2015 Nismo lowered on stock wheels? pics and setups.

Hi, so from what I’ve read so what been told and seen so far that springs tend to loosen up the ride? For a more accurate drop coils or bags

I’m in the same situation as HIZZY.. I love the stiffness of the nismo. My winter beater has H&R race springs and I love it.

Not looking for a drastic drop but enough to keep the stiff/race like ride.

Coilovers are a great way to go. My M7 Japan coillvers to me make my car much more enjoyable. I feel like the valving or something is off on the nismo suspension. That too bouncy feel annoyed me personally.

My car handles a lot better now with much less body roll as well.

Bro you gotta cut that thing out of the front fender!! I cut mine out and took old credit cards and wrapped in matte black vinyl and then bought tiny black screws and created a plastic plate to cover it... looked so legit and you cant even see it.

I do things you cant even see top notch. Some say waste of time. To me well worth it

Keep in mind, what Volk did may take a little more time and may seem to some as overboard but it's all about the details. Even as small as some are.

My front tabs also rubbed off due to low ride height + aggressive front fitment

Had a bodyshop "fix" it. They fabbed up a little bracket that solved the issue, tight fitment now, no gap, won't fall apart
