Just Bought 1971 240z, See Pics Below-run good but there is a sqeeling/sqeaking sound near the belts-this starts at startup and at idle. The rear end also feels like it bottoms out over bumps. Previous owner suggested changing out the old rubber bushings to polyurethane bushings to see if that helps the ride. Any suggestions on both would be greatly helpful!

Thanks and looking forward to sharing this beautiful car with some pictures shortly!

when you say improve the ride, know that generally speaking PU makes for a stiffer ride, more road noise, feel every pebble on the road kind of ride. Do some searching before going down that route.


You may want to bounce test the suspension, likely the struts have lost the oil they need to dampen the action of the springs. If that is is the case you can either rebuild or replace with cartridges. If its still has the orig struts rebuilding is a matter of replacing some o rings and adding some oil. If they have been replaced with carts, then your only option is to replace with new carts.


Where about's are you in Orlando? I am on the west side near Dr. Phillips.
