If you are talking about the arms. I used stock rubber bushings on one and the V50 adjustable one on the other. I can get you the nissan part number for the stock bushings later.

Rolled the car out this weekend to wash it so I can put the car cover on it for the winter. It is inside so it is really to keep the dust and stuff off.

These are before and after for the rear end lowering. Right now it is as low as it can be in the rear. I am working on getting the parts I want to lower the front. After it is lowered I will decide my ride height.

Really want to sell the R31 struts. The R34 gtr brakes on them are way more then the hako needs.

So with eric getting all this work done on his car and gossip of a norcal meet coming up. I told the wife I would be in the garage if she needs me. I need to make the front of the car mathc the rear. So up on the jack she goes. I have not looked at the front end of this car for about 4 years and didn't pay much attention when i did. So i was suprised to see these calipers when I took the wheel off
Image

I dont think these are stock. So if anyone can help me with info on them. That would be great.

I got both front struts off. Spring removed and shocks out. I am going to shorten the struts to house my new shocks
Image

I am also adding coil oves. So more updates to come..

What does the stamping say on the caliper body?

Derux,

I just changed the cartridges on my Hako. I replaced them with Tokico Illuminas BZ3038 five way. Hope that helps.

Eric: the only thing on the calipers is a M looking symbol and a 45. It also says SUMITOMO. I looked at them closer and I don't think a wider rotor will fit. So the only thing I can think of is they are some rear caliper put on the front.

NorCal510 I got some shocks from the big brake kit I have. I am going to use the shocks and springs from that kit for the hako and buy new stuff for them to put on the DR.

Sound like the stock calipers on the 240Z which might also be the stock calipers on the Hako

I'll check my Z and confirm

The Z and the Hako came with solid rotors up front from
The factory...

I just wasn't excepting to see a solid caliper as a stock caliper. I thought they would be a slider type caliper. Like most other cars.

That looks like the stock caliper...twin opposing pistons and a tiny little square shaped pad (about the size of the palm of your hand)?

So this is the first set of struts that I have ever shortened. I did have to go ask the OG's about how to figure out the exact amount that you need to remove to fit your new shorter shock. So I was told to install my new shock in the tube and then put the nut on.
Image
Then you push the shock body till it hits the bottom of the strut and measure. Then pull it up untill it hits the nut and measure again. You will then have the correct amount you must remove. I put tape on the shaft of the shock and marked lines.
Image

I then made my first cut 2 inches in from the top of the tube.
Image

I then removed the difference I got from the push/pull method and all the cutting was done.
Image

I have to take out about 1.5 inches...before and after..
Image
Image

Next I fixtured the tubes into a piece of angle to keep them straight and aligned.
Image

After that lets get welding. (I am not the welder)
Image

After the tubes are welded I had to put on my new coil over sleeves.
Image
Image
Image

The sleeves I use have a nice steel ring pressed into them so I don't have to use a piece of plate like other kits. So here is every thing all done.
Image
Image
Image

Now I need to get a little paint on them and get my camber plates settled. I will also be making some 1 inch bump spacers.
