Lowering the car and balance
Hey guys, I'm looking to lower my Z and was wondering if any of you that have done lowered your nismo with Swift Spec-R springs?
My main concern is the balance of the car.. In my previous cars it has taken me lots of trial n error to get my desired balance on the car.. I honestly LOVE the way the stock suspension handles and how easy it is to control at the limit.. For experienced drivers: does the balance of the car alter with swift springs or not? Basically my perfect situation would be lower stance and same exact performance...
Also, i'm not sure what the height difference is between the nismo springs and the regular z springs but they lower 1.25" font and 1" rear for the regular Z so i was wondering how low does that translate in comparison with nismo..

You will be pretty slammed. The Nismo is already slightly lower than the regular & sport Z; I'm lowered 1" in the front and 0.5" in the rear (perfect IMO relative to wheel gap front and rear) and receive comments all the time about how low my car looks. The performance will be affected somewhat, you will negate the function of the Yamaha body dampers as they were specifically tuned for the stock suspension.
