tokico 5 way adjust struts on a 280


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Last fall I purchased a new set of 5 way adjustable struts with 1" lowering springs from tokico to install on my 77 280z. getting ready to install them this week and have a few questions. First off I'm planning on using the lower spring cups and hardware from the original struts I assume this is ok. It appears as though the lower spring cups are welded in place so i need to break the welds on the old and reweld onto the new. any advise on welding temp or feed rate? (never welded on struts before). Also any measurements on positioning the lower cups on the new struts. do I copy the originals or do i have to compensate for an inch drop? If anyone can give me any help or direct me to a post or website that already exists on this topic would be greatly appreciated. really want to have this thing up and running for the next local scca event.

You appear to be confused or you're not sharing something with us. Did you buy a complete spring over conversion kit? If not, the Tokico strut "inserts" just slip into the existing strut housing, and the lowering springs sit on the existing spring perch. No cuting or welding required.
