They have 2 & 3" block kits. I ordered the 2". I just have to get camber plates, brake pads & misc little things for the front. PO gave me some 280z strut towers cut down & set up for the 510 with calipers & rotors. Get this wag lowered.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"
