Here is my 1980 ZX last summer after rebuilding the suspension. I bought it from the original owner, bone stock with original paint, perfect black interior, etc. It's an odd one as it is a base model with no power options, but has A/C. Currently it has no drive train and is getting a turbo motor swap. I've had many 280zx turbo's, but this car is by far my favorite and is a keeper.

First car my Dad bought me when I was 16, he said the reason he chose this car was because it was the only one that would do donuts. Ive poured every paycheck into it ever since and Im now 30.

I use generic coils the are in the 300 range and stiff as hell!
On the 40 tires and no rubber in the front strut assembly to be found all i can say from a little test ride ..
it is blood pissing stiff!
Given the struts are on their heaviest setting, also i use msa sway bars and adjustable end links ( one poly rubber in there)
