  1. I’m in the process of doing the exact opposite of what you are doing. Send me a pm. I’m in central Florida.
  2. Hello James, Welcome to the Forum. Just removed my 280 bumpers. Are there any differences on the brackets required? My understanding is the 240 bumper will bolt directly on. If that’s the case do you manufacture the brackets as well. Thanks
  3. I’m looking for the rubber shift boot trim ring. Any chance you have one?

  6. Yes Sir that’s the one I was speaking of earlier. Do you have a manufacture preference on ball joints etc. The rear suspension had a lot of OEM parts still available. Not so much for the front from what I’ve seen.
  7. Good news...Thanks for clarifying that for me. My production date is 1/78. Not sure why some suppliers list 78 as being different.
  8. Like to get some clarification if I can Please. After looking through many posts that might provide an answer for me. Is the 78 model steering rack different from the 77 and older 280z racks. I’ve checked the Nissan parts listing and can’t find any difference other than the 240 p/n listings. What I’ve found is when I search for a replacement for the 1978 it’s either not available or on back order. The only site that show a listing is Buy Auto Parts and it’s back ordered. My manufacture date is 1/77. Can any one clear this up for me. Appreciate the help.
  9. Silvermine sells the came axle I installed. Spoke with them at length and my binding seemed to be caused by the axle being well below horizontal. Jacking the control arm towards horizontal relieved the binding. Continuing on with rear brake install and will be able to check everything at ride height.
  10. Ryan, speaking of modifying the bracket, The diameter seems ok the thickness of the bracket seems to be the issue I’m having. Is this what you were referring to? I have a 78 S30. Looks like I need to grind off about 1/16” where the clip will install correctly. Also the hardware kit for the 240sx caliper has two aluminum “ horseshoe clips”. Is that a shim that’s needed? john
  11. I don’t understand why these are being marketed by different sources. Selling the weld on plates and being told to use the 300zxt axles. I now realize they don’t fit properly. I used the Track Automotive axles which I guess I will try to return. Silvermine offers the axles but we’re more expensive.
  12. Need some help troubleshooting a problem with the cv axel installation. Bought the adapters from Silvermine an had the flanges welded to the adapters. This was the final piece to rebuilding the rear suspension. I understand there is a left and right 300zxt axle which I ordered. During the install the shafts were extremely tight and difficult to install. At first I thought they were not seated all the way but that was not the case. I did verify that the axles did have compression but still very difficult to put into position. The axle hubs spin easily until t he shafts are installed. After the shafts are installed it seems like they are binding due to the pressure between the axle and the diff. Double checked the cv axle p/n’s and they are correct. Can anyone shed some light on this? So close to being done with this part of the build. Thanks for the help everyone has given so far.
  13. Installed the mustache bar without the offset washers. Seems to line up well.
  14. Thanks, What do you think about the slanted off set washers that come in the kit. I was told by Whitehead they are used for leveling. OEM doesn’t require them. Just wanted a bar to bolt on and put my rebuilt suspension back together. The other concern is once it’s installed it’s mine.
