Default Lowering springs

Hey guys I couldn't find any research on this.. But i was considering lowering springs, any suggestions as to whats a good brand worth my money?
Or are they all pretty much the same thing? I used to have tein on my previous car. Any thoughts on how those might hold up in the Z?

Mannnn I don't know I've looked this up a dozen times and there are tons of threads on this already. I don't have any but a lot of people seem to like swift springs. There are a lot more other options as well out there.

Really????! I couldnt find anything what do you type in the search engine? Ive kept trying, and like you said, swift sounds like there good. But thats all ive found. It was a review someone did on the forum. They sound promising.

more people have swapped out FROM something else to Swifts than any other... Swifts are the best followed up by going to coilovers next if you want more control....

Teins are a little softer than the Swifts. Check out Chinook on line. He has a set of Teins for dirt cheap I think. He swapped out to Swifts earlier this year....

he actually said the complete opposite. especially since the tein springs have the highest spring rates.


"Just switched my Tein springs for the Swifts last weekend and I find them to be a lot better for driving and comfort!"
