    Default Energy Suspension, Hyper-Flex bushing kit.

    I want new rubber bushings on my car while the motors out. Do you all use Energy Suspension, Hyper-Flex? It's the most complete and most reasonably priced I've found, http://www.sparktecmotorsports.com/es-7-18102.html, experience, advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you ahead. Cliff.

    That is the 260/280 kit. If you have a 240z most of it will work but some items need to be trimmed.

    I would recommend that you also buy the ball and socket tension-compression rod kit rather than use the poly parts in the kit.
    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    Thank you Blue. Nothing but respect from your knowledge. I have '77 280 and will read up on the ball and socket tension-compression rod kit.

    Cliff,

    I've used the ball and socket on my 76 280Z and it works really well.
    All the other bushings are urethane.

    I've done exactly as Dave has described above. Get the tc rod kit, all my research showed that this was the only way to go.

    Thank you guys. I'm going to do what you suggest. Another $30 or so bucks plus the Hyper-Flex for night and day diffrence sounds great.

    Go the www.atlanticz.ca and read some of Blue's tech articles. They are a big help.
    You may want to get the DVD from Ztherapy "Street Racing Suspensions".

    I've been reading a lot at atlanticz. I've found that "Yutaka Katayama" translates to "Blue" in English. Seriously though, Mr Blue has made anyone that owns a Zs life a little better. He should do a book and get rich then move somewhere warmer.

    Guys I did this full kit and used the supplied bushings for the tension rod. What I am missing with this socket and tension rod kit? I am satisfied with the bushings.

    Do you know where my Grandpa's 240z is? He sold it around 1994. I think it was a 72. It was orange with black interior and some sort of scissors style aftermarket crank up sunroof. I think it was sold to a fellow pharmacist and I think he was from Egg Harbor Wisconsin. At the time the car had between 32-36k original miles. He sold it for the lowly sum of $3000-$3500. My grandpa passed away a few years ago and I would like to know its whereabouts.

    Cutting through bumpy corners. Night and day difference.
