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 :)

    • Remote help for 350Z
      By me123 · Posted
      Hey I just did this and it wasn't quite like all the instructions say. Do the key six times and the doors unlock, now lock the doors using the manual lock by the door handle - not the electronic lock button down by the window controls. Press a button on the remote and the doors will unlock to signal it has paired.  I think I had to put the key to acc and lock the doors quickly after doing the six inserts, then the remote could be pressed without rushing.

      3.9 you won't really notice the SRM but with 4.08 you will. ECUTEK tune can correct it

      Sorry for the revival of this post but US 370Z owners who did the FD change notes that SRM is off by a couple hundred rpms. To those with a local manual 370z with a 3.9/4.08 FD, do you guys suffer a similar issue? And if so, how did you rectify it?

      I use a Miccus Mini-Jack RTX if you want another alternative, another member at a meet had the older model (Mini-jack RX).

      The main thing is to look out for a Bluetooth receiver that supports A2DP, but doesn't support HFC, this will ensure it doesn't interfere with the car's bluetooth for calls (HFC = handsfree calls, A2DP is for audio streaming). I'm using an iPhoine 8 with it, and have used a 6s and various other friend's phones (iPhone 7's, Google Nexus devices etc) without any issues.

      If you're looking at the Miccus options, the one I chose has some more modern audio codecs than the older one (APT-X, etc), which in theory means better audio.
