Now that it's off, i kinda miss the stiffness while cornering, might need to look into stiffer springs up front!

Just crazy......I had all three on both sides! During a drive back from downtown today I was saying to myself "WTF was someone thinking make the ride so stiff", but once again I just tacked it up to track intentions. As far as a lawsuit goes, if someone came in to a corner too hard the intended braking dip would not be there thus you would be skating on rubber. I hope someone at Nissan and more importantly NISMO is watching this thread!
Great find and thank you!

Just checked my car last weekend, low and behold they were there. Just the ones on the inside. Thanks to the forum I didn't find them miles later once I jacked up the car. Vehicle was purchased from Tonkin Nissan in Oregon, though it was Nissan of the Eastside in Bellevue WA that did the PDI.

Wow i cant believe that all these nismos have them on there. My car was in the shop for a week so when i read this i couldnt go and check. But i just got it back from the body shop and sure enough they were there. But not just one on each side but three on each side! I was like really? So i took it back to the dealer and let them know that they should look at the other ones they sell. Thanks for this and good looking out

62 miles into my new Nismo and knew something was not right about the suspension. Looked at mine tonight and there they are - 3 on each side! Time for the floor jack!

My dealer gave me a $300 credit for service/accessories so turns out it wasn't that bad. Doesn't take but a minute to get them off once you get the wheel of the ground.

Its not a bad idea to make the dealerships perform the work. Like bobapooluza mentioned, you never know what you deal or special you might be able to work out.

Thanks for posting this, mine had them too. I asked while still at the dealer so they put it up on the rack and pulled them, and then double-checked everything else.

Removed two from mine. I thought some bumps felt very harsh. Thanks for posting this though.
