I already posted this under that megan racing thing but thought i should probably make a thread for it. I just ordered a set today, it cost me under 450 including CA sales tax and shipping. I had these on my old 84 turbo that eternalnewbie now has and i (and him too im sure) can say it works great! i havent seen the rears but he said its pretty simple bolt on action. There's two types available for the front, one where u cut off the old spring perch and slide one on (something like that) and the other where you cut off the spring perch and weld on this coilover kit. they are very knowledgeable and very helpful. be sure to tell them what spring rate you want otherwise you'll get stock ratings. oh yea, it comes with new eibach springs. you will also be able to use your current, existing shocks. all it does is replace the normal spring with an adjustable type.here's the fronts
call and ask for Jay, he's the one who helped me last week. tell him you want the weld on kit for the 280zx. its listed as: c/o kit, Datsun 510/610/710 etc. then there's a drop down box for weld on 280zx.
part number: GC 180.64.75
im not sure what spring they'll give you tho, but i got a rather stiff one tho for the motor thats being installed. just tell them what you want in terms of spring rate otherwise they'll give you a stock spring
280zx up front, 300zx (84-89) rears..unless you have a solid rear, then do a datsun 210/200 rear, or see below.....
there's no listing for the rears as its a custom order, but they've been making them since 1988
The rears FOR A SOLID AXLE MODEL were 199 plus CA sales tax and shipping. shipping on both front and rear was 20 bucks total.

Here's an idea of what it looks like. Again, this is off of my old 84 turbo...now belongs to eternalnewbie. this is the weld on type
was just talking to one of the guys over at ground control today and they WILL make proper coilovers for the IRS
rear. send them your rear shocks and they will send you back a coilover. i didnt get an exact quote, however i believe it to be in teh 200-300 dollar range. and they still make the height adjusters for solid rear as i meantioned earlier.http://www.ground-control-store.com/index.php
