I wanted to get Eibach springs but someone told me that they are not to great on Nissans due to the softness. I wonder if that is true or not. He is pretty good with overall suspension and Nissan knowledge.

First, Eibach's are one of the stiffest springs you can get for our cars. Second, Betweed the poll that I screwed up, and the stats from another forum, Eibach springs are used by about 70%. Tein and HKS take up the other 30%. Those are not exact percentages, because there were a few that voted "stock" and one with Megan Racing springs... But those are really close percentages.

If I could do it all over again... I'd still use the Eibach springs and Tokico Illumina struts. I wouldn't change a thing.

What are you looking for Rex?

Here's a picture of a 3rd gen on Eibachs and Tokicos.

I wish tein made coilovers for 3rd gens...

But I'm stock for now but that is my next big investment. Complete suspension overhaul.

I'm gonna go with the Eibach/Tokico combo.

Eibachs? Soft? hahahaha. I have people who complain about the ride in my car because of the stiffness (then again, I have Illumina up front too).

Am I the only one to get a lower drop than stated with the Eibachs? Could somebody running stock give me a measurement from the ground to the "jack marker"?

I want to verify my numbers. TIA
