Oh no. That old page has seen better days. I'll see what I can dig up next week.

Seems as though everyone is cutting up the 240SX crossmember and welding the brackets onto the SQ crossmember. I moved the control arm holes up and out to better line up with the geometry of the 240SX. From there you need 240SX front coilovers (they're pretty cheap and plentiful) and S14 (5 bolt) kunckles. I used MA-Motorsports Awesometron 5000 cut knuckles.

Believe it or not, with a 1/4" spacer, some minimal grinding of the caliper and wheels I could fit 9" SQ wheels over 300ZX 4 pot brakes.

Steering column was a pain and involved some welding and fab stuff. I took the firewall grommet ring and welded on a 3" pipe, and then necked that down to a sleeve that the column slides into and is clamped to with a hose clamp. It holds the column in place but lets the tilt steering to work by flexing.

With a swap it is tight under the intake manifold... lots of fuel hoses, water hoses, fuel filters and wires to contend with. The steering column doesn't help, no do the power steering lines. Be prepared for cussing.
