#1560959 521 KYB gas-a-just shocks?

Posted by DatEz on 27 April 2018 - 03:36 PM

Nice, just bought all four on Rockauto. They were only $30 a piece and if you buy all four there is a mail-in rebate for $40! New shocks all around for $80 is a steal!

So KYB Gas-A-Just shocks are probably the best aftermarket replacement for shocks? I am in the market right now to replace my rear shocks since they are blown.




#1537562 521 rear axle shims

Posted by DatEz on 30 December 2017 - 05:20 PM

Well I bought the kit off a guy who already installed it but never used it because he decided to convert to 5 lug. But I also didn’t have my differential in because I was waiting for my gasket that arrived today. Now to install the new diff gasket, do I NEED to have a dealer of some sort applied? If so, would clear rtv work?

Ok, I left them all on the way they were when I took the axles off. But now I have fully installed the disc brake conversion and there is a ton of wobble/play. Was I supposed to leave some of the backing plate on to fill the gap? I had the entire plate cut off.

Hey folks, I’m currently swapping the rear drums to disc brakes, but I noticed that when I pulled off my rear axles, one side had only three metal shims and the other side had about 6. Does anyone know what the correct amount on each side is and also where to buy new shims? I can’t find them online.


#1486275 Rims and tires for 521

Posted by DatEz on 06 May 2017 - 08:25 PM

Is there an offset and wheel spec chart for fitting the 521 somewhere? I have a set of wheels 15x7 -15, and I'm also considering buying another set that is 15x7.5 -21, but I am not sure if I will be rubbing with the negative of an offset.

Did you have to create your own clutch hard lines? is that the stock 521 clutch slave?

Are you sure its a 36mm? I cant find one anywhere, it goes 30,32,34,38mm. Also, the ears on the transmission that you recommend cutting off, isn't that there the bolt go for the rubber mount on the trans?




#1406570 Is 521 RHD with SR20DET Swap Possible?

Posted by DatEz on 01 August 2016 - 08:02 PM

Mrbigtanker, I've tried searching that user and key word but I didn't find anything. What's his build about? Also, do you have a build thread on your fj20 swap? Is your truck awd?


#1406432 Is 521 RHD with SR20DET Swap Possible?

Posted by DatEz on 01 August 2016 - 09:33 AM

Would anyone happen to know if converting a 521 to a RHD have any fitment issues with an SR20DET swap? From what I read on a thread on here for the swap on a LHD truck, there seems to be a slight fitment issue with the turbo set up and the steering column. However; I am thinking that I can avoid that issue with the conversion, but the manifold also looks like it will be in the way for a RHD steering column. Is there anything else I need to worry about other than steering column? I have tried googling pics of RHD with the swap and couldn't find any either.




#1314728 SU Carb Fitments for L16

Posted by DatEz on 05 November 2015 - 09:10 PM

Hey you guys, so I don't come on here often, and I don't know much. I have been thinking about changing my set up on my 521 L16, from a 32/36 weber to dual SU Carbs. The only problem I have, is that I have found it pretty difficult to find a working pair of SU carbs for a decent price, EXCEPT for SU carbs off a Z engine. I have searched many sources online and no clear answer, my brother says no, my friend who has the z su carbs says yes. My question is this- Do Z SU carbs fit onto an L16 manifold if I only use two of them? I can't find the specs or the sizes of the SU carbs or manifolds for both cars, so I'm completely lost.
