nzdatman - I am assuming this can be rectified by adding 20mm shims between the crossmember and body, therefore lowering the the crossmember. I imagine slightly longer bolts will be need.

Yes I would think so, canít remember the exact difference in height but spacers should work. I ran the 60a in my car without spacers as I didnít pick up the difference in height initially but when I drove it I noticed the gear lever sat higher than before. Probably not ideal but still seemed to work ok

Yes thatís correct it will bolt in but will be at the wrong height. I put a 60a box into my sunny coupe and it sat too high.

The rods do bolt in but they hit the oil pan due to the bigger bolts/big end. It is only a slight interference but worth mentioning.

The konis in my car are 80-2275. Gemini front from memory.
They are quite short. I'm thinking of putting some bilsteins in my car but will run the konis first to give a basis for comparison.

Dave why are you wanting to use coupe shocks? Will they fit your sedan? I have konis in my coupe that came with the jts leaf springs. I think they were originally for a Gemini or something. Can get the part number off them tomorrow if that helps. Who did you get a price from for rebuilding the bilsteins? What konis are you running in the front?

Yeah lucky more lives weren't lost! Gives an idea of the amazing power in the quakes when you see the aftermath.
Can't believe I slept through it! Although it was a long way from me it was still felt strongly up here.

The Sunnys sold here (made in Japan) aren't rustbuckets, maybe the NZ-assembled ones weren't rust-treated or painted the same?


I may be wrong but I understood the sunny coupes were imported into nz fully built up which should make them equal to the Sunnys sold in USA? The sunny coupes I have had have had a bit of rust but far less than the 1200s I've owned! I've had two round headlight Sunnys (A14 5spd) and they had a bit of rust but nothing too major. I thought all the early datsuns had similar rust proofing ie nothing???
