I had the same issue. Two spacers on the front spring towards the engine fire wall. I bought a 2013 Magma Red Nismo with 40 miles from a Nissan dealer in Boston on April 11, 2015. The dealership could not sale the car. I got 14k off the MSRP. I went home and thanks to this forum looked for spacers and found them still installed. Sent photos to the dealership to let them know this is why they had a hard time selling this car. Suggested the mechanics look closer at the post delivery check sheet.

That's part of the dealer prep also, they use to have yellow stickers on the tires near the valve stems to remind everyone to set the tire pressure.

I just bought a new 2014 Nismo. I flew out from Boston to Michigan because of the deal and drove the car back to Boston. I informed the dealer about the 3 spacers in each front suspension and they confirmed they removed them all. I asked them to double check they pulled them out of the back as sometimes they are tough to see. Again they confirmed, all set..

I piced up the car and drove 800 miles to buffalo and notice the ride is a bit stiffer than I remember in my 350 nismo. Sure enough I look up the car and there is one spacer in the back on each side. Fortunately a nissan dealer in Buffalo took them out for me at no charge.

My question is... is my suspenion going to be screwed up going forward? Did this do any permenant damage or will I be ok.

Also, not sure if it's the car or a suspension issue but the car seems to veer on upstate NY backroads. I may have to check the tire pressure though.

I've also noticed when I manhandled the car and drive more agressively the car performs much better, but when I'm not it feels like minivans are blowing by me/out handling me.

Am I crazy/paranoid or is it just the Nismo excels in higher in the Rev band and is a bit of a dog at 2-3k rpms on back roads.

Thanks for any insight/advice guys

When I bought my Nismo. it was used with 7,000 miles on it. It still had all 3 spacers in each spring. So I think you will be find.

The Nismo doesn't start making power until about 3,500 rpm.

As to veering. The Nismo likes to tramline because of the wide front tires. You should feel what it's like with 275's on the front.

Awesome! Thanks for the reply, I feel much better about it now. I do have to say it's pretty amazing the linear and powerful pull you get when you do stomp on it. You're doing 100 before you know it.

You won't have any suspension issue. I bought my car used with 19,000 miles on it. It still had 2 each in the front springs. LOL
