    New 69 wagon in NE Portland

    Time for another long over due update. I have been cleaning and adjusting stuff ever spare minute I have on the wagon. It's a great driver now. I just installed T3 coil overs with 150lbs springs to finish up the front end, it's is all new now with new rotors, calipers, wheel bearings and Z master cylinder.. I had a new 2" exhaust tucked up to get a few more hps outta the stock L16. New clutch slave and master cylinder. I had the minor tears in the seats fixed and got a dash cover for the uncracked dash. All the original lights are installed and working. Still looking for a nice set of bumpers but it's a great car and I am stoked to have found it and keep it going. It just turned over 62k miles. See you all at Canby where you can see it in person.

    Datsun 510 coilover reviews

    When I ordered the T3 I asked for an all black set up but red was the only option. Great quality package and at least you cannot see the red.

    Datsun 510 coilover reviews

    So I went for techno toy tuning = t3 coil overs with 150lbs springs. I had already rebuilt the whole front end 6 months ago so I pulled the struts out and tig welded the rings on for the threaded collar stops. I put it all back together in the middle of the threaded sleeve so it can adjuster 3.5" up or down from where it is now. It is a little over an inch lower in the front now from my last set up of ZX struts with stock 510 springs with one coil cut and perches as low as possible. It could go no lower with that set up. Now probably 3" lower in front than stock and 2" blocks in the rear. I added 1" bump steer spacers also. Tires are 185/60/14. Going to drive it for a week, see how everything works and if the height needs adjusting then tighten everything back up and get it aligned. This should be all I need chassis wise. By the way if you are thinking about coil overs, ONLY buy t3, they are made so nice, are great to go way low and the owner is very helpful. See y'all at Canby!

    The red fendered wagon front and center was moving to Eugene so we all stopped by to hang out. It was all planned on the ratsun Facebook page. Maybe the next time will be 5-10 or Canby...
