How to keep hood up

You have small gas charged shocks that are supposed to support the weight of the hood that have probably lost their charge and need replaced. Until you can get them replaced you can find a bar, or piece of wood that is the right length or cut to length to prop the hood up, or you can clamp a pair of vice grips to the shaft of one of the bad shocks to keep it from going down on you.

How to give your Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo more sporting handling

Here's a quick way to set your 300ZX up for more responsive handling. You can leave it this way permanently, or just do it for autocross days or a nice day that has you itching for some fun.

The car has two-position shock settings - sport and touring. To give the car a more lively, tossable handling feel, set the shocks in the Touring position, then open the hood, unplug the actuators on top of the front shocks, and close the hood. Get back in, flick the switch to Sport, and hit the road. This way, your front shocks are set soft (Touring) but the rears are stiffened up in Sport, which will make your car a little more tail-happy and willing to rotate in the turns. Enjoy:)

Probably have bad hood struts/shocks that hold it up. These can be obtained at the usual discount parts stores(Kragen,Autozone, Checker,etc) Usually just pop off on one end of a ball mount and unbolt the other after you have propped up hood. These shocks go bad from time or fluid leaks.

These are quite simple. The generally fasten with clips both at top and bottom. Replacements are readily available at general auto stores like O'reilly or Checker.

Have someone help, hold up the hood or prop with a sturdy stick. Unclip both top and bottome slip old shock off and slide new one in. Do for both sides.

Let me know if there are further complications that I'm not considering, but usually this is quite simple. I've also found at some stores like Checker, if you as for some help with these things, the nice man will come out and give you a hand.

How to remove front shocks

first lift the car and put jack stands on the frame just behind where the lower control arms attach. Then go under the hood with a deep well socket and an extension or two and loosen the top bolts. Then take off the front tires and there will be two bolts on the bottom of the shock you have to hold the nuts under side of the axle. I think all the tools for the shocks are 13mm iirc from the last time i did mine
