Hey Nick, welcome to Ratsun.
We have oodles of 521 owners here with build threads, projects and knowledge of any problems you might come across so don't be shy and ask. Lowering is probably one of the most documented modifications on any truck. The odometer only goes to 99,999 before returning to 00,000 and starting again. Just saying to look at brake pedal and driver's seat for abnormal wear for a truck with 60K on it.
Do you have a photo hosting site? other than Photobucket??? If not can I recommend .. https://imgur.com/ ..?? although there are many more with different features. Now you can post pictures of your 521 hear, because we all like pictures. Besides if you have a problem a picture is worth a thousand words of explaining.

It's kinda funny that when there are not a lot of other Datsun trucks around, the ones that are around tend to stay original, it even has a "Datsun" mat.
That interior photo shows very well how cramped the 521 can be, big guys don't fit well in them.

The odds are the tag on the door jam pillar will say this is a late 1970 truck, likely built after August 1970.
Keep the bench seat, look under the seat at the front seat mounts, are there spacers between the seat rail and the mount rail?
The bench seat has the thinnest back, no bucket seat will give you more room.

Nice looking truck. I just bought mine a couple months ago. It’s an adventure for sure.
A never ending one.
