Well, I must admit that the suspension on my '79 280ZX is quite worn- I bottom out on speed bumps at > 7mph and the general ride feel isn't too great. So- what would I need to replace, and how much (approx.) would it cost me? I know these are extremely broad questions, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

<b>Are ya sitting Down????</b>

Hi John,

Depends on what ya want to do and how ya want ta to it... This will get ya started.. Round numbers ok...

I like Tokico hardware...
Adjustable Gas Strut: $150 ea... ya need 4
High Performance Gas struts: $70 ea... Ya still need 4
Do ya want new springs... $225-250 it includes all 4
New Sway Bars... the beefy ones 1" front and 7/8" rears
$220 for the pair.

urethane bushings.... depends on how far ya want to go.. but while you have the front end apart... I would consider new tie rod ends and ball joints....So add another $100 for parts.

These again are rough numbers... I'm doing the same thing as we speak... I know its well worth it....

Good Luck....

Dennis
