    The fact that he has like 5 V8 engines sitting in his garage should be a giveaway.

        There's lots of arguing over these on all the big north american S-Chassis websites about ISIS being a bad company and such, but really, buy through Enjuku and they warranty all the ISIS parts.

        If I was looking at aftermarket subframe bushings, I'd be getting the solid risers from PoweredByMax

        • wile on the Enjuku comment they now stock a small line of gear from GKtech in Australia or alternatively you can order direct of them they ship to the USA and world wide daily, as iv already checked with Greg just recently, i can personally vouch for there gear having run almost all of there alignment catalog now ( and will again when i build my usdm 240 after migrating to the states ) there gear is top notch for what your paying, im 99 percent sure they have solid bushes etc just google them they have loads of great schassis gear...

            • Still throwing my options around lately.

              Putting it down to either a 180SX or an S13.
              S13's seem to be for sale a lot more.
              180SX's have more expensive parts (Type X tail lights, for instance).
              The 180SX would be something I'd want long-term.
              Parts are cheap for both.
              The boot space in a 180SX is superior (although nothing hugely amazing).
              Apparently the S13 is better for back seat passengers, but [email protected] seat passengers.
              Onevia's look great. Sileighties look great. Both cars look good in their own regards.

              Decisions decisions...

              • You could fit 100 dead hookers in the boot of my 180. 'dat room. Although, in all fairness, there's no floor so you'd just be replacing them each time. Parts won't cost you an arm and a leg for the most part, being that they're 20 odd year old cars, but finding decent ones will be hard. Keep up the search, Sheeplet.

                • A 180's space would be handy.
                  I'm planning on going to the markets to do my shopping from now on. I need a fair bit of room for all the food I'll be buying.

                    ya i ran welded knuckles in the s14 but gave up after i busted the first set, but once i settle into a LHD id really like to give the GKtech knucks a go since they will be well into production by the time i get to that lol...
                    also spent some time checking out the enjuku racing website today they got loads of half decent gear amazing how much cheaper shit is in the USA building skidders in Australia is bullshit expensive,

                      Tell me about it. Saving everything possible for this damn RB25 180, and i'll probably get sick of it after a season and drop the running gear into a daily. >.<

                            Chyeah.
                            I can always get them from Japan cheaper, thankfully.

                            Need to brush up on my tetris skills, I think.

                            • large size for effect

                              In other news, i'm thinkin of just buying some second hand damper adjustable struts rather than saving up millions of dollars for coilovers.
                              Watchaguys think?

                                congratulations, i am now hungry. lol


                                Also if you get used koni adjustable struts you can send them in to koni to be rebuilt good as new. The trick is finding an authorized service place in Australia.
