Would anybody have one of these?
Looking to reinstall the stock suspension struts and

Hi Steve,

According to my parts manual, the strut insulator is the same front and rear and 240Z or 260Z. I know I have a couple of spares of these. I do have some upper spring seats too but not sure if they are 240Z or 260Z ones and the parts manual shows these as different numbers. I will get to the container in the next couple of days and see if they have any numbers stamped on them.

Ok, that's interesting re the manual; the front one I have is lower than the rear ones.
Also, a couple of the Z parts sites in the US show the front one as being lower and look like the ones I have.
Unfortunately these guys only have the accompanying 240 spring seat, no 260 ones.
Looking forward to what you find.

Hi Steve,

Sorry, finally got to the container yesterday. I have both size insulators and some spring seats that are all the same so I'm not sure if they are 240 or 260. I'm intending to change the shocks in my Z over the enforced break so will check if the spare I have is the same as on my 240. Sorry but I won't be able to get them to you until level 4 is over.

Okay,
thanks for coming back to me, I know priorities have shifted somewhat
with everything that's going on !
Enjoy doing your shocks and take care.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Steve,

I haven't got to removing the struts out of my car yet as been too busy working. Hope to do so in the next couple of weeks though. Do you still want the isolator and spring seat ? If so how about I send them to you and you can check for fitment. I'm sure the isolator is fine, it is just the spring seat I'm not sure about.

PM me your address if you want me to send them.

Mike
