I was looking at some BC coilovers for my 260Z 2+2, but am getting confused/concerned about original widths and lengths of the OEM setup. Apparently the later Zeds, (mine's a 1977) have larger diameter
springs and shocks? I don't want to buy the wrong thing.



It's the diameter of the strut tube you are worried about and you need to use the larger one for that model zed.

Which rules out the off the shelf BC coilover setup. :(
I guess I need to find another way to get more clearance for my fat wheels and tyres, or sell them and get something less wide.

They do them for the bigger strut (55mm) but they are not in stock and take about 7 days to get in .
Everything is the same except the base that welds to your strut .

When ordering you need to let them know what diameter struts you have
51mm  or 55mm

9" 0 offset wheels should fit on rear but front will need spacer ,
caster rod will hit at full lock  , do your own measurements to make sure
OR MAKE WHEELS FIT 
That's what I did


if you follow the thread on Hybirdz there are a few images of cars with them installed
and they do go low

image of my car with my test fit 
17 x 10.5  J  fronts    and  17 x 11.5  J  rears    SSR Professor     
and it  can go lower  !   

Cheers

With the BC's, are you now able to purchase different spring rates?

 

Last time I checked (around 3 months ago) you couldn't get different spring rates just the 4kg F and 5kg R that they offer here in OZ.

 

In the US you can get whatever spring rates you want!!  

 

We are so not spoiled for options, like the US are... just saying
