I would like better suspension (2+2).

Check to see if you have the Orig. wet legs first, Mike.

 

Wow you're right on the money with the Wet Legs theory. I just did the front and it's awesome. Top Darts.

Sorry to Butt in Lurch... NOT..... But if you have wet legs then they will be very similar to the pictures i posted above when dismantaled.

Hey guys!

 

I am currently in the middle of restoring my suspension on my 2+2 and read this thread before attempting it - it's bloody helpful!

 

I have a question though! It turns out my car has the original 'wet legs' so I have taken them apart to replace fluid etc, however, it turns out that one of my front 'legs' has been running dry for a while by the looks of things, there is wear on the bush and shaft (see pics) and the seal on the top has worn as a result (probably the reason for it being dry - see pic).

 

I was wondering if there is a rebuild kit available for these items? Are the bushes and seals still available from anywhere? I know it's a big ask but I can only hope!

I've read this thread with much interest - and i'm now in the process of redoing my 'wetlegs' for my 260z.

 

Three questions:

 

1) did we establish if there is a difference in atf fluid amounts for 260z struts vs. 240z struts?

 

2) When reloading the atf - does it all get loaded in the 'inner' tube assembly?

 

3) Is there any 'bleeding' required - if so, what is the recommended way to do this?

 

cheers

I have just done this work with the wet legs in my 2+2 and found when emptying out the old crap that was in there (they varied from 250mls to 330mls) I settled on 400mls each for front and rear. Combined with the lowered King spring that were fitted at the same time the difference is fantastic. At first I thought it to be too hard but after a few drives it is actually not as hard as my VZ C'dore with FE2 susp.
