Gabriel from TTT should know all this any way and I am sure he does. That doesn't mean it will fit. I ordered two sets of strut braces from him and one didn't fit due to different lengths but he replaced them no charge. A really great guy to deal with.

Yeah Peter, Gabriel is the guy I'm emailing. He said he couldn't confirm if it would fit a 2+2 and asked me to send him measurements.

 

I guess there must be some extra thread on each end of the tri-bar fittings as suggested earlier so I think I'll just order them and if I can't get them fitted, Matty can take them off my hands (once I have of course measured how short they are)!

by memory mine had at least 30-40mm tread on each end to play with. so there is plenty of room for adjustment.

Exchanged emails with TTT again - had asked if he stocked different stuff for the 280z - and learned something mildly interesting.

 

I figured my allegedly taller 2+2 strut top height might be the same as for the 280z and asked if he stocked different parts accordingly. He said that a 280z strut brace is actually SHORTER than a 240z one because the added height brings the tops closer together.

 

I would not have imagined that; in my head I just assumed 260z 2+2 and 280z would be wider than 240z.
