  1. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    This isnt something thats really marketable btw, just an idea people can use for themselves.... I may have the 1/4 inch strut adapter shims laser cut and sold for $60 for the 4 of them to make it easier for people to do this, but this is honestly something anyone with a welder can do themselves. Monday I'll go grab some 1/4 inch plate steel and bolt it all together, and show you guys what's needed to make the dodge neon coilover bolt to the mustang spindle. Once I have wheels and tires, which I can't afford at the moment, I'll be bolting this up to the front of my datsun and posting pics. And videos. And later down the road I'll have my rear set up designed and built. The rear will require me to design a custom knuckle with neon coilover mounts and be set up for the 2015 mustang irs hubs while using 2014 mustang brakes (so braking stays matched to the 2014 fronts). So for a few months I'll have 5 lug front set up with 4 lug rears untill I have the rear to bolt in.
  2. Got 315's to fit my set up

    I love that. Definately an inspiration.
  3. Options for hub-centric front hubs

    Mustang spindles. That's what I'm using. Same 5x114.3 wheel pattern. But will need modded 2004 srt4 coilovers and a mustang ball joint and some techno toy tuning outer tie rods to work. Wheel flange is spot on and steering geometry remains factory. Brake options get super cheap too. 13.2 inch brakes for $150, Or 14 inch brembos monsters for $96 per caliper and $45 per rotor.... Can still use 11.5 inch brakes and a 16 inch wheel is that's your thing too.
  4. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    Parts breakdown. 2004 dodge neon srt4 coilovers. --- I bought mine for $180 2014 mustang spindles ---- $100 a pair, all day. 2014 mustang brakes.--- $100 to $300 a set, easily found. Mine were $150... What's needed to make them all work together is two 1/4 plates with 3 holes each and a welder per spindle. And a hybrid 240z lower control arm that uses a mustang ball joint. In my case I'm just welding a mustang control arm stub to the 240z one.
  5. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    Been busy. Anyways, did a ton of measuring. First off, steering knuckle to ball joint distance is the same. So geometry remains the same in that regards. Secondly, the tie rod ends have the same taper BUT the mustang ones are bigger and stronger. The solution is to use techno toy tuning 5/8 adjustable outer tie rods. The mustang spindle can be drilled for 5/8 with the provided drill bit. Or do what I'm planning on doing, and fab up the mustang inner tie rod together with the datsun inner, and use mustang outer tie rods, and not drill the spindles. The other all important question is wheel flange to ball joint dimensions, and they are spot on. My original thought was they were kicked out about an inch. I was wrong. You will need to use zero offset wheels with this setup. Or negative if you want to run really wide track. You can use 11.5 inch brakes and run 16 inch wheels. Or be like me, and use 13.2 inch brakes with 17 inch wheels. The strut mounts don't line up, but are 1/2 wider than the mustang spindle. The solution I have come up with is to use 1/4 inch plates to adapter the mounting pattern to the mustang spindle bolt locations. Two plates per strut. All in all my cost for this has been less than the cost of a pair of 5 lug hubs. So yeah, this is a no brainer when it comes to choice for me.
  6. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    For example... the cheapest coilover setup is 900 bucks and requires welding... or you can use bolt struts from a different platform... I'm trying to use the super 8.8 off a 2015 mustang... bolt on factory brakes on the rear, hubs etc... 40 bucks for a hub sure beats 800 for stub axles and then another 600 for companion flanges. The s30 platform market is saturated, very true. But it's saturated with severely overpriced junk.
  7. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    True, I'm just trying to offer the same thing, but for the guys with big hp who don't want to spend the current market prices for it...
  8. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    I'm not messing with stub axles. Gets too expensive fast... I can build a setup with 14 inch brembos up front and 800 hp axles for WAY less than what it currently costs to do the rear conversion kit from any number of places... The Nissan stuff is severely overpriced.
  9. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    Oh. Yeah, I don't think a spindle and ball joint designed for a 3,500 lb car is going to be the weak link in a 2,500 lb v8 datsun...
  10. 2014 mustang spindle conversion

    Yeah, that's exactly what I'm thinking. A small adapter with 5 holes... 4 for the control arm, and one for the 2014 mustang ball joint. Not looking to push the ball joint out ... that would create camber. I plan on bolting a 2014 mustang spindle on with a 2004 Subaru coil over strut in the exact 240z factory locations. I just have a feeling that the wheel mounting surface on a 2014 mustang is out farther from the ball joint pivot point than it is on a 240z. I know this because mustangs use a 35mm or 42mm positive offset wheel... Factory steering on any car always places the center of steering directly in the middle of a tire... ALWAYS. Either with a positive offset wheel or by being very shallow on the spindle like the 240z is. I have one question. Why the Chrysler ball joint? What suspension bolts up to it?
  11. After looking everything over and doing some digging I came to the conclusion that using 65 mustang hubs on 240z spindles is not a cost effective solution for big brakes. I am now looking into a ball joint adapter that bolts to the control arm of the 204z and uses press in 2014 mustang ball joints. I intend to use this in conjunction with 2004 Subaru wrx coil over struts to allow the use of 5 lug 2014 mustang hubs and brakes. Which are 5x114.3 The intent is to have the outer wheel mount flange be pushed out roughly 35mm.... effectively converting our cars from a "zero offset" wheel to a "plus 35mm" wheel... aka just like the 300z and the 240sx, Toyota supra etc... It's a front steer, rear caliper spindle just like the stock 240z, once I know what the bump steer geometry will be I will have a clearer picture of things. Someone could use a widebody or flared setup if they chose to run a zero offset wheel, or use cheap and readily available 350z wheels and have stock track width. Let me know if anyone has any input on this. Good idea, bad, etc...
  12. Invincible extremes 240z chevy v8 350 pro-touring build

    Used a cj7 master cylinder to complete the 4 speed swap with a $99 hydraulic throwout bearing. Worked well actually and bolts right in to our 240z cars. Had to extend the shift linkages and make a custom shift plate to locate the shifter farther back but it all works great now. The phantom grip limited slip actually works pretty decent. Not the best but it beats having an open diff. The open diff really sucked on the few days I drove it.
  13. Invincible extremes 240z chevy v8 350 pro-touring build

    Completed the 4 speed conversion and took it out for a spin. Absolutely love it. Wishing I had more traction, but I can't risk breaking the stock stub axles.
  14. Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

    Yeah, except I'm not a fan of q45 or z32 parts, their strength or their pricing... I like the pricing of their backing plates front mount and mustache bar, in theory someone could just order those and the axle conversion they sell and get away with it on the cheap... except they'd be stuck building a strut. So more or less you're stuck paying the full asking price of the kit, which btw isn't cheap. And still need to source the short nose r200, and axles and brakes. I don't know know man, it just doesn't sit well with me. I like the idea that someone could buy some backing plates, a diff mount, and custom length axles and some cheap $250 coilover struts and be on the road with a setup that can handle 800hp...
  15. ANOTHER Datsun Z/LS3/T56 Swap Thread

    Yeah, turbo skyline and Silvia guys abuse those r200 diffs all day, should be ok, just don't get greedy with the power.
