I've been battling with installing coilovers for 3 weeks now. Everything that can go wrong has.
The setup had CV companion flanges on it. Swapping those revealed the hub was from a 240Z and had different spline count than my 280Z flanges.
Swapping 240Z stock flanges onto it revealed that they still cannot attach to 280Z halfshafts.
Top it all off the brake lines are imperial on the big break kit upgrade, not metric.
I took some pictures out of desperation to get back some motivation as to why I'm doing this.
I got new gauges installed from Intellitronix and they look amazing. Video Link. To get them setup I had to install a new speed sensor, new water temp sensor, and new oil pressure sensor. The wiring took a long while and the speed sensor has a custom fabbed adapter that I had to make from the old sensor.
A lot of work but it's sooooo worth it.
Got a nice new stainless steel hose for the rad, and wrapped the driver side headers. The other headers will be wrapped eventually as well.
I picked up new coilover suspension with big brake upgrades on all 4 corners. 4 pot willwoods in the rear and even larger 4 pot custom calipers up front. They clear the 15s with half inch of space.
