    Ball joint help

    Looks like the play is between the taper on the joint and the lower arm. If the arm is worn the nut bottoms out on the taper and will never get tight. Compare with other side and look at number of threads above nut.

    1973 Datsun 240z (L28) US import restoration

    Just a thought get the battery charger ready to go once back together. How bad would it be to get rebuilt then need to wait until the next day as battery charges up.

    Knocking. Argh

    As Graeme said above I done his and when I striped them the gland nut at the top of strut tube was loose. I think 50mm spanner required in through spring to check no stripping required.

    240z diff replacement or refurbishment?

    I believe the diff already installed is R200 not checked ratio. As the engine is L28 entire drive train probably from 280Z
