cheers mate, its actually the RHS that has the issue with the rod stamped R. it seems to line up just fine on the LHS with the R stamped. they are the later model rods with the cut out and longer hole spacings, both rods are identical.

anyone in aus have spare LHS castor rod sitting in their parts bin id be more than happy to relieve you of it?

hi guys, an update of what ive found so far.
-stripped struts down, all seem good, replaced spacers for the shocks in the tubes all cleaned and reassembled.

-has adjustable tops fitted and thrust bearings were in upside down, had 12mm shock rods through an 18mm hole in rose joint just slapping around so made some brass bushes and shrink fit them into the rose joint.

-ive just replaced the old rubber LCA bushes and on reassembly found the castor rods are both stamped R (for RHS i guess) and the side that knocks like hell doesnt line up with the LCA bolt holes by like 10mm which would give me massive neg castor on that side.

is there much difference between the castor rod lhs and rhs?
should i machine the shoulder back on the castor rod to get them lined up at the same height for both sides so effectively having same or close to same geometry for lhs and rhs?
should i bolt it all back together, somehow, and see what camber/castor it has and go from there before reworking stuff?

anything else helpfull much appreciated, i have been through all the tech wiki already

not keen on shelling out$360 for a set of maddat adjustable castor rods at this stage

hi guys, my a15 has tee on the dipstick pipe with a 6 mm pipe running along the left hand side of the rocker cover, it has broken off after the mounting bracket.

I cant find any pictures or reference to this pipe to find out what is meant to be connected to it, any ideas?

Thanks for the reply mate, Iím yet to go through the steering and bushes to have a good look, just thought id get some ideas floating around while Iím lining up jobs.

hi guys, been a long while since posting or owning a Datsun but here I am.
I recently acquired a 1200 ute and it has a absolutely horrible knock from both front struts when you go over anything with any remote speed, I believe it has stanza struts with adjustable tops fitted.
I have read you can change the oil to 20w50 engine oil but cant find any directions on how to do this, ive never played around with old struts

cheers
