Ok, what is the best rear-end to drop into my 280ZX? I have a 1982 non turbo model with a 5 speed tranny. Also, this 300ZX drive line conversion thing...what's that all about? I have a 1986 300ZX turbo, too bad it had an automatic transmission :(

What car do I get the rear end from, do I need to modify anything to put it on, anything like that.

Also, the 300ZX driveline, what year do I get one from, what kinda tranny if it matters, also, if I put on the new rear end, is there any kind of modificatin nescessary to put the 300ZX drive line on?

You can use the 3.7 LSD from 300ZXTs(but not the white SS) and I think thats about all thats worth using. You can also use an automatic tranny if you use the 82 maxima bell housing but who wants an auto?

No I dont want to put an auto on my car, I was saying the 300ZX turbo that I DO have was an automatic tranny. I didnt' know if the driveline swap that's popular from 300s to 280s had to have a 5 speed drive line to a 5 speed car. I dunno if the driveline on auto 300s is the same as 5 speed 300s. If it has to be a driveline from a 300ZX with a manual then I'll find one, I was just curious if the auto driveline would work.
