  1. Is it the same for a J series motor? That's what motor the picture referenced... Shows a different part number for the L series...
  2. Seems like the coil spring rate would be the difference.... I did find this .... If load capacity was an issue I could replace the spring in the coilover with one of those.... or just add a helper bags with the coilover... I did want to go with a full air suspension but decided to just do coilovers... less to go wrong...
  3. Not sure, but I'm not too worried about that right now.... this only for the front.... I'll never really be loading it up like wayno.... A dump run or home depot is about it.... I am after ride quality vs hauling ability..
  4. I think I'm good.... I made , hopefully, an educated guess and bought my stuff today.... trying to get it delivered before more shutdowns .... thanks.... And the truck is looking sick... can't wait to see you roast those tires.....
  5. Well I said screw it and just placed and order through jegs..... I went with bushings in the coilover mounts and 7" 400lb springs... Wrenches ended up being free due to $20 promo code.... I guess we will see if they get delivered... I'm sure I'll have to sanitize the box before the wife let's me bring it in the house..... Thanks to demo and stroffgren for your input.....
  6. Ok so this a standard 5 pin relay.... 85 - BR ( black red stripe) 86 - GL ( green blue stripe) 87 - RW ( red white stripe) 87a - RB ( red black stripe) 30- B ( black) x2 The black is the ground supply... with the relay at rest this connects 30 and 87a to supply ground to the low beams.... When headlights are turned the GL wire supplies power to the relay... BR is the high beam switch(neg) .... when this is turned on it removes ground from the low beam and switches it to the high beam... (switches the 87a to 87)
  7. If it looks the same and you have all those colors then I'll try to draw a diagram for you to explain it.... give me minute....
  8. Just though about a story.... there was old railroad bridge that was under construction for a while.... you could definitely get air ... the road went up and then leveled out on the bridge so you had no idea if the bridge was there or not till you Crest the road.... well they didnt take the signs down after it was fixed.... my dad in an old boat of a car floored it and told his brother fuck it we are going to dukes of hazzard this shit.... My dad knew the bridge was there... his brother did not... que needed to change underwear.....
  9. I have one spot after I pickup my son, it has a steep drop down the road.... fast enough you could definitely get air and in trouble.... I tried to scare him once and there was a cop at the bottom of the hill.... I dont go fast I just dont slow down so you get that rollercoaster drop feeling ....
  10. So do you not like the qa1 stuff or are you just saying there are other options?
  11. So what your saying I shouldnt be jumping my datsun... ok...
  12. I'm just wondering about the shipping company's... Or If it's even worth trying right now.... Case on the Corona virus are getting closer to home.... I'm still thinking about just using all the qa1 stuff... pretty sure I know what I want and as you said I can get them from jegs so maybe....
  13. Looks like some good info there... problem is the more I read the more confused I get.... I should just stick to blindly spending money and hope for the best.... not really.... this is a bit more money to spend.... Side not eibach is closed due to the virus... no orders will be shipped till lockdown gets lifted in California.... Virus might be putting this on hold for me.... just gives me more time to find and order the right stuff instead of rushing my purchases.....
  14. I do have the lower bump stops in my frame so I know I won't bottom out the coilover..... What about when you jack the vehicle up? If your hanging from the coilover is that ok? Or should I have some sort of limiting strap?
  15. I know very little about all this.... I'm looking at all their stuff now....
  16. I will see what's available ... What about spring rate in general? Front was recommended about 400-450... I saw another build same setup running 450 up front and only 250 in the rear.... this was a d21, so i was thinking maybe only 400 for the front.....
  17. I have been reading the debate between the bushing or the bearing.... seem like bushings are what I want for a daily driver... I'm thinking the high travel spring is what I want based on some other builds and stuff I read... plus the other spring isnt offered in 7 inches.... 7 was the recommended spring height from qa1.... And I'll probably skip the thrust washers and just get the wrenches.....
  18. So out of boredom I was looking at the 510 wiring.... seems like from 72 on shows the same wiring .... 6 wires into the relay..... the earlier ones seem to have 2 relays..... I could probably figure it out if i had both in my hands.... If your wiring is like the schematic in the picture above with the 6 wires I can give you the info to convert it to a standard 5pin bosch relay....

    So far we are ok up here.... We stocked up a little extra with neccessary supplies.... Kid is out of school till April 6th, luckily my mother in law lives on the other side of our duplex and the wife is down to half days.... I'm still working for now... only a 6 man machine shop so not too bad...

    I have thought about this too... Maybe on line orders aren't a good idea right now.....

    I know I'm trying to atleast order my front coilovers before we go into lockdown up here.... seems like we are getting close to a "shelter in place order"
  22. Hey mrbigtanker ... can you share some of your coilover information with me.... Curious what your using... Spring height and rate....
  23. And last what's the difference in these springs.... I can get both In what ever spring rate i want.... recommended is 400-450 But the high travel is the only one i can get at 7 inches.... which is recommended for the coilover I want...
  24. Would this be good to purchase ? Is it only really needed if constantly raising and lower, which I won't be doing.... set it and forget it. . But I need the wrenches.... these are 40 and just the wrenches are 25 so I might just get them regardless...
  25. Well I mine as well start this line of questions.... These are the coilovers I'm looking at... they have a non adjustable style and these are only a few dollars more.... Not really much of a question there.... But there are 2 different mounts... Bearing Or bushing Same price but what's the difference, what would be better....
