Koni 8610 - 1437 with GC coilover and camber kit strut housing sectioning questions

I wish Ground Control was more helpful with mapping all of this out. From what I have read , the instructions that GC sent with my parts could be interpreted in a way that is completely wrong and would ruin my strut tubes.

Heres my situation:

1973 240Z
Koni 8610- 1437's
GC coil over kit
GC camber plates
Eibach springs :
GC 200.64.67: 8 inches long, 2 1/2 I.D., 380 lbs/inch
GC200.64.58: 8 inches long, 2 1/2 I.D., 340 lbs/inch

15x8" 0 offset wheels.


I would imagine this isnt a rare list of parts and has been successfully installed by other members many times. I am hoping someone can shed light on spacer size and sectioning lengths.

The car is going to be primarily a track vehicle.

I would really appreciate any help. Thanks !

If you don't find your answer here. Check hybrid z I know I just read something there recently about sectioning struts. Not sure if applys to your application.

I have a couple posts there asking for advice. I guess not as many people are using the 8610-1437's as I thought.

If you come across a thread that seems to apply please send me the link. Thanks!

That is a great thread for someone using those inserts on a 280Z. My shocks, springs and strut tubes are all different sizes. I appreciate it though.

No problem, but now I'll throw this out there. I happen to have 280z struts (all 4 ) if things don't work out for you. They're off a '77.
