Looks good ... did you cut into the driveshaft tunnel? .. my 710 goon's u-joint was hitting the cross-brace where the back seat belts bolt to

Mine was rubbing too. And that's a turrible sound... We cut the diff bump stop mount out and heated up the tunnel and smashed it with a BFH until the growth of the metal stopped. Rear seat clears... Fyi, Ford blue is pretty close in color match...

have you tried putting some KYB gas a just shocks? might keep it from bottoming a little bit

I seen the 510 wagon has a shock with a coil over like spring which might help it from bottoming

 

 

I dig this 610

I'm using the Monroe air shocks from rockauto, made for a 710 wagon, they probably have them for a 610 too

 

they only get a few inches of lift/drop, but they stiffen up the rear suspension at around 80psi

They are eyelet to eyelet.

 

I'll look into the air shocks. just need monies.

 

 

Does anyone know if I can remove the factory headlight relay? and keep the switching functions the same? Ive already added a relay w/fuse to the LO beams and one on the HI Beams.

Hey i had some questions for you. What spring rate are you using with the 280zx struts?

 

And did you do a 15/16th ZX master cyl? did you have to get a new proportioning valve?

 

also do you have pictures of the rear setup? hows the ride "quality"?

The brakes stopped working about 8 months ago... I think it saw it's future and decided to not attend... I had other plans to fix it, (so did hobo) and the 610 was defiled...his thrusting on the fender was....I just can't..... Too graphic....

Spring rate is unknown, I know they are blue...bought 280zx housings with used springs...yes. I used the 15/16th brake master... Didn't do anything with a prop valve. Ride is great until a bump, still needs a notch. what part of rear setup?
