You're the man, really appreciate all the guidance so far. I've learned over my many car and bike ventures, let the guys with the big air tools and lifts do this kind of stuff. I'd rather avoid bloody knuckles and a bent radiator (just about ruined a 800 radiator on my camaro build)

I owe you a burger at the Fontana Meet

I am not familiar enough with 370's, but I know that some cars do not run well with stock shocks and lower springs. The shocks are outside their designed working height. With the Audi I owned, the shocks usually blew w/in 10K miles. It was a VERY common failure. But I have no (and I mean ZERO) experience with this on Nissans. Just food for thought.

The g37 has been out for 2+ years and many have these eibach springs. Nothing bad happened and no mentioning of any issues so far.
