If you have installed true rear coilovers on your 350Z then the time has come to dispose of your old spring buckets and upgrade to adjustable 350z rear toe arms. We recommend Voodoo13 Rear Toe Arms, they are built with a surprisingly high degree of quality for reasonable prices right here in the USA. Install time is roughly about 1 hour and requires a few tools outlined below.
- Jack and stands
- Two breaker bars
- 19&17mm sockets
- Rubber Mallet (optional)
- Beer of choice
Start by getting your ride up in the air and placing stands on both sides to ensure proper safety. Begin by breaking the seal on the rear spring bucket bolt with a 19mm and a 17mm socket. The bolt is also secured by a grooved locking washer on the side of the 17mm nut. I ended up stripping some of the center bolt before I was able to hammer the bolt out of the washer, so it is a good idea to take some care when removing the rear bolt.
Once the rear bolt is removed begin working on the front bolts, it should easily come out. You can now unscrew the C clamp from the new rear adjustable toe arm and place it above the knuckle. If it does not easily slide over use the rubber mallet to edge it into place. It should look like the following below. Once the C clamp is spaced properly you can remove it and thread it back into the toe arm.
Secure the rear toe arm bolt first and set the proper distance for your car. Swing the front C clamp up and over the knuckle joint and using the rubber mallet again hammer it down into place. The length of the toe arm should allow for the bolt to slide through the hole with a couple of taps from the mallet. Tighten the adjusting bolts on the toe arm to lock it into place and your all set. Now you just have to do the other side in the same order.
