Hello Hybrid Z

 

I own an 83' 280zx with a 2jz vvti, its going through a restoration now, I have most parts for the restoration, just missing on suspensions and wheels and it would be done.

 

I was going to go with the techno toy tuning front coil kit and s13 for the rear, but a friend of mine, told me about accuair, and I kinda kept thinking about them, they looked cool and the idea grew on me. I contacted accuair and they said they don't have a kit for a 280zx just 300zx (90's) and s14.

 

I saw two people with 280zx accuairs, but unfortunately they didn't reply to me when I asked them how they did it, so I thought I would get help from here, maybe someone knows who did this build or not. 

 

I'm wondering if I get s14 kit the rear would be bolt on, just worried about the front  :unsure:, and I dont know if this would be of relevance but i'll go with watanabe F 16 x 8.5 -5 R 16 x 9.0 -13 .

 

I also thought of going through the the techno toy suspensions and s13/14 then change the springs to bags maybe..?

 

Thank you

I don't know if he's a member here. I think he frequents Ratsun, but his name is Bruce Laureto. He's fairly active on the 280zx drivers. Facebook group, if you do the social media thing.

 

His 280zx is on bags, with flares. I imagine it's probably one of the cars you mentioned, though.

 

Maybe give facebook a try.

 

Best of luck, Mate.

Haha yeah Bruce was one of the 280zx's that I saw. I'll look at that facebook group and probably ratsun.

 

Thanks again

By the looks of it, the Accuair kits are standard coilovers that replace the coil spring with an airbag, so converting the S chassis parts to fit your ZX would be the same process as this writeup I did years ago: http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/94002-how-to-install-s13-coilovers-on-280zx-and-poly-bushings/

 

If I'm not mistaken, the S14 fronts should be the same as S13, but the S14 rears are longer than S13, and if I recall correct, use larger diameter bolt at the bottom (solved with a bushing/sleeve). Don't take my work for it though.
