I'm looking for parts locally for my Nissan 300ZX Turbo.

It's a 1984 Z31 and this is what Im looking for:

- Limited Slip Differntial
-Front and Rear Strut tower braces

I think that's about it for now, nothing to major but no one locally seems to have any idea where I can get these parts in Canada.

Aren't there any Z31 forums? Ask there.

Why don't you make your own STBs? There isn't much to them, and you can make them as pretty or as ghetto as you'd like.

Thanks for that.... I asked because I want local as I mentioned, and there are plenty of sponsors on this board. I didn't ask for condescending comments telling me to look on Z31 boards of which most are useless.

I guess getting a simple answer when looking to purchase parts is difficult nowadays :dunno:


So the questions again is where if at all, are these parts available locally and does anyhow have any hookups for this?

I'm pretty sure you already knew the answer to your question before you asked it. Chill out.

So is there anyone here that may have some leads locally to the parts I'm looking for? New or used is fine, used is better if they're in A+ condition...

Find the part numbers on the internet then go to a shop like Mopac or Pro Stock (Not Pro Drag) on the north end.

Yea but i would rather deal with them because they have awsome parts prices and they get the part in when they say they will. I have been goin to Pro Stock for all my parts lately and couldnt be happier.
