Thanks for posting this. I need to check mine out too. I thought the suspension felt a little off. It was stiff but didn't handle that great compared to my s14 with coilovers.

Nissan used something similar to these on other Nissan models too. On my '92 Slicktop 300zx I found that I had these on my rear struts after 208,000 miles. When I added the TEIN coilovers I noticed that they were on there and did not know what they were for at first. Apparently Nissan has had a problem with this for nearly a decade now.Lol.

Good find btw.

Yeah they are alot smaller. They are about 1" wide and are about 4" ~ 5" long. I joked because they resemble a set of Rubber Brass Knuckles.

We see quite a few Z32's come thru here with them still attached.

3 months and 1900 miles later... Add another member to the d-bag list. I just went out to the garage and looked. I saw at least one on either side. Going to the dealer this weekend. Thanks for the tip.

I've decided to open a shop. Its a suspension shop but all we do is remove these stupid damn spacers. We dont sell parts, just do simple fixes to Nismo's.

So...$500 and I'll guarantee you a better ride. Please book ahead as we are really busy fixing dumb as Mechanics Oversights. Yes, the same ones you paid 500-1000 or more for Freight and Set up.

Its funny yet frustrating how widespread this is.
