I thought my rear main was leaking.. but after getting intimate with the alternator it appears to be the oil pan gasket, again. I tightened the bolts just a little bit to see if it would stop. I'm guessing it's the same or worse now. Meh.

Found a local datsun for sale in craigslist. Had a dealer datsun ate on it. On a whim emailed him to see if he would part with just the plate.

Turns out we made a deal. Kendall was our dealer in Eugene.

I thought it was Hutchins Nissan / Datsun in Springfield?

An idea doesn't work unless you do.

I still need to set the rear camber and toe a bit. Then may have to lower it a bit more in the rear. I could always raise the front a 1/2" or so to even it out. We'll see..


Alignment coming soon once I get the height figured out.

I'm already feeling the pain of the hunt for lows.

Wheels are 15s and making getting low without crazy camber hard. I cut the bump stops tonight. Still pretty excessive rake.

Front coils at max height. Would need to remove spit collars and raise perch about 2 inches and weld in place. That would allow a wide range of adjustment.. or I could get longer threaded coil sleeves. I might look into that.

Are you using the 4" tall Ground Control sleeves? If so, SRP makes a 7" version...

It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

I think 4 or 5. I bought a 7" from amazon for $8. I'll use that to check. If it works, I'll order the other. I like the height in front, but could go up just a little bit. I already have a good dent in the oil pan.. don't need another.
