  1. I tried this yesterday using brute force and some of the fins that lock the cap unto the wheel broke ?
  2. Hi everyone, i finally completed the suspension upgrade for my Z! Thank you to everyone who gave me advice and tips on the install. Here’s a photo of the Z with 205/60/15. Is there a trick to installing the Konig hubcaps on the front? Id like to add the BRE spoiler and Air Dam. Does the Official BRE spoiler for better than the MSA spoiler with two bolts? Do you guys have a recommendation on where to get the Air Dam with Brake Ducts?
  3. Thank you Zed Head. I’ll be working on it this weekend. I’ll keep you guys up to date.
  4. I found the KYB piston nut laying on the garage floor. I ended up reusing the old piston nut (don't my mistake). Since there is a load on the vehicle, do you guys think i'd be able to unscrew and replace the piston nut without putting the Z on jack stands?
  5. Thank you for the replies. I used a KYB Excel-G shock. I spoke to technical support and they said the shock strut is made of a much harder material than the Nylock nut so hopefully it's just the nut that is stripped.
  6. It took me nearly two weeks but I’m finally finished with the suspension on the Z! I believed I stripped the nut holding in the strut (the one in the middle). It just keeps spinning and it won’t tighten. Is it possible to remove this nut with the car’s weight on it or do I have to remove the whole strut tower again?
  7. I might just install it without it. It would just lower the rear by half an inch.
  8. I just called Nissan Parts Deal and they don’t have it in stock. Thank you though!
  9. That is exactly that piece you linked that I'm after. Where do you think I can get a big o-ring from? It's roughly .70 inches in height.
  10. I hit a snag today. The rear strut upper spacers disintegrated when I pulled them out. The stores online don't carry them anymore except for one store but they are out of stock for a month. Can I put the rear suspension together without using the spacer?
  11. Thank you Dave! I watched 4-6 different videos and could briefly see it. This definitely is what I needed. Thanks again!
  12. Hi everyone, I'm nearly done with my front suspension. I was able to replace the tie rod ends today. I completely forgot to take photos before I uninstalled everything and I'm stumped. Can you guys please let me know if I have the orientation for the ball joint and tie rod end correct? Thank you guys!
  13. Hi everyone, still working on the the suspension. The rear strut upper spacers are destroyed and I don’t have them on order. Are these necessary or can you do without them?
  14. I’m having a bit trouble removing my steering rack. I’ve already removed the 4 bolts holding it in and the disconnected the tie rod ends. It’s only stuck on the steering column. Are there bolts holding the steering column to the steering rack? What is a good way to remove the tie rod ends from the steering rack?
