Pre-1996 Rear Subframe from Q45 for my 280z?

Recommended Posts

I am considering running this rear end conversion in my 280z : https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/280z/complete-r200-short-nose-r230-rear-end-conversion-z-car

 

I talked to the helpful team over there, and it seems as though my best option is to run with a rear subframe from a Q45 from 1996 or earlier... But I can't seem to find one online anywhere, and the junk yards just don't seem to have any of them sitting around.

Anybody know where I can track one down?

First why are you wanting that rear end?  I am assuming you want to put big horsepower, is that right?  If so for less money than the Techno Toy I would recommend, the Apex rear end kit as it can accept a For 8.8 IRS,  R200 from your Q45 as well as R32 Skyline & 300ZX, or R230 300ZX TT  I believe it is a better design as it eliminates mustache bar & dog leggs, and provides more adjust camber, toe, roll center, caster, etc.  If you are going big power this would be a better kit and then go with a Ford 8.8 IRS which you can get cheap on Ebay; the 8.8 IRS is better than the Q45 diff  https://www.apexengineered.com/store/p62/Rear_Suspension_Kit.html

 

 

If you have more money you can go ultimate rear suspension with their https://www.apexengineered.com/store/p24/TRACK_ATTACK_-_Complete_Rear_Kit.html  that is a better design than trying to make the stock design better as it converts to a modern double A arm dynamic, like an Indy or formula one car! and can use so many IRS diffs that can handle way more power than a Q45 diff
