Thanks man.

So far I've been pleased with them. I'll be able to give a much better review after running them at AMP next week. For cruising around town and spirited runs on the Dragon this year I've had zero complaints. I am really anxious to see how they do on the track.

If you get them on the Black Friday sale it's a great deal. I had planned on saving up for some KWv3's but decided to give these a shot. So really comes down to your desired use and how much your willing to spend.

Too me the Swift springs are the perfect drop for a lowering spring. And a very compliant ride. The way it should of came factory. Add some Koni Yellow shocks and it's perfect.

Coilovers will provide more adjustability to dial it all in but running inch lower than the Swift springs made it a PITA when driving it around town. Every speed bump and entry point became a challenge.

Just an option if you aren't wanting to slam it on coilovers the Swifts and/or Koni's might be what you are looking for.

Oh I see so the highest this will go its lower than swifts? ....Yeah that might be an issue for me lol roads here in jersey suck...I was thinking for the price of konis plus swifts I could get a good inexpensive set of coilovers that are good like these lol...BTW will u be at z nationals?

These will go as high as stock ride height. Just depends on what your needs are and how much you want to spend.

Yea I'll be at Z Nationals.

If all goes well sir, I plan to join you next year and rock this track day action. Looks like an absolute blast.

Also - I want to steal your intake.

Hit me up sometime. Maybe we can do lunch. I'm officially all the way back in town.

After you do one track day you will begin modding your Z for the track. It is an awesome experience. Pretty much all I care to do with it now.

Kind of using that intake at the moment. But I can get you in touch with some reputable sellers .

Welcome back. You should roll to IA this Saturday in Nashville. If I get my Z back to street trim I plan on making it up there. I will hit you up as soon as I have a phone that works. Mine died today apparently while TDY for work.

Side note. You should screen cap your last post. It was #370.
