The suspension parts I want to buy say "excluding convertible", can I still use them?Yes you can! The convertible is slightly heavier than the coupe and fastback so it will ride slightly lower on the same suspension parts. (But that's not a bad thing!)
zerothread/200644

Where can I find replacement parts for my 240sx convertible?Start at a Nissan dealership of course, though it's very likely that they either won't have the parts, or if they do, they will be very expensive. Other great places to find parts include: Ebay, 240sxconvertible.com, NICOclub classifieds, car-parts.com, and possibly your local auto parts store.
