Drive shaft shop CV conversion doesn't fit!

Recommended Posts

I have come to realize that DSS stands for Drive Shit Shop not Drive Shaft Shop.  I purchased their full bolt on axle kit and stub axles rated to 800 hp.  Absolutely none of their "bolt on" product bolts on my Z.  The adapter to diff stub axle is designed wrong and the hardware they sent will never fit....... After 3 weeks of doing my own research and sourcing my own hardware I finally came up with a solution to make the adpter work and fit albeit with ZERO input or help from DSS.    Tonight, I went to test fit the new OEM bearings on the new wheel stub axles from DSS and they slop all around!   The bearing surface on their stub axles measures 30mm and my stock stubs are 32mm.  I am so freakin pissed right now!  My car is totally torn down and nothing DSS sent me fits or is compatible with my 240Z.      DSS part numbers are DAR-1 and DAR-WHEEL......... DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP!   The only thing bolt on about it is that it bolts to itself beautifully.  To bad it just won't bolt into a Z as advertised and the tech support doesn't know jack squat about Datsuns or its own product to help.    Now I get the joy of trying to get my money back..... Oh joy!  Im warning the Z community to buyer beware.  This has been a terrible experience.    Jim

i have this same problem, i cant figure out how you are supposed to mount the 930 cv adapter onto the differential side stubs, there is no way to tighten the nuts.  my project is on backburner so i havent spent much effort on trying to sort this out

how did you end up doing it? pics would be great!

New hardware from Carr McMaster. I'm using hardened 3/8-16 bolts with lock material on the threads and thin grade 8 nuts on the back side of the flange.  The hardware they supply will never work..... the stuff I sourced will hold up fine and the adapter is machined to hub centric around the diff stub axle so shear won't be a problem  

Make sure your bearing surface is 32mm and not 30 on your wheel stub axles. DSS is under the impression there are two sizes for the s30 and they sent me the smaller.  I've been building Z's for 30 years and that's news to me..... but I'm giving them a chance to make it right.  Jim
