What front struts fit C31/R30

Post by Jelmer Laurel C31 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 7:25 pm

What struts out of other Datsuns/Nissans fit the knuckle of my 1983 C31 Laurel?

I want to put gas charged shocks in the front but they don't make them anymore for the C31.
Also, the C31 has the hub and brake rotor as one piece and rotors are almost non excistand over here.

So It would be great if I can fit some 280ZX or C32 Laurel struts.

Shock cartridges should be the same as R30 skyline should still be able to get them. R31/C32 would be good brake upgrade especially if they are the bigger turbo brakes. Otherwise S13 silva suspension could work but would need abit more modding than the R3/C32 stuff.

Thanks! Do you know if R31/C32 struts bolt to the C31 knuckle?

They should, they are the same bolt spacing.
