Bad LHF Strut to bearing and top mount rubber

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi guys

I recently had my car serviced down at Dandenong Nissan (which were great btw), and found that an annouying squeak I had from my front left was a issue going from the LHF strut to bearing and also the top rubber.

I will be clarifying this tomorrow, but I wanted to know on here if its worth simply replacing not just the front left strut but the struts all around the vehicle with coilovers, as I was quoted that to get a OEM part from Japan for the LHF would cost me $1500 (same price almost as some MCA Blues). Would the coilovers essentially resolve that problem?

could either find a set of second hand oem struts, aftermarket struts or coilovers if you are already planning to get them

Just a update,

Turns out it was just my brakes once again, and so it was a real cheap fix which I was happy about :)

    • Amuse R1 Titan Progress or R1 Titan Extra???
      By s14 · Posted
      Hi Chantiz,   I have the Powerhouse Amuse Titan extra. It’s not that loud at all but gives the zed a bueatiful sound. I’m not too sure what the difference is between the extra and the progress.  Keep in mind YouTube clips don’t give a great indication of sound.

      Thanks mate, I was thinking they'd be worth about $500.

      Try Facebook, you'll likely get more replies, but I doubt there would be anybody. Are there brands with similar designs that are known to fit?

      I think I vaguely may have seen some Enkei and Vossen wheels with a similar design but not 100% sure.

      Also I guess be wary about the US etc if they don't have pictures of fitment, as they're more likely to do things like excessive camber and widebody kits to "make stuff fit".

      It really comes down to how patient you are, I wasn't bothered stuffing around so I sold my 370Z Enkei's (18", similar to those) for like $550. Could have probably got more if I left it longer.

      I'd aim for that as a bare minimum, mine were similar condition but had cheap tyres on the front from the previous owner. If those 350Z wheels are forged or anything like that, then add more on top of that.

      Hi, I'm about to take these off, does anyone have a rough idea how much they are worth? one has more rash but they're in reasonably condition with Falken Azensis tyres with about 70% tread. Thanks in advance, Neil.
