Dude... I just removed mine today after reading the post. Great find!!! Stupid F'rs at Nissan. Can't believe it. I had all 3 on the right and left springs. Can't wait to drive it tomorrow. Was curious why it was soo god damn stiff. Moto, you're not the only douche.

HAHAHAHAHA...I can think of worst things to be!

I'm cracking up here. I'm supposed to be catching up on emails but I'm getting a huge kick out of the threads tonight. I can't recall the last time I even heard the term Douche Bag....still laughing!

Sounds like my joke that Nissan screwed up on the spring rates and just added plastic spacers to "firm up the ride"

I almost went off on the dealership when I got mine removed yesterday.

After my car was given back to me, I asked if they removed the spacers. The supervisor told me "There were none on the fronts, but 1 in the rear was removed so you're good now".

I laughed, and pointed out that the 2 on my front that were there earlier were no longer there, and that's it's funny that one in the rear was removed since there are none in the rear.

She went back into the shop and came back out and admitted she pretty much just made all that up.

Not only am I not going to this dealer for normal maintenance, I will no longer be going back for ANYTHING, even warranty stuff. I will be going to the dealership 30+ miles away should any warranty issues arise.

Sunbelt Nissan in Augusta, GA.

I'm writing a letter to Nissan this week about the dealer. It's pretty sad everything I've been through so far with this POS dealer.

Wow I feel lucky to not really make it on the douche-radar finding this after only 10 days of ownership. Thanks for jumping on the sword for me fellas by leaving them on longer lol.

All kidding aside, if Nissan had been better about communicating this to dealers and/or the lacky lube/PDI techs were better trained we would not have to deal with this. Maybe I should link this post on an email to Nissan. I'm sure there is a % of owners who don't participate on the forum who have this problem and don't even know it.

OMG! Man, you gt to be kidding me. I just went out to the Garage and checked out the whip. I looked when I bought my car in Aug but was looking in the wrong spot. I still have mine on there too! Guess what I'm doing tomorrow? Time for some testing....

This is SOOOO crazy!

Imagine the lawsuit that could stem from this if it tied to an accident. Not sure that it would but just shows you how irresponsible some of these Mechanics are. $80-90 an hour for these guys...comedy!
