Noob time!

so, can I assume that in regards to a 370z base, the NISMO springs are the same/simular ride height as stock springs then?? was thinking about picking up a set of NISMO springs for my girls new 370z base, but was hoping for a subtle drop (like .1 to .5 inch) with a little "sportier" feel.... :iono:

If I recall correctly, the S-tune Nismo springs are supposed to lower 0.4in (some say front rides higher?), but not sure about the OEM Nismo.

RS-R can be added to the list:

RS-R Down Sus Lowering Springs
FRONT: 0.4-0.6'' REAR: 0.4-0.6''
FRONT: 8.15kg REAR: 8.87kg

Getting a Ti2000 set installed on Friday, will see where they settle

Did you install these yet? If so, how is it driving around the Bronx at that height? Driving on roads like the Bronx River and Bruckner makes me not want to lower this car...

Safe to assume swift spring on oem sport shocks is relatively "safe" and won't blow em out sooner than later. Also will it scrape everywhere if I do this?

Dang b4 I almost forget. Best place to buy these swift springs? Also what type am I looking for or is it just swift springs for 370z? Do the rates and loss differ?

Early shock failure will happen eventually But the determining factor is the amount of drop, use, types of roads, and such the failure may happen sooner than later, But it will eventually happen.

Look at springs being a cheap way to drop it till you replace them with actual coil overs that should last as long as the stock shocks because they were designed with the car being dropped.

I hope that made sense
