    How much damping oil for 280zx stock strut shock?

    Also now my gland nut won't thread down all the way. I'm guessing it's suppose to be at this height because they are both stopping here an there are 2 gaps in the top of the gland nut that draws in the air? Maybe lol. Anybody know If this looks correct?

    How much damping oil for 280zx stock strut shock?

    And here it is when the damping rod is out but damping tube is still in the strut tube. And this is roughly 330 cc of damping oil. And it's 15w not 20w. But hoping it will do the trick.

    OK so here it is with the damping tube and the damping rod in it too. The level is fairly high in the damping tube but not as much around it in the strut tube.

    No problem Len. Glad my question helps for more than just me. And thank you very much for helping me with the pic thing. OK I filled the struts up with roughly 330 cc an it's not exactly 1/4" from the top because it fills part of the damper tube as well as the strut tube. But it feels fine just want to get this right the first time. I'll try and get some pics on here to help see the big picture.

    Ha that's funny. You just can man handle a spring an be like (that's a 150) lol awesome. But cool I thank you again very much an once I get it all under the car I'll post some pics hopefully. Having a buddy a machine shop make me some TC rods an mod my front control arms for adjustment on both. Also making a steering box brace an some simple idler arm braces. All be painted to match with a metallic dark Grey an all new red poly bushing an a moog steering kit. Also have a 1" racing sway bar for 510. This all going on a wagon. The thing has a built motor but steers an stops like shit so now it should be a fun little wagon.

    How much damping oil for 280zx stock strut shock?

    Ha ya I know what your saying an I'm kinda part of the group just cuz I don't know what the rate is an I just said screw it an gonna try it out but I figured that it may take a few try a to get the ride quality I'm looking for. Plus I only paid $20 for them both. I think I will try an figure out my spring rate tho so I know what all I'm dealing with before I just throw them under there. But 500lbs is crazy. What is stock 280zx spring rate? The coil over spring I have feels just a bit stiffer that the stock 280zx ones.

    Ya I could but I'm cheap lol. And the stock shocks will work just as good in my opinion. Thanks for the link tho! I don't know my spring weight but found a set of coil over kit on a Honda civic an fits perfect on the datsun struts. I figure it's spring rates are comparable considering the cars weigh about the same. So figure it will work fine with 20w shocks. But thank you! That should be all the info I need.

    Ha ya its cubic centimeters. 1000cc is one liter. Nobody?
  11. Doing 280zx coil overs for my 510 an have 20w fork oil. How much oil is recommended for each strut or what do you guys recommend? I seen datsun mike post once that recommend was about 325 cc an he used about 2/3 of a liter for both. Seems fine to me just don't know if a little changes alot. Thanks
  12. OK cool thanks. I could go the way you were talking but just cheap and didn't want to get a pump.lol it's just a car for my mom to drive. it never goes wheeling.
  13. OK awesome thank you guys for the info. Sounds like you were the right guy to see this post Rjawm. I think I'll just unplug the electric an try an get the mechanical one to work. And the carbed 22r is an older one not sure exactly but there both 22r's. Is there a diff with efi an carbed motors? And It was just easier to swap the motor with the carb on it then to deal with the efi. Plus I don't know anything bout efi imma datsun guy lol.
