Default Datsun pickup front coilover brackets

Been making these for a while, they are a weld on affair, and allow the kingpin trucks to replace the torsion bar setup in the front with Qa1 coilovers or equivalent.

The first few pics are of me mocking them up. The whole setup with hardware ships for $200 in the US.











These parts are all made of 1/4" steel, laser cut for precision.

The lower mounts look a lot nicer now as well, and I include 1/2" Grade 8 hardware for both upper/lower mounts.

Here's the info for the shocks that Ed "Sanitys" sent me for mock up:


For the dual adjustable w/ 7 inch 400lb springs the total was $594 dollars (shipped to oregon). I think the single adjustables are half that...

DDR3855 coilovers

Here's the finished products:

BUMP

I also make these for the 720's/HB's. I'll be making a thread for those soon.

Can you describe or post a pic of the parts that make up the upper mount? 3 pieces welded together?

Both top and bottom brackets are laser cut from 1/4" mild steel plate. The upper mount slides over top of the stock shock tower and welds in place, after the top of the shock tower is cut off of course.

It pretty much locates itself.

Please don't forget about us Frontier owners too. I would love to have some coilovers on my Frontier and I'm sure I'm not the only one..

Very slick! I've been eyeballing your adjustable upper control arms, as well. Just what I've been looking for!
