I know this site has a classifieds but it doesn't look like many people use it and I need these parts ASAP. I have an 84 Turbo so I figured installing my new Tokico's would be a breeze. Turns out sometime in the cars life someone had put on NA struts/shocks all the way around. So basicly Im looking for the turbo strut tubes and the mounts for the shocks in the rear. If anyone can help me out I would be very grateful. (I already called every junkyard in a 100 mile radius just to hear alot of "Nissan?? We ain't got no Nissan here")


Don't like looking like an ass posting a classified here but I need these parts!

P.S. I'm in Ohio

The back doesn't have tubes, but it has different mounts for the shocks. Only the front has tubes.

I did post a classified ad on z31.com last week. No responses as of now. But I'll keep my fingers crossed.

in the back you just need shocks there are no struts, in the front if someone swaped the N/A struts it's probably cheaper and easier to just by the struts that go on the N/A, I know you probably want the 5-way adj's but if it was me I'll have to work with what I got, at least until you find the parts you are looking for and then list the N/A stuff on ebay and you'll get some of your money back.

I already have the Tokico's so I don't want to sell those and rebuy NA struts. Someone has got to have a turbo parts car laying around and it's not like these strut tubes are in high demand. And I was told the rear shocks mount differently from turbo vs NA so I need the turbo mounts. Looks like it's harder than I thought to find these parts.

lol. Well Jeff, I don't have a turbo parts car, but I'm going to the junkyard near me, and we always have a few Z's around. I'll take a look for you, and see if I can help you out. I very well may be able to if your only looking for the tubes.

That would be amazing. I need the tubes and the shock mounts in the rear if you have time. Where are you from anyway? Thanks again! Even if you don't find them I appreciate the effort! :)

Im still not getting it. why is the turbo "mounts" different then the NAs? and why are these "tubes" different too?

The turbo tubes are larger than the NA tubes so the 5 way Tokico's won't fit in the NA tube.
