    Default Springs for 280Z, Eibach??

    I'm planning to buy new spring set for my 1977 280Z as many people recomended, I searched for them on VB, I noticed that they are available only for 240Z, part number at VB 87-900 for Eibach

    on the other hand, Suspension Techniques have for 280Z on VB with part number 87-801..

    on shox.com they have eibach springs for 240Z only, and when I search for 280Z it shows 280Z all trims from 79-83!? they mean ZX don't they?

    from where do 280Z cars owners have Eibach springs? or they just fit a 240Z spring set on thier cars? coz if it was supposed to loer the car by 1" on a 240, it will lower a 280Z a bit more and might handle differently..am I right?

    thanx
    Mohamed.

    well I did a sweet search for spare parts, I found out that a 280Z's Eibach springs have the part #6303-140 which can't be found in the official Eibach's wesite, is it possible that they are not making any of them anymore?

    I found it on this link:

    I'm not a 280 guy but I read somewhere the Einbach isn't making springs for the 280Z or maybe the 280ZX anymore. Not sure which or if both, or why.

    Several people on this site are running the heavey duty springs from Arizona Z car. I've heard good things about that set, I'm planning on getting a set myself. $200 bucks.

    but for an overseas buyer it doesn't seem so good from the way of payment and delivery.. I just need them to be delivered to NY though..

    I can order ST springs but I read that they are very stiff.. on the other hand there are to tokicos springs which are also stiff..


    were Eibach's springs available in older stocks? coz I found some of them on some websites with the part number 6303.140.. or I just should go for 240Z's springs and it could lower the car more than 1"?
