I noticed I need some new track rod ends (the gaiters on the ball joints have gone) and while I'm at it I might put in some new shocks ( i think their getting a bit old n soggy). I called nissan and it seems they dont bother converting their prices into pounds they just change the Y to a £ :rolleyes:, so

a)does anyone know where you can get pattern parts

b)would the front suspension+steering be the same as a (z32) 300zx, they must be common to loadsa nissans cause the nissan dealer had them in stock!

anyone?

yeah, thats about it for the tie/track rod ends, part 48520-71L25 £55.80 +vat each - I saw their price list and they buy them from nissan at £45.76 so its not really the garages fault, their really helpful! I'm just a tight wad used to spending £8 in something like this for a saab or vw

yeah she wasnt holding back, she said "dont worry I've played Mario Carts loads" as she kicked down on the entry to the last bend a 70, tsch women drivers eh! she's bringing her own car next time.

I will give abbey a go, I've kind of been avoiding them, cause I phoned them about twice a week for 2 months while they were getting my car SVA'd, poor sods, "Is it ready yet?"...

oh yeah, how smooth am I?

At that moment my camera was using up the last of its batteries filming the grass and my right leg, I've go footage of 2 passes of jamie on the start finish straight and 3 minutes of grass and right leg.
