Tie Rod Help Needed!!!
brd64020 posted a topic in S130 Series - 280ZXHello, I have a 1983 280zx that is going to be running a custom front suspension setup with 1996 240sx s14 steering knuckles, s14 coilovers, 350z brake rotors, 300zx aluminum brake calipers. However, the question I have and can't seem to truly find a solid answer to is will 240sx inner tie rods bolt up to the 280zx steering rack (I know that s13 and s14 tie rods are different). Also, the reason for needing different tie rods is due to the stock ones coming no where near close to reaching the steering knuckle. Ideally I would like to run a set of s14 aftermarket tie rods, inner and outer, or some combo that will result in me having the ability to run heim joints for more steering angle. What I have found has me to believe that both 280zx's and an s14's (240sx) run tie rods that are M14x1.5. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
1982 280zx Strut Assembly Compatibility
Heathhh posted a topic in S130 Series - 280ZXI have a 1982 280zx 2+2 N/A and need to know whether or not my front strut assemblies are model specific or production date specific. My production date on my car is ( 1/82 ). When I had called the junkyard in order to find a new strut tower assembly since mine has a bent wheel hub affecting the camber, he asked me the production date of the vehicle to verify if his strut assembly would fit my car. I have had only one scrap yard ask me for this additional information out of the many that I called looking for the part. So that brought up a red flag for me. From my prior knowledge, I thought everything in the front end of the vehicle was compatible for all S130 years. So if anyone can shine light on my situation, that would be great. If I am confusing anyone, here is a parts diagram of the strut assembly. I am looking for part number: 53402k as pictured below. Or 53403k since I am looking for the LH passenger front assembly. Or even 54308k since that looks like the wheel hub and strut container tower without the spring etc. Thank you.
