I'm not sure what part you don't understand in that I do not have the discretionary funds to drop 1500 bucks on front upper control arms- especially after purchasing others already. I'm too far in to...

Another thing I've learned... in reading various suspension threads, I've noticed a number of guys mentioning they have weird suspension noises that weren't there before lowering. Specifically, I've...

Ok, hold on... I had to put the arms in and set them so that I could drive to the alignment shop. I couldn't pay a shop to install arms that I can readily do myself. It's like 2-3 bolts per arm- not...

I think I've finally come to realize my problem was the bolt which holds the camber arm in place (the side with the bushing). I didn't want to install the SPC toe bolts because I really have no...

I have no use for solid bushings in my car. It's daily driven, not a track monster. SPL parts are complete overkill for my application.

I never did install the SPC rear toe bolts (yet). I figured since I'm only lowered on swift springs, I wouldn't need them. What's more is, I don't understand how the toe went so far out on one side...

Help with rear toe!!

Ok, I've been having one hell of a time getting my suspension done. It really shouldn't be this complicated, yet time after time I keep having issues!

Front suspension squeak

I recently installed some swift springs on my car, and now I have this horrendous squeak coming from the front suspension now- I remember reading about this somewhere on the forum, but I haven't been...

Alternatively, you could also beef up the front tire width. That will help with understeer also. I believe this is why guys often run square tire setups at the track.

I've heard getting a beefier front sway bar will cure the understeer. Apparently the rear sway bar is fine as-is, but the front could use some beefing up. Two options- Eibach or Hotchkiss. The...

Sigh... I ended up going with Cooper Zeon RS3-S tires.

I was able to get them in 325s and admittedly, they were cheap as ****.

I get the feeling these tires kind of suck (who buys coopers?),...

This really chaps my ***. This would've been my third set of RE-11s/RE-11As. By far my all around favorite tire, to date. No idea why they scrapped them altogether. Sigh.

I'll do some looking into...

Tires won't impact your camber. The lowering springs will. If you have no camber issues after putting the Swift springs on, you'll be fine.

I've heard the Swift springs are a modest enough drop...

Technically, that was the 300zx

I hope they don't call it the 400Z... wtf does the 400 stand for? The number was always based on engine displacement, even when it was twin turbo'd.

And final question regarding this setup...

So no spacers are required, if running the 285F and 325R, on Nismo wheels... if anything, maybe a 5mm spacer up front. Nothing for the rear.

For those...

What drone did you use to film the aerial footage? And was there a 4th person operating the drone, or was it set in a "follow" mode?

That doesn't really answer the question, though. I'm more concerned about having a 325, with that much extra meat, on a 10.5" wheel, in the back. It's different having the 325 on a 12" wide back...

How would 19x9.5 ET22 and 19x10.5 ET20 look, with 265s and 285s, respectively? I feel like the front would be ok, but the rear might need like a 5mm spacer? Thoughts? Should I up the tire size? 275...
