    Default this is more wath i did all winter I ugraded rear end. before and after photos

    At start i wanted to change my diff for a VLSD that i found last summer

    And Z31 Axle that i also found last summer remembered the u joint problem that i had
    with my previous Z. And that i was starting to have on this one to.

    I had found modern motorsport stub axle and companion flange all i had to do order them.

    My brake were very durty so i figured i would work on everithing anyway.

    So here are a few before pictures

    So started by jacking the car on candles highest that i could

    Removed wheels, and muffler up to midle of the car

    Removed brakes no broplem`s there

    Try to get in touch with modern motorsport (no answer)
    post something here and was suprised that the guy has a superb web site
    but is very hard to reach

    found chequered flag racing does same stuff a bit more expensive but i needed parts
    I am not the kind of patient guy.

    By that time i also fount T3 control arms that i bought

    First battle was the spindle pins them they are hard to removed
    had to call a friend made that easy we did cut them off anyway i do not need them anymore.

    So he helped me to remove the diff easier with to guys it is heavy under a car for one person.

    So then the fun began

    Painted every part that were getting back under the car.

    clean the underbody
    removed every loose stuff underbody coating that was there from PO.
    did not remove every thing some of this was very well bounded.

    While there i remove the gas tank (suprise all the hoses that go to the expension tank where
    completely dry 42 yer of drinest.

    Brough bak the thing to metal and repaint.

    Rewashed everything and prep it

    Paint all the underbody from back to under the floor in from of the seats

    Rebuilt the brakes
    then i found a used but almost new set on ratsun $75

    So i used those they are in much beter shape than the one i had.

    Called my friend to put back the diff under the car.

    we went to put the Z31 axle in the R200 vlsd diff.
    Keep on learning the yokes are to small.

    So i found a guy that could rebuild my noisy CLSD with the
    good part from the VLSD. cost me 90$ and i made a new friend
    this is a 60 something guy he as about 20 cars from Nova SS 1971
    to MGB`s, Firebird`s when he buy a car he never sell it. He can repair
    almost anything as long as it is not front wheel drive ans it is naturaly aspirated.

    So realled m frien and we did put the diff under the car. lower control arms
    I already had installed stub axle and companion flanges.

    found that i need to push the wheel 1" out of standard to have these Z31 fit under
    there and that the sway bar was touching the outer rubber boot on the CV'S

    machined longer spacer paint cook the paint.

    So what i did today

    I did put back the muffler under the car Put the battery on charger

    2 thing left to do (for now)
    put fluid in rear brakes
    And have the car aligned.

    Wait for shorter Z31 Shafts from DSS (i can drive the car while i wait)
    they call for 6 to 7 weeks of delay.
