obrut Posted March 9, 2020 Report Share Posted March 9, 2020 I'm putting together 280zx struts with T3 coilover kit with dynalite calipers and 300z hubs for my 72 510. I have the coilover ring welded to the struts and the struts are cleaned up and painted. I mocked up the KYB insert and noticed that the gland nut does not fully tighten down to the strut tube, there is about 3/16" gap. That is without the washer installed that came with the insert, is it normal to have the gap? My car has 15" panasports rim that I will be using. I know that these will clear the dynalite calipers with the 300z hubs brake combo. And I read that 13" wheels will clear when you run stock 280zx hubs and calipers if you grind the little ears off the calipers. Is there a way to clear 13" rims with the 300z hub/dynalite combo? I'm following the dime quarterly strut build but with the T3 coil over kit. I might use the T3 camber/caster plates too because I would like to autocross my 510 and I like playing with suspension settings. Do I need to modify the KYB strut inserts to fit the camber/caster plates? Quote Link to comment
