  1. Hi My name is Jamal...

    I just imported a 240K to the States and I'd like to do a rear disk Brake swap for my 240K.

    Did you succeed in you rear disk brake swap?

    Please any info will be great.

    Thank You


  2. hmmm wow lots of skylines for jccs,.., i dont think ill make it there this year but my gc10 will prolly be there, i think imma have my buddy take it up there for me. i miss my kenmeri sometimes...,but ill be seeing since i sold it to one of my bestfriends...good looking 77 btw... mikey
  3. just wondering if anyone has a straight front bumper for a c110/240k coupe forsale or has any ways in getting one, chrome does not have to be perfect just looking for a straight front bumper. if you have any info email me at mikeseez@cox.net thanks mikey
  4. heres a few old pics with the watanabes on my old s13 240sx...they are 15x8.5 on 195-50 tires.
  5. hey kent when I first bought my watanabes I had a 240z with flares, back then and now the watanabe website had cars showing rim and tire size, the same section where lachlan and mat has there cars posted. I pretty much based my tire size by the cars that had the same setup as me. ill post up the wheels later today I just got them back...or if u want to email me directly ill send the pics... my email is mikeseez@cox.net thanks mikey
  6. no prob enigma i just dont like the word ricer...i like to be more traditional...when i first got my 240z gnose the first thing i bought was the watanabes...15x10 15x8.5....i had 275-50 tires at first then wouldnt fit,,,,i referenced tire sizes back then on the watanabe website and was suprised on what tire size they were using. i thought it was crazy and didnt believe it would work but then i tried it and it made stuff fit very nicely. i dont stretch tires like a fad like others...i try to use the widest tire that i can without issues...plus tires arent cheap so if i could get away with a small tire imma do it...anyway i cant wait to get my c110 wired up..its all ready for the stand alone computer...my microtech and dash display are now in so now its just time....soon the motor will purr... matt.... dude imma sell my pair of 15x8.5s watanabes for around $600 with tires if interested, its not a low offset so if you or someone would be interested in a pair let me know. its perfect for non-flared cars or the front of 240z's...i dont know what the offset is but i have pics. mikey
  7. well you'll actually be surprised that when you go to the actual rs watanabe website japan the tire size and rim combo are very common to run, I'm not trying to be a ricer I've owned my other set of watanabes since 1995, its more of a fitment for me I can't run a wide tire with the 14x9 has less than 1/4 inch from the strut, if I ran 225s ill hit. imma eventually run 205/60s theres a link here posted about watanabes and it shows the tire and rim sizes. I'm not new to stretched tires I've been doin it for years ...well anyway as soon as I get new rubber ill post the c110 with its new set combo of 15x10 rears and 14x9 fronts which fits very flush to the flares,..take care all mikey
  8. well i just bought another pair of watanabes...not sure on the offset but it fits flush to the flare on the c110....really nice fit , i need to get wider tires or atleast new ones, these old tires are leaky....right now 195-60 tires are mounted on the 14x9 watanabes....one is an old version and the other is newer style, one has smooth all around with logo stamped on the bars and other has castings with logo on the hub. mikey
  9. for what ive been told yes...but i could be wrong....but for a friend of mine who owned both the c10 and c110 he said their the same or atleast mount the same. mikey
  10. i havent had a chance to work on the front coilovers as of yet...ill be getting some 280zx struts and get them done off the car so when thier done i can just pop them in...i have tein camber plates off a 240sx(s13) that fit perfect. as soon as i get the rears all done with all the kinks out i wanna get the car shipped out to get the motor running then bring back for brakes and front suspension. i got a phone call today and a magazine wants my car to be in their issue upcoming issue....unfortunately my car is not done but they really wanna shoot the car regardless of the project....hopefully we can shoot a before and after....so i have 2 weeks from today to get the car somewhat presentable....gonna be hard since i dont have my headlights and other minor details,,,,,plus the car isnt running.....ill do my best to make the car look presentable and hopefully give the people in the US a second look at the Kenmeri c110. matt when im all done ill get in touch with you and if your interested ill try to help you on getting the perfect ride height for your car. im planning to get another set of rear coils....around 500# cuz of the angle it will be close to 250# coils.....so my 300# coils are about 177# a bit soft but i havent cranked the shock damper yet,..so maybe you might be interested in these for daily driving.
  11. any of you guys have this model....i like it ...i wanna try to get the whole collection...they have the c10, c110, r30 rsx, r32 gtr and r34 gtr my girls bro just came back from japan and sent this to me.... mikey oh yea and he also got me a couple 2000 gtr pull back toys as well
  12. im not gonna do a true 300lb rate...my setup right now to me is good...with the 40-45 degree angle my setup it is equal to 177LB which is a bit soft right now and perfect for daily driving but at the same time the dampning is still set at "0" so i can still play with the shock dampning which i can turn 12 steps. im actually over the recommended rate for the rears....according to the manual a 150LB rate is perfect for weight in the rear....im just going over because of my motor pushing close to 350whp. i wanna make sure it doesnt dip so hard. imma try what i have now and if its still to soft ill up the rate. i dont have much access for springs and shocks here in the US thats why im doing the coilover setup,,,i can get a setup that i like...just tryin to give us U.S. guys an option since its hard for us to get any parts for our cars. im keeping the 10" spring...i think once i mess with the damper it should be where i like it. thanks for the input.
  13. ok i found some reading....since the shock mounted is close to about 45 degress...because of the angle to get close to a 300LB spring setup ill need a 600LB rated coil because of the angle...i might have to play with some rates. ill check in later.. mikey
  14. well i bought a 2" stud extender to get a little more height we'll see how much more height ill get...right now im about 2 finger gap between tire and flare which is not a bad height...and have about 3.5" of shock travel which is plenty. i also havent adjusted the damper on the shock so its on the lowest setting right now..i have 12 adjustments. if everything goes well...if you run same shock with extender and 10" coils you should be happy with the results....ill let you know when i finish the mock up.... how low are you looking to go? im sure i can go higher right now if i compress the coilover more...the coils arent even compressed...if i tighten the coils more i can get more height. im pretty happy with the setup so far...once i fine tune it more it should work well...
