Where are you in Scotland? My sister moved to Edinburgh so I've been up there a bunch!

 

I'm about 45mins from Edinburgh 😉

you get the new upgrade bushing for the trailing arms?

 

I have a vibration isse with my 510 since i had it going up hill under load it vibrates and I just cant figure it out. Its the traikling arms bushing or maybe the Mustache bar bushings.

ANYBODY?????????????have a idea????

 

Make sure those brake lines are good!!!!!

Z car 'snowflakes'? One of my favorite rims, the 720 truck has an identical alloy rim but 6 bolt. Seen these rims on 510s but don't remember there being a problem. How large a tire are you using? You might voice your concerns over at ... http://www.the510realm.com/  ... someone

 

Will the car be lowered much? The rears tend toward negative camber when lowered, wider rubber clears the fender arches but car looks terrible and probably handles worse. The rear cross member can be slotted to raise the mounting points on the control arms. How large a tire are you using?

Under load? likely one of the U joints.

Maybe the primary drive shaft to the rear.

Replaced all the bushes and have camber and toe adjustment.

 

Tyres are 185/60, Once i get the new king springs (30mm lowered and uprated)  fitted i suspect it may just be adjustment needing done or hope 🙂 lol

 

I have yet to find new flexi pipes but my local place is closed due to COVID-19. 

I still need to finish making the metal pipes but i have a little concern on the rear cylinder. I can see it slides so does the metal pipe slide with it?

 

Tried swapping wheels round incase it's a weak tyre?

^^ on the wheels, they have a low offset, like a +10mm, With your camber and toe adjusted to the proper settings, they will rub.  Those would generally “fit” when the car is lowered without adjusting camber, by the nature of the stock suspension.  Although I never tried a 175/60/14 tire or 185/55 tire in the back, to see if it rubs with a proper alignment.  If the offset was closer to a +15mm, they maybe could fit. Maybe... there are others on here who have tried more combos than myself.

Be honest that is a nice color car

always love that 510 color

think  a 15 inch rim would look better

Rota OS Mesh is a cheap nice looking wheel,cheap

ne honest the stock hubcaps look good also

the 1969 ones then you don’t have to worry about figment.

Thanks, I thought this maybe the case. It's not catching by much at the moment so i maybe able to trim back the lip to gain clearance. but best wait till i have teh springs and fitted to see as it may site a bit higher and reduce the issue even more.

I was going to change the colour to datsun orange but decided to keep original.

 

I was going to go daft with modifying(sr20, coil overs etc)  but as UK registered 510's are very rare in the UK (probably a handful left) I'm trying to keep the car original with period modification or close too.

Here are 195/60-14 tires on my '72 wagon with no rubbing. Have 2" lowering blocks on the back too. The track width might be different on a wagon - not sure of the specs.
