I need to replace my struts. Does anyone know what kind work best. I want my 81 280zx to handle better because I have no power steering.
Thanks for any info you can provide.

Tokico Illuminas work best. Sure as the firmness of the earth.

I greatly envy you for not having power steering. But I'm unclear on the connection of why you want better handling BECAUSE of it?

Hmmmm... Come to think of it, maybe it's PERFECTLY OKAY for you to CONVERT to power steering, in which case, I wonder if maybe we can trade steering systems? You have, what, an '81? I have power steering on an '83, and I'm desperate to get rid of it for manual steering. There was this guy Vinh, and he said he'd sell me his manual rack, and then he never got back to me. Then there was this commercial dude who was posting, and he said he'd get back to me on a quote, and he never did, dam*it.

So anybody who has a manual steering system on a 280ZX that would fit my '83, and then they want to convert to power steering for some unfathomable reason, I'll do you an even trade on the power rack, pump, plumbing etc. off my '83 if your manual rack will work on it.

Anybody has more information etc., let me know.

I too want manual steering in my 83zx. If anyone else wants to trade, I have power steering in mine. I live in Salt Lake. I also want to trade my digital guages for analog ones.
