I'm sorry, but I do not know what the part number is. There was no casting or number on the flange.
I figure'd it would be much cheaper if I could've found it from a retail store, rather than custom ordering from D.S.S.

If I can get more information from D.S.S. , I'll post more information about it.

you use the existing abs sensor and something like a Dakota box to generate a signal that the cluster will see as a speedometer input

I am a little late on the conversation, but I just did the same swap, and my axle angle is very off, just bought the GKTech splins to lower the axles, did you have the same problem?, if so how did you did it

what gktech part? how does it lower the axle?

when you say "your axle angle is very off"..... is the diff too high? too low? too far forward? please be more specific. Photos help a lot.

The differential sits lower, so the axles point upwards, the GKTech drop spindles lowered the axles 40mm, I read people having the issue but no solutions, so want to know what people have done to correct the angle and get axle line more straight, sorry tried to download some pics but didn't work

These adapter bushings are no good, lowering the diff approximately 2 inchs from the OE postion making huge angles on lowered cars. The only proper way to run a 350z diff is to mod the subframe.

My friend, drop knuckles DO NOT move the axles. You cannot move the axles outside of the hub center, which is always in the middle of the wheel.
Drop knuckles only move the suspension arm pickup points...

my first suggestion would be to raise the car.

or raise the subframe.

or chop the subframe and raise the diff.

my next question is, considering the axle angle of a stock height 240, then consider the fact that we lower these cars 4-6" or more, how is 1-2" height difference making a huge impact? i'm not sure I understand your problem entirely.

Yes I asked myself the same questions when we drop the cars, the problem apparently comes with the 350z diff, I really appreciate the input, definitely I am cutting the subframe to raise the diff to OEM high. Thank you everybody

The only issue with the high angles is that it puts extra load on the CV joints making them more prone to breaking under load and increases drivetrain drag. This is a big issue with tripod joints like 240 axles but IDK if it applies to rzeppa style like the 350z axles.
