Alright guys, I'm buying the nismo cam for my z24. Anyone gotten it and notice a power curve difference? Is there less torque? and do I need to replace the springs?Continue

Hey guys.  I've been wanting to put in a cam for my truck and I'm pretty sure I know what specs I'm getting.  I'm just going to custom make one from comp cams.  My question is.  Will I have to strip…Continue

"I'm just gonna straight axle it. I'll post pictures when it's done. I found out sway control would actually be a problem with the shocks, but they'd work, if you didn't use it as a daily driver"

"Well, their is one way to find out...go ahead and do it and let us know how it turns out.     I don't know if you want to be the guinea pig but it would be interesting to find out and others may be interested."

"Problem #2 with that idea is the shock mounting points are meant for shock loads not supporting the whole truck. Look how thin they are and would need major beefing. I don't think air shocks would work well for this. Coilovers yes, but back to…"

Torsion bar delete

Hey guysAlright here it is, I have a project I'm working on taking all the good parts out of my old rusty 84 4x4 and putting it into a clean 85 4x4. Doing some engine stuff and all of it should be pretty straight forward, however, has anyone ever done a torsion bar delete? My big bright idea was to take some 2.0 Fox Air Shocks and just put them where the normal shocks go and act like a coilover, I already have the aftermarket upper A-arm, but has anyone ever done this before? And how much lift…See More
