Default Questions on Nismo Suspension?? Coilovers??

So Im planning to lower my nismo but Im not sure which coilovers are best for a Nismo 370z. I found some coilovers for the base 370z but I dont know if it being a nismo even matters. But I was looking around for coilvers specifically made for our cars. and i find this
Hudson Nissan | Nissan 370Z NISMO Suspension Strut and Spring Kit
Do we already have this in our cars or we have to buy these separate?? Judging on how much it can be lowered, these dont seem worth it.
Anybody know whats the best coilovers out there?? If not, I might just save up for bags and bag this thing to get slammed

That's the OEM factory suspension on the Nismo edition Zs, you don't want those if you want to go lower. You can get coilovers from other suppliers like Tein or KW. If you browse the classifieds under the supporting vendors for sale ads you can find a set of coilovers from the vendors at a great price.

I have Fortune 500 with Swift springs and I love them. I also upgrade my sway bars as well and the performance is significantly better!

That looks like the S-Tune Nismo springs/struts, which are different than OEM Nismo springs/struts. S-tune is actually lower by the 10mm vs the OEM Nismo which is just firmer but same height as sport.

If you decide, I would try here, lowest price I've seen for S-tune

I have Eibach's, they are not as stiff as Hotchkiss but just stiffer than Whitelines. All three are good bars, it just depends on how much you want to spend and what your goal is with your car.

Umm, no homeslice, them sh!ts are the same as stock Nismo stuff. They are supposed to lower the car .4" if it's thrown on a base model. Having a Nismo will not determine what you can run compared to a normal Z. If you're just looking for a drop, buy some Swifts and call it a day. If you want the adjustability, then some decent coils should be good. Just do not buy what you already have!

Even if the part numbers are different, they're going to be 99.9% the same. 10mm is .4in. For that kind of money, it's not even worth thinking about.
