been searching time to ask

allright,
So ive been peeking between here and hybrids but i think i havent quite found the correct links.

So, What shock/hub/brake assemblies can be swapped from other nissans/datsuns to a 78 280z 2+2.

Ive got time to hit the junk yards or order parts before im ready, im not wanting to buy the obscenely priced kits specifically for my car.

thanks!

About the only thing is rear disc brakes from a 81-83 Nissan Maxima. Not exactly sure about the years only '82 because that's where I got mine. It's the ones with the L6 engine rear wheel drive. You can lower it by sectioning the struts.

Not sure why you are limiting yourself to only Datsun/Nissan...

awesome! thank you for the input.

is there a write up on this that would include the additional hardware needed?
i limited myself due to lack of knowing, the majority of links and advice so far has been to outrageously priced kits etc.
thanks, i appreciate it.

Lots of write ups... search for "S12" or "S12+8" or "S12W" or "S30 Brake Upgrade"

HBZ and ZCar also have lots of info on this:
