2011 370z Touring w/Sport 6MT

Just thought I throw together a short thread to document the life and times of my 370z. I don't have any major plans with the car, but the modding force is strong in me.. so you never know!

Picked up some Ichiba 20mm bolt-on spacers from a local shop!
Install was easy, but it seemed like the ichiba bolts weren't fully seated.
I torqued them down until they felt solid, then re-torqued them to 80. All seems good so far and the offset is just about perfect with the stock sport wheels!

Some pics to show the offset at stock height.

So these have been sitting in my garage since the 10/27 (Thanks KamiSpeed!) and I've been too lazy.. err, busy to get them in. I should have just installed them during the spacer install. I'm hoping to get them in sometime this weekend. We shall see

I started working on the install on Thursday night and only managed to finish the front passenger side. That lower shock bolt was a pain! My spring compressor also had a problem fitting the swift springs.

The driver-side should be easier now that I've struggled figuring things out. I'm hoping to have some time tomorrow to finish the job.

On a separate note, I LOVE my impact wrench! Don't know why I didn't get one sooner!

Found some time this morning to finish installing the swift springs. The front driver's side was much easier than the passenger side and the rears were a breeze!

Haven't had a change to really push it yet, but the install feels solid with no popping or creaking. I'm working in napa tomorrow so I'll get a change to thoroughly flog the z through some mountain twisties.

Anyhow, here's a pic to show the new stance. I must say that It's about perfect and the offset with the spacers really complete the look.

Thanks guys! I've got a couple more mods planned, but I'd like to keep it fairly mild. My
intent is to have a very commute-friendly fun car with some track reliability bits.
Anyhow, up next is an exhaust that should make it to my doorstep before Christmas. I don't know if I can wait that long without modding though!

so i thought I should go get an alignment before my tires started showing signs of camber wear from the recent swift spring drop. I was hoping they'd be able to get me closer to stock on the rear than they did, but It's definitely better than it was I guess.

I'm thinking camber kits are in my near future..

Here's the results: (11/18/2011)
