Halfshaft flanges and donor parts

Greetings Z-Drivers,

I'm not your usual poster and seek you forebearance...

My name is Steve Smith and I race a TRiumph GT6. It's the British car your magnificent 240Z killed. No hard feelings, the superior product won.

That said, I use rear suspension bits from the Z's to build a racing suspension package that doesn't break and roll the car. I'll attach a link at the end with pics of what I do to your bits. Problem is these parts are running out for both of us.

My specific question regards the halfshaft flanges in the rear suspension. To make a set of my axles I have to kill a set of your halfshafts. I hate that as the ball spline setup is pretty nice.

Is there another, lesser source for those same U-joint flanges? I don't want to keep destroying your parts to keep ours alive.

Regards, Steve in Las Vegas

Seems like an easy enough part to make from billet steel on a CNC mill. What is the usage per year?

You're right. Never even considered that option. It's easy enough with my analog machines, don't know any CNC folk...Thanx
