Default Third Z ! First 370Z !!

Hey guys! Picked up my first 370z today ! And couldnt be happier !! Although I am getting a thud coming from the rear in between shifts, Im thinking since its common the diff bushings go on these that its the culprit, thoughts?

Otherwise I love the car, wonderful upgrade from my 350's ! Its a 2010 with 77,000 mi on it !



(I've attached a pic of the rear bushing)

Nice pickup!!

Good you got the Sport Pack.... canít see buying a Z34 without it given that it barely adds anything to the price in the secondary market.

Sorry, no clue on the clunk without driving it but sounds logical for it to be the diff bush.

Great looking car and congratulations! Yep, that oem bushing looks toast; check into the Whiteline bushing kits and say goodbye to those crappy oil filled ones (did mine a few months ago)! *I think these replacements will be more and more common as the Z's age. That little dark streak below and the cracks in the bushing looks like it ruptured and that oil drained out a long time ago.

THANKS ! Yeah those were my thoughts as well, I could poke my finger into it, so some white line diff bushings are on the way !!
