Nissan Euro Spec. Springs 240Z through 280Z
As Of: 12 Feb. 2008
We believe that the Euro Spec 240-Z's used a lower, lower-spring-perch attachment point on their struts. This is as yet unconfirmed, but it seems to be the only way Nissan could have used these springs on the Euro Spec. 240-Z's, and retained their OEM ground clearance (6.5" at the front frame rail).
Also be aware that many of the new high pressure gas shocks, will raise the ride height of the Datsun 240-Z's, as the pressures used in these newer shocks will offload some weight from the springs. This has been reported to be from .5" to 1"!!.
