I have a July '74 120Y known as The Defect III, that I'm thinking I'd like to get back on the road....

even if it doesn't make it back on the road and stays a farm hack, I need to get better front end stuff on it...

I have a very rusty late model Sunny (B310) struts aree okay I think, but it'll need new balljoints and tierod ends

is the entire sunny front end okay for use in Western Australia,or is it gonna be too wide, or is it wheel offset changes I'm getting confused with?

car will be having 200B SX alloy rims going on the front of it like it has on the back... though I know the 175/75 R14's will have to come off the back probably replace them with 175/60 R14's

also what aftermarket seats fit the 120Y/B210 seat rails and still work with seatbelts? have a pair of front seats from that same sunny... would like something with a fixed back so I sit up more than I do with the stock 120Y seats...

Entire sunny front end won't poke out of the guards, make sure you use the longer of the ball joints so it has less of that gumby positive camber.

As for seats I use a velo but I've always liked the idea of fitting a 260z seat or era specific one

Yes, the Sunny A12 struts are practically same as 1977-1978 120Y. They come with the narrow H74 ball joints same as 1977-1978 120Y, so you'll need the Sunny LCAs

Sunny A14/A15 struts are larger and come with wide W50 ball joints. You can fit these ball joints to the A12 struts, it will make the track 30mm wider than stock, resulting in less positive camber

Stock B310 Sunny wheels use the same offset as stock 1200/120Y wheels

donor car is a Febuary 1981 (square light) B310.. and I was told late model sunnies had beefier brakes - sadly I won't be using the H150 as getting it out from under the car is too hard...

really all I want out of the B310 strut swap is the ability to use my 200B SX Alloys on the front and get rid of "the o-rings of death"

ie 12" rims off the front of my car...

Australia-built B310 may have been fitted with better calipers/pads, but use the same size brake rotors

Some B310 use same brakes as 120Y

* 120Y 1974-1975: 212 mm disc
* 120Y 1976-1978: 220 mm disc
* B310 A12 (originally fitted with 12" wheels) 220 mm
* B310 A14/A14 (originally fitted with 13" wheels) 245 mm

If you are referring to wheel spacers, be aware that the B310 hubs & struts have a different offset than the 200B (810) setup

no not wheel spacers, as far as I know they are illegal here...

and yes those are 200B SX alloys on that 1200...

somewhere there is a pic of TD3 and it's 200B SX alloys..can only fit the rears on, fronts hit the struts and now I'm thinking if I strip the point off mine like on that 1200 they will look like delorean wheels...

the rims going on the front of my 120Y are off the sunny the struts are coming off...

175/65 R14's are what it has on the back now , probably can't go bigger , they look awesome, sadly the 200B SX alloys don't clear Aussie spec 120Y struts without spacers... Probably that PB210 dba for them looking awesome
