It's been a while since an update.
The front and rear brakes are just about finished, but before they get fitted to anything the struts need to be done.
I've started with the fronts. Pretty easy going until I came to the gland nut! That was a sharp thing to get out and in the end took the struts down to the local Nissan dealer. They looked at the struts and couldn't even imagine what sort of Nissan they were from - and some of the mechanics were older than me!
Anyway, these things take two people to get out - unless you have the special tool and we all know no-one does! So once they were off, the struts got a good clean up and blast.
I will be getting Ben's (Otomoto) coilovers and I will be sectioning the struts to maintain some suspension travel. I am looking for shocker inserts that will fit in the 240 (51mm) struts that can effectively rebound a 6kg/mm spring. Obviously I want to get them before I section the struts. Anyone got any laying about?
