    280 Z? i don't know where you can find them. I have some 240 Zs but they are in bad
    shape and would be painful to use. Gonna be around today.

    Back to topic, Dustin is your Merc running yet?

    what was your ground clearance with just the aerostar springs? I got aerostar springs for my 51 and was thinking of doing the 1" spacers under the coil plate on the lower control arm to get it real low, also have the weight of a caddy 472 to help drop it down too

    Tried that with mine(springs and spacers)I had to go back stock on the plates.I only had about 2'' of clearance between the lower control arm,and crossmember(if you can get the springs to stay in,while you let it down:D).I drilled out all those rivets for nothing:mad:ended up putting the aerostar springs with 2'' dropped uprights.

    replacing those rivets with bolts makes changing springs a snap though!
