    I've read some of your other posts and, quite frankly, I don't know what it is you're expecting to find here. Probably the reason that some have not taken your posts seriously. If your struts are shot, replace them. If your suspension is bad, fix it. If you need wider tires, put wider tires on. A 280zx 2+2 isn't going to handle like a 240Z. It's going to have a certain amount of body roll anyway by design, bad struts just make it worse. You talk about 'building' your engine, you talk about putting a turbo on it, you even mention putting a RB26 in it (that engine alone is probably worth more than the car will ever be). You say it has a 'lot of rust' (your words). Concentrate on the basics. Get it running right, stopping and starting right, get it to the point where it's a safe vehicle to drive before you contemplate modifications that are probably a little 'over the top' for this car as you've described it.

    To handle the squat and roll, I got myself a set of Tokico Blue struts... In my opinion, they provide a good balance of improved handling dynamics and ride comfort.
    As to the roll (if the struts don't fix it) you can upgrade the sway bar...but start with the struts, otherwise you'll not notice any real difference...
