510 Wagon Performance Leaf Spring Lowering Kit
About 15 years ago, I went for a ride with my friend "Wagon Jon", railing our back country roads in California. I was very impressed by what a properly setup wagon can do, enough so that the memory is still fresh this long after the fact!
We've always thought the 510 Wagon is one of the coolest Datsuns in the lineup, and feel that it deserves more love. We believe that there is no reason you can't rock the wagon on the mountain roads or at the track if set up correctly!
Our performance leaf spring pack increases the spring rate by 25% and lowers the rear of the car by 1.5-2", without the use of lowering blocks. This kit can be ordered with 1" or 2" lowering blocks if you should prefer an even lower stance on top of the 2" drop the springs offer.
Our new front spring mount eliminates the large factory rubber bushing and uses a low deflection rubber bushing design to get rid of much of the slop in the rear end. The kit also comes with adjustable height rear shackles and custom urethane bushings at the chassis mount, further increasing responsiveness.
Soon we hope to release a panhard bar and short stroke sport dampers for the rear of the wagon as well, so keep an eye out for those! And in the mean time, long live the wagon love!
