Hello, 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,
So i've been trying to find replacement inner tie rods for my 72 240z. It looks like nissan discontinued making them? There is also seem to be an issue with wrong inner tie rods from the regular autoparts (autozone, oreilly, rockyautoparts)? Where did you guys get your replacement inner tie rods? I've read someone rebuilding their tie rods; re-tightening, re-grease them, install new boots. Anybody else do this? Did it work?
Is anyone successfully running an AZC drop/shortened steering knuckle with the tie rod end sitting inside a wheel < 17" diameter, or must a person choose a backspacing to keep the rod end outside of the rim?

I'm hoping a 16" wheel will have enough clearance to sit the knuckle inside the wheel rather than moving the wheel outward. Is there any issue with do
So I am well aware of the fact that the Inner Tie rods for the 240/260/280 are NLA from almost all sources, but I am wondering if somebody has found a solution for a worn out inner tie rod! Seems crazy that either everyone has perfect tie rods, or is living with crap ones. I've had a couple of ideas, but none of them are easy/require lots of machining. Looking for a good solution!
