Default Fortune auto 500 series coilovers

Nobody really on MyG37.com runs these coilovers so I was hoping my brothers here can help me out.

I was thinking of running KW V3's on my G but decided to go a bit cheaper and put the extra cash saved twords an exhaust.

Anyone here know anything? Also they have a SWIFT spring upgrade I was thinking about getting. Anyone running that setup?

They look real clean:


SWIFT upgrade:



thanks guys

They are more reliable because they are "dyno tuned" to your needs...

Many coils below 1500 are not "dyno tuned" their for discredited for track use and labeled as "junk"

Have you looked at pricing? They may seem cheap but get expensive fast...my last quote was 1600+ with swift springs...

1600 with Swifts? That's not too bad. I'm waiting on this GroupBuy to take place and see a price on it.

I've got two sets sitting in my garage waiting to go on my dad's 350 and my 370. We both got the 500's with Swift upgrades. They'll be installed on both cars next month so I will be able to give you my first impression. Build quality looks superb.

They've been around for a while.

Not a Z chassis, but for the S chassis, there tends to be some positive reviews:

You guys are convincing me more, and more to go with these. I've been looking at the reviews on the older Z forums and so far im impressed

I dont understand why more G37's and 370Z's are not running em though

I know the Z33 guys love them. There was a guy at zdayz that convinced me and my pops to get them. He had nothing but great things to say about them and was tearing up the dragon all week on his.

Hey sfearl1 are these camber adjustable? I purchased the Front and Rear SPC camber kit, but from the pictures it looks like it has camber plates. I guess the bulk of my statement is:

Will I need my front and rear SPC kit?

I'm running rear SPC camber arms right now with Swift springs, and plan on keeping/using them with the coils. I don't think I'll need front arms with the coils but we will see. Hopefully that answers your question.

Thanks sfear. Yea since I have em I might as well keep em. I was thinking about re-selling them but if it might need it, than I might as well just run em.
