Default Z suspension

Went to the Nissan Dealer in Glendale today. They took out the transport spacer, three on each side. I can't believe I drove the car for 11 months with out knowing why the car was so stiff. Rides very nice now. Dealer is willing to give me some extras for free.

I used a floor jack, too the car up 2 or 3 inches and they came out quite easily. I can't even imagine how many test drives were driven with these still on the car!

found all 6 of them (3 on both sides)

oh btw for all future/present nismo owners, make sure you check the tire psi also...

my tires were at 45psi all around (tire reads 40psi max and factory recommendation was 35psi) so after I put them at around 36psi all around the ride become dramatically smoother and more comfortable...

I've had my Nismo for a month now. It was an 09 that never got sold. But when I went to jack up my car to look for the spacers in the front. I found just one on the front right side.

Are there any in the back? No one has answered this yet. If there are, how do you get to them to remove them?

Update to my comment about all four corners:

After jacking up the rear and thoroughly inspecting it, I could not find any in the back.
(4) in the front, there are two on each side. One was visible, the other had rotated all the way to the back side of the spring, so it was hiding.
Reach around to see if you feel it. If not, then they probably removed it from the pdi or they never come with them.

The way to check the rear, is jack it up or lay flat and look. Feel around the spring. It should just be a coil.

I had none on the back just like you. Just one on front.

On my rear bumper, it's only being held onto the car in the middle with one pop rivet. There should be 2 other pop rivets attached to a bracket on either side of the central bracket. I went to a dealership that has 2 Nismo's and they have 3 pop rivets holding the bumper on. I'm going back where I bought mine and asking what the deal is? I doubt very much the factory forgot to connect the other 2 brackets. My crap is just hanging there. The other 2 brackets I mean.

Why would they not be attached to the bumper? Unless someone pulled it off to repaint it I think. I think there is something the dealership is not telling me.

Another good tip, that's the first thing I did after I drove it home and let the tires cool down.
