R34 GTT OEM Shock Absorbers

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Although i am in the UK, hoping you guysc an help me out with identifying some OEM shock absorbers i can get for my R34 GTT.
I tried looking at the KYB & Monroe website for OEM parts (i got a standard R34 GTT) , but nothing shows up  :(

I cant imagine the the GTT has specific shock absorbers that no other car uses  (I wonder, given the rear brake rotors on the GTT are the same as the Z32  300zx/Fairlady , wonder if the shocks are ?? )
Trying to either find the Nissan OEM number, or the KYB part number for the shocks, or any standard OEM spec shocks i can use ?

Any ideas ?

Do you want to be cheap? Or do you want to buy decent dampers? Because Bilstein B6 is the minimum that I would recommend for direct fit dampers.

Nothwithstanding that, I just typed "r34 kyb rear" into google and the first 2 hits were for an eBay listing and the actual web shop of this crowd here in Oz offering this https://www.superspares.com.au/2-rear-kyb-new-sr-special-shock-absorbers-for-niss~12193763

cheers for reply, not looking for cheap, just oem (standard car).....
I found the original part numbers last night, and the SR range of KYB for the R34 GTT  (same as your link)..

The idea was to buy OEM shocks, and add my Tein S springs to the shocks (already bought the springs before my pal told me i got x2 leaky shocks) .....
Being in the UK, coilovers are easier to obtain that shocks!

Those Bilsteins above are for the GT with eyelet bottom. The GTT has fork bottom, like the GTR. But you can get B6s and B8s for GTRs, so I can't see that there would be too much trouble getting one for the GTT. I mean, superficially, you could just put the GTR one in. It will fit.

cheers guys
Turns out, i need to send my springs back to the supplier, and get coilovers instead...
And yes,I was looking at OEM (nissan), or a manufacturer that made OEM spec shocks for the car..
As said, mine is standard, but at the same time, was trying to keep my costs less when buying shock absorbers, compared with buying Coilovers....

The B6 & KYB SR shocks, even the Nissan OEM shocks = cost more than Tein Street Advance Coilovers.....
So end result is, i need to switch anyway....
Cheers for the replies though guys :)

    • You’ll need an aftermarket ecu to do any of what you asked about.    platinum racing products makes a crank trigger setup for the single cam rb30 engine.    LS coils would br a good choice as they’re cheap and plentiful, then run leads from them to the spark plugs 
    • Hey Guys thank you for the replies, very much appreciated
    • Hey All,  Hope everyone is well. Long story short, Bought a 2001 Mazda 121 Metro (Small Size Little Japanese Demon) with the most underpowered motor and feel, but still at a minimum a fun car, which makes a 60 zone feel like a space shuttle launch. The few questions I have are, one, got two oil leaks. One is coming from the sump plug (probably incorrect terminology), and another further behind. I was wondering since it is FWD if this could be trans or something else but got no clue, been underneath but a new oil leak started today but could be aircon or something i don't understand. I know one is defo engine oil, but the other, i didn't have time to check. If anyone is from Perth and has some time or interested (which i doubt anyone is) I'd owe them a life debt to look at the nugget. Two, I am deciding if I am going to be a dickhead as per usual and cut the exhaust just before the muffler on the final 90 degree bend and stick it under the car and point it towards the underside of the side-skirt. The internal questions inside this are, one, if the pipe doesn't stick down or though the side skirt will it cause exhaust gases to pool underneath the car (close to fuel tank) and do i keep the muffler to f**k the cops off or do i just send it? Three, my final stupid question. Now i know all of you hate pod filters and they are useless, but the pod filter i've added is definitely better than the stock 30mm pipe of airflow that the air-box was connected to. I have absolutely sketched the daylights out of this by finding out that adding a pod involves attaching pod to maf, and then i discovered an air temp sensor which i may or may not have drilled into my stock intake pipe and just plugged and walked away (yes i know it is bad and it is my first car sooo, sketchy is all i've got). To resolve this, I have got 3 inch tubing which will connect all fine (i've tested it) and made sure it plugs all together with the OEM parts, instead of the 2 inch tube. This new tubing is mainly stainless steel with silicon joining pieces and a somehow very well non-sketchy hole with a rubber seal for the air temp sensor ( i know, how advanced!). Anyway, back to the problem, the connection pipe i have made doesn't fit in the car.. , so does anyone have any ideas about how to go about keeping the pod, with new piping? Anyway sorry for the headache that is this nugget, but, have to learn on a trash car to do something bigger... Thanks all Billy
    • ighty so my distributor shat the bed the other day and considering that the last owner had already done some work to the dizzy, I thought its not a bad idea to upgrade to a new system.  ive done a good amount of research across the web/forums on different ignition system that can be used but I've still got a lot of questions left unanswered. Can the coil packs that suit an RB20det or RB26det/25 or NEO"s fit into the rb30 N/A, because i was thinking about running spitfire coil packs "DIS 008 or DIS 001" (not sure if theirs room for them under the intake manifold or if theirs a reason they cant be run on non turbos idk sounds stupid),  What wasted spark systems can i fit up to my dirty 31, and do i need to set up a new ECU to run it (im running stock ECU) Finally i'm doing this to increase reliability, to get better efficiency at high rev and maybe a little bit of fuel economy, but is it worth converting ignition systems, i.e. can i achieve these same traits from an after market distributor and some tampering here and there.... also its safe to say different ignition systems are illegal on p plates?   yeah any help or comments of this will be f**king legendarily helpful
