lowering kit

Postby Infiniti_Nutt » Wed Feb 23, 2011 12:28 pm

Im thinking about putting the eibach pro-kit on my my 07 G sedan. Wondering if any one has that set up and could u post some pics so I can see what it looks like :naughty: Also do I need to do anything other then the springs to not efect the ride quality? Any suggestion on what will look best. I don't want to slam it but I do want it to be noticeable.(not such a big gap)
thanks

The ride will not be rougher since Eibach uses progressive rate springs. I've had the springs on my car for almost 50K miles and still on the stock shocks as well.

I have been considering usign the pro-kit also. as far as camber kits, is it absolutely necessary to get a camber kit? and which camber kit would be recommended?

edit:

since this has not been answered yet, i am also thinking of picking up a set up used sport springs.

will springs from a 2011 g37s fit my 08 g35 journey? what is the difference in ride height? would camber kits be necessary here as well.

thanks everyone.

The camber kit should not be necessary, but really can't tell until you drop the car and see where the alignment specs fall. If one is necessary, I would recommend the eibach.

I don't think the 11' sport springs are going to drop the car anymore than what you have now. The ride maybe stiffer, but ride hide should be equal.

i see. shouldnt one G of similar year/style be the same as the other? in other words, if one G need the camber kit, i would imagine all would.

Red Det, PM regarding the pro-kit and that GT SPEC strut bar we have previously spoken about.

I want to do the springs, but I have not found anywhere that will install them less than $60/wheel. thats crazy.

In theory that should be accurate. I haven't gone to a camber kit and I'm even lower than I was before with the coilovers.

I would install the springs your self and save a few bills. All you need is a spring compressor that you can rent from autozone for $40 and a couple hours of your time.

time is one of the things Im afraid I do not have. i do not have an air compressor and impact wrench/air ratchet so it would be all hand tools. i'm always afraid i would strip a nut or bolt and have an even bigger problem, because this is my only car. Is there a video on how to do this anywhere that I could watch beforehand so I know what I am getting into?

i have stock wheels and stock tire size, no spaces so the camber shouldnt be out of wack. i will try to negotiate with a few more places and see what kinda of installation cost i can work out. i will let you know if I want to get that set from you.

I don't know of any videos, maybe a you-tube search. Wheels/tires have little to nothing to do with camber. You are going to change the camber & toe when you lower the car so an alignment will be necessary. The front camber is not adjustable and the back has some. Setting front toe to max toe in is the key and rear toe just needs to be in set in specs.

I am lowered on H&R springs, but the drop should be similar to the Eibach prokit. The pack of smokes shows how low it is. I dont have a camber kit and although I have crazy camber, all I did was get the toe straightened out, and just make sure to rotate the tires (dismount, rotate, and remount).

Installing Eibach springs should be the same as the above H-Tech install. You can do it with hand tools (make sure you have a breaker bar, IMO).

TerryCS, I was checking out your 07 Sedan with the lowering kit and if you don't mind what kind of wheels\tires are those and the size? Are you lowered on Eibach's and if so how is the ride? I have an 12 Sedan AWD and was thinking about lowering it and wheels 19X9 ET40 on all 4 corners so any other advice would gladly be appreciated. Thanks, PM2K14!
