Need some help figuring out what I need to do to my 280

Just bought a 77 280z and my plan for it is a street car/drift car. Need help picking suspension and steering mods for it. Anybody with a 280 that can help me?

Welcome to ZDriver!

The 280Z (S30) isn't any different than any other car that can "drift". Building a drift car isn't much of a secret and is generally applicable to any RWD car: Quality stiff coilovers, 2way LSD or welded diff, new bushings throughout, shortened steering knuckles or rack spacers, and plenty of power. How you achieve all that is up to you and your budget and skill level.

do you know where I can get the knuckles? I already have plans to put the lsd and the coilovers. Just not familiar with the steering modifications. Also who sells the bushings?
