isnt the suspension and the entire read end different? Independent rear vs solid axle...maybe you can use a 510 rear end. Ask triniGT, he'd know

Yeah it is different as apposed to the solid axle , I really wanted a irs to match the engine i have in it. The 910 cant hold the power. At least the way i drive it. LOL. . This is a serious conversion pics will be up of the whole process, hope everything works out fine. i really looking forward to the independent rear end with disc brakes. Then taking it sideways on the tarmac.

DWO will be big in Trinidad. WORD...

For the conversion all the original diff mounts must be cut out.
Another brace to the back has to be put in to hold the s13 subframe
the coilovers i have on need to be adjusted to suite.

We've done this before with a Charmant, and a 910 with a RB25DET. the shock-towers in the bluebird accept the shocks/struts on the independent suspension with no hassle. pm me if anybody needs help.

by Swiftman_Reid
OldSkoolRule,you have any pics or things to look out for.

How the process looking so far PM me. Your advice would be appreciated.

by OldSkoolRule
The 910 sold, the charmant's owner crashed it(write off), but the good thing is, its currently on its side @ his place. if you wanna take a look at how it was done. no pics tho, sorry. maybe i could take a look at your project and give you a hand, one o' my boys is a crackshot welder and we have all necesssary welding equipment.( mig and arc) also in the process of setting up a suspension tuning system specifically for those with coilovers.. gimme a buzz (on 2nd #), is no scene.

Alright we are back in business.
I had to go get my car back from the guy who was doing it Jed hmmm.
Well process taking real long but i looking forward to having it on the road by weekend.

Nothing better than getting your project up and running

The diff is properly mounted the camber arms have been changed to s14 half arms to accommodate the shock. right now some upper plates are being machined and driveshaft adjusted to length.

Image
Rear mounting of subframe to a new brace welded in place(in red)to the chasis of the car.

Image
Had to use the S14 camber arm for the shock to fit due to angle restraints.

Image
This is the front mounting point of the subframe.

Image
This is now how wide the wheels sit on the back. Some flaring must be done
