The part number for the sleeve I got is 214-1100. They are the threaded collars with 2 weld rings. They cost $120 for the pair.

As for what I did in the rear go back a a page or so and you will see. I used all victory 50 stuff from Japan. Woodie I would try there for some of the items you are looking for.

Ya it would be cool if we had a cross for all the hako stuff that was available from other car here in the USA.

Has anyone developed any kind of cross reference for what fits Hakos? ie: suspension components, brake pads, steering components, and so on.

i think we should develop a sticky and try to come together and compile this data!




That would be awesome as I will be Taking delivery on my 72 in June! Been trying to keep up with all the topics seeing what's what!

So I got the the car on the ground this weekend. At first I put one side together complete with wheel. Then used the jack to put it where I thought it looked best. After that with a few measurements I put the other side on and lowered that car. Once again it sat on the jack and the rocker was 3 inches off the ground. I do not have a pic of that and now wish I did. So I made a call to see where other people had there car at. I got 5 inches on the rocker from 2 people. So up the car went and made some adjustments got the car back on the ground. Here are some in garage shots and one of a completed strut.

The car sits at 4.5 inches to the bottom of the rocker flange. I tried moving the camber plates in to get more camber but they need to be modified a little to get more movement. So the whole front came back apart. I also at this height the coil over adjustment for the front is about 1 inch from the top. So I am going to order some longer springs in a 5k spring rate. After those and my bump spacer come in the car will be puts back together. Then the out side shots will come.

So I got my bump steer spacers done.
Image
Image

They are a very tight fit onto the knuckle. I have not tested them onto the struts yet. I need to cut the backing plate a little to make room. I have made four extra sets and can make another 5 sets if needed. I only got enough screws for the 10 sets. Once I make sure they fit good I will be making a sale thread.

So today was a good day. got the brakes bleed this week and today took the car out for a drive. Everything worked well. Had a little smoke from oil on the exhaust but other that that no problems. This is the first time in 4 years that I have driven this car. I have to tell you it was a good time. So here is my best before and after shots of the car. From stock to dropped.

I could make tons of excuess about why it never got out in the past 4 years. I was starting to be that guy that you see with the car under tons of stuff in his garage. You all know that guy i am talking about. I have to admit thou that eric buying his red car and josh's videos have made me get this car back on the road. So I am very thankfull for that.

I'm not criticizing...

I know where you're coming from... I bought a first gen 72 Honda Civic ex-SCCA race car once
Had it for about 10years, I moved it to 4 different houses over the years (we were renting and moving around a fair amount)

Rebuilt the high comp race engine 3 times, and it ran for a total of 1hour in those 10years
It was the thorn in my side ...

I sold it last summer to an ex-Navy guy in San Diego who made it a father/son project and now the little pumpkin is running again...



Time & money, right?

Right? Tell me about it! I've been selling off projects, trying to thin the herd, and it's depressing to see that I've owned a car three years and driven it a total of 1800 miles in that period... :( Keep driving and enjoying your Skyline, you've put in a lot of hard work!

Hey Derux

when you swopped out your rear suspension what bushes (isolators) were on the rear subframe where it mounts to the rear floor. Im rebuilding mine and cant remember what bushes were used for the body contact areas.

I used the whiteline poly bushes and they just bolted straight to the body. I did not use the stock rubber\washer combo one.

do you mean the bushes that inserted into the subframe or an islolator between the subframe and body?

I think what he means is something like this:

Where the poly bush and crushtube just butt up against the body without anything in between?

I used the same style bushings for my crossmember and mounted them the same as Kev's moustache bar. The only difference is the crossmember uses a cupped washer on the bottom. So when I mounted my crossmember it went

Body, top bushing, member, bottom bushing, crush tube, stock cupped washer, flat washer , spring washer and nut.

here is a shot of my bushings. You can see how one washer has a indent in it for the cone washer. (bottom bushing)
Image

Then in this shot you can see the two large cone shaped washers I used
