Got my Feal 451 Rally coilovers in the mail and managed to get them on the car this week.
The car handles amazingly now on rough roads will without a doubt be great during rallycross.



The old suspension was looking a little rough possibly bent from a few quick glances. Needless to say it wasn't really meant for the abuse it's seen.




I need to play around with the ride height a little more and figure out what kind of preload they recommend for these.

Been a long time since I've had time to do anything with this car due to work but finally did.



The parts have been stacking up so far..



Progress should be picking up fairly quickly now that I have time and plenty of parts


and a video if anyones interested

Not much done to the car lately, had to throw in a new axle in the rear and a new brake line.
Currently the car doesn't have a steering rack in it since I went to change it out, but the hard lines on the rack are so rusted that they'll need to be replaced with it.

Swapped the nasty corroded rack out of the car since it had been leaking.
Ran into some issues since I forgot the lines on the rack do not come with a new rack and mine were unusable. After ten days managed to get them in from a subaru dealership





Next I finally got around to aligning the car, which for this I bought a at home alignment kit.
I've done the string with tape-measure method in the past and it's always a pain, but this kit was really easy and will pay for itself after three alignments. I'm going to find out how close I got it too, with an alignment check on Monday.

Haha, I don't blame you.. if I didn't want to get this ready to do stage rallies it probably wouldn't get any attention with Datsun being there
