Coilover weld cost & location?
AlbatrossCafe posted a topic in Suspension & SteeringHey guys, I need new coilovers at all 4 corners. Regardless of the fact that I have no idea yet which ones to get, I need a few questions answered: Where did you take your coilovers + strut tube to have them welded together? (do I need a specialty shop or what?) How much did it cost to weld all 4 coilovers? (I plan on taking them the new coilovers + disassembled part) What do I need to provide to the shop to have the job done? (which OEM parts, what kind of info do I need to provide in terms of ride height, etc.)
CDL1542 posted a topic in Suspension & SteeringAlright so I've decided after taking someone elses Z for a spin this past weekend (and being thrilled with the ride quality) that I want to go coilovers. The kicker here is that I do not have the know-how or ability to section the struts or weld so I'm looking for something that I can bolt in directly if possible. The only place that I have found so far that does this is Techno Toy Tuning however (and please correct me if I'm wrong) I feel that $1950 for coilovers all around seems like a bit much even with included springs. Is there any other available bolt in ready product on the market that someone can suggest, or can someone let me know if spending the money here is worth it? I'm not looking at cutting into the car for camber plates or anything of the sort although I may be going with fender flares in the near future which is another reason why this must come first. Thanks for the help and I appreciate all responses you might have for me! -Chris
Current Coilover Options For 280Z's
Smithwicks posted a topic in Suspension & SteeringHey guys. Been a lurker for the past couple of months. Finally getting around to my first post. Come from the world of messing with 90's Volvo's so its been an interesting switch up for me as of late. Currently looking into replacing the suspension on my '76 280Z for a month or so now. Not looking to do any serious autocross or crazy stuff like that, just want to replace the stock suspension with something nice that will look good when done. Looking at the coilover options right now but a little divided on what route I want to go exactly. I've been reading up on the available options and due to there being many threads, some being very old (5 or so years). Im a little confused about the options, especially with what struts are currently available from what suppliers. I've read up a bit on strut sectioning and with the help of my roommate we should be able to accomplish the task. (Tools, welder, etc.) If I do go this option is there a good combo of strut and springs out there right now? I've also come across these: https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/280z/front-coilover-conversion-datsun-240z-260z-and-280z Have there been any negative comments on these outside they cost more than making your own coilover setup? Appreciate any help you guys can give even if its pointing me in the direction of a couple good threads. -Tom
Coilover kit suggestions, questions for the S30
mlobster posted a topic in Suspension & SteeringHello! I have searched this forum and other forums for answers, but i still have some questions about which coilover kit to go with. I am currently looking at this kit fm MSA: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/PSDC14/23-4123 Does anyone have these on their 240z?. If so, what is involved in actually installing these on the car? I would like to get a kit that is as close to "bolt on" as I can. I dont want to cut up my towers so i would have to get the EMI/ biscuit type camber plates. from looking around it seems like the kit from Beta motorsports is the way to go. Does anyone have any experience with that kit? Anyway, I would really appreciate any input you guys have if you own either of these two kits. Thanks in advance guys.
