    Default Early 260Z springs? , AZC , and 15 inch wheels

    Hello friends!

    So my rear springs seem to be shot,Time to replace / Upgrade. So What should I use , I still want a nice stock height , I Would like to avoid an inch drop.

    So can I still get springs some AZC?( I emailed but heard nothing) or should I just get the 280Z Ebach's?

    2nd Any issues running a solid mount i'm worried the load transfer will break something else . Motorsport! Solid Differential Mount, 70-78* 240Z-260Z-280Z - The Z Store! Nissan-Datsun 240Z-260Z-280Z-280ZX-300ZX(Z31/Z32)-350Z-370Z Parts
    Or should I just buy the RT TechnoVersions - Home of MeterMatch, TachMatch, Diff Mount and MotorMatch

    3rd
    I seem to be having a hard time finding any 70's vintage 15 wheels and i'm not sure where to look!

    Thanks!

    I used Chevette springs at all 4 corners. I cut 3 coils off the front and 1.75 off the rear. It is at about stock ride height. It has a firm ride that doesn't seem to jar, but then again, roads are smoother down South.

    IMHO, try going with 16x7 instead of 15s. You have a better selection of tires.
