it's pretty terrible! I was going to start to unbolt the subframe to hopefully start sandblasting the whole car and I knew something wasn't right. Well, I knew something was wrong from the beginning when I saw how the PO mounted the rear diff through the spare tire well. I realized that subframe looked a bit different from the other 510 subframes I saw...

Yea hope I can find a 510 subframe and go from there. Why couldn't the PO just throw some 240sx or maxima rear discs on it. So much easier lol

You need to make up a nice list, then go visit Qwik510 in MD. Bring a truck, and some cash.

You could also try contacting Todd Walrich: http://www.wolfcreekracing.com/ He is a little more local to you and may have what you need or know someone local that does.
