I have scrapped 3 already.

I was driving the '88 until recently, but the power steering pump is shot and I haven't had time to swap it out. I'll probably pull it from the '86.

If anyone is looking for parts, let me know. I've been meaning to post a note on this for a while.
i need the windshield wiper hose retaining clip, because my clip broke and my hose sags and i can't spray wiper fluid, also do you have leather seats(front and back complete sets) for my 88 max, i'm about to get it reupholstered it's expensive i'm needing grey colored seats. also i'm looking for the clear door panel covers(4) my drivers side door panel (grey) is loose i guess from where it was being slammed by the inside door handle, my max is the 88, pm me prices (both individual, and group prices) if you have any of these items. g

I believe when I had my suspension re-done a couple of years ago,the bushings were all upgraded to urethane,mostly 300ZX parts from Moog,if my memory serves me correctly.

This is the list of stuff that I used to do coilovers on my 85 SE

Cheep coilover kit (ebay)
universal camber plates (ebay)

top hats from https://technotoytuning.com/
22mm Front with bearings $60 pair
20mm Back, flat top hat $20 pair

new mounts for the back due to the smaller shaft



NOTES:
camber plates- you will have to drill your own holes
coilover kit- might want to get the ones with the shorter sleeves for the front, I have to cut the sleeve down to be able to drop more then just a couple inches, I haven't bottomed out yet and have hit some speed bumps kinda hard just to check, I have them set so that control arms are parallel with ground, can go down about 2 in (haven't taken a tape to it just eyeballing) more but then the top of the sleeve will be almost against the top hat......

They doesn't offer the bushings alone (believe me, I seemed, and no one could tell me for sure if the ones from the 89-94 Maxima would fit), so you'll have to buy the hyperlinks. There are two - one flexible, and one not. They are about $145 for the two, but you have to get them straight from Car. I wasn't able to discover them anywhere else. I examined all the significant (and not so major) car area locations and they all informed me that I have to go to Car to get it.

2nd Gen Rear Struts

1987 Maxima Rear Struts--I'm replacing my rear struts and have the top nuts removed and the linkage at the bottom disconnected, as well as the caliper. How does the strut come out of the rear cast at the bottom??

Just figured it out...The struts go inside the tubes!!
