Default IRS?

Hey there fellow brickingtons!


I was wondering of how many 240's and 242's in particular had been convertewd to Independent Rear Suspension setups and from what kinda inferior manufacturers it's been confiscated?


I am doing the conversion using the rear end off a nissan 350z, and it would be cool to see other ideas and possible swaps.


One i know is the lovely Poik's 242, that has been using the rear end off a ceretain beemah like things.


Cheers in advance!

I'm currently doing a conversion using a Nissan S14 subframe. This guy did it on a 240 using the S13 flavor:

A c4 Corvette rear end will fit nicely in there. Very simple and self contained

Cheers for the ideas and info boys!

Keep them coming!

I will need to make a video for my youtube channel soon about the whole idea for the 242 and to show off the bad points and a load of explanation too of what's there in the planning

If I were to do it over again () I'd probably use a C5/C6 complete rear subframe. The E39 IRS I chose is great for a road car, but the C5/C6 stuff would most likely be lighter and stiffer.

So it really depends on what you want to accomplish with the car.

Poik? Is that you?
I think Canuck has a C4 suspension going in an amazon. It has been a while since I saw it, and I was too awe-struck to ask which gen.
