Shocks, springs, sway bars, coliovers, bushings, brakes, wheels, tires - This is the place to discuss G-Series suspension modifications!
Has anyone been able to improve the ride on a g37s by changing the struts, springs or tires? This is my second one an 11 and I had an 09. It is a great handling car but on freeway expansion joint or rough pavement it is terible. I was wondering if going with a different tire will help at all? What about the tokico struts? I want the handling but I need a better ride quality.

I have a 2009 G37S...do you have the sport option? Tires do have an impact on road feel. I went with Conti Extreme DWS and they are much better then OEM.
A few members have put on aftermarket suspension components...but honestly I'm happy with my Sport suspension so I haven't paid much attention to it.

Going to aftermarket springs will usually make things worse. My BC's are more stiff and I have even lower rated springs in the rear than their kit comes with. The G35 Tein H-Techs do make for a softer ride than the sport springs but they drop the car 2", will cause tires to wear inside prematurely and you will be scraping the underside of the car going over big bumps and speed bumps.
