Now I am on BC coils and I would never look back, not sure what kind of budget you are but if you are somewhat OCD you are not going to be happy with the way any other spring drops your car than racingline's when it comes to the looks of it, but I would say Eibach, Tien and Racingline all perform around the same.
Thanks this helps me quite a bit. As for rear shocks I have to get done; anything you'd suggest? Also any tips or other parts that could be swapped out to help? I heard of KCMAXXX rear strut brace and a 08+ rear sway bar? If i recalll

The websites were weird they said 1" all around and I was a bit confused considering the front sits a bit higher. But thanks

Take a look in the last couple pages of the 3rd gen lounge on something I just posted, as for sway bars either upgrade to a stillen(02-06) or SE-R(06') rear sway, Racingline sells FSTB and sway bar endlinks, and traction rods. Redlion sellsbushings and thats about it for suspension parts unless you get custom.

Hey guys so im pretty much ready to order some D2 Coilovers for about $900, however, im stuck with what spring rate i want. i think it ranges from 3-23 kg/mm.. does anyone know what the oem spring rates are.. i want something stiff but not that i would feel every rivet on the road. would it be safe to just go in the middle and chose 12 kg/mm as a spring rate?? could someone direct me to a forum where this is clearly described. or help me understand whats the best rate to go for

also going to be ordering some Enkei wheels and Kumho tires. the set costs around $1500. 235/45/R18

if you don't want a really stiff ride where you're going to feel everything in the road then i'd recommend that you don't get coilovers. 12k would be really stiff. i'd go with 6k front 6k rear if you want somewhat decent ride quality

Hi,

I read and searched a lot about coilovers and springs for my 2006 Altima SER, and I think I have made my choice. I wan't to go with BC coilovers, but I would like to know, What do you think about riding them in winter? Is it better to get back to OEM suspension for winter? And if yes, is it long to install/uninstall coilovers? And apart from thread locking, is there any other winter-related problems with coilovers? I live in Québec

Thanks

so if i was to go with the racingline lowering springs im assuming i should replace my shocks, is it best just to get oem or is there something else that is reccomended.

and once i drop it on lowering springs, what should i replace as far as parts for alignment?

I'm sorry for not keeping this page up to date. I don't get on here much, and I hope it's still of some help or direction.
