I was browsing the Net in search of coilovers for our Altima's and I cam across this company. I emailed them and I am waiting to hear back from them. If they are able to make these for our cars then they look quite promising. they also offer custom BBK's (Big Brake Kits) for any model.

Here is what they stated in the Listing I found on Ebay and their website.they also noted under the ebay pics;" You will receive a perfect bolt-on kit for the car model requested, including sway-bar mounts, brake lines and ABS sensor brackets. "


this is ebay when I searched for 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5SL:

Choose your valving for free:

Standard specs, valving, and spring rates (street or race): 2 to 10 working days for manufacturing.

We have a standard soft spring rate combination and a stiffer spring rates combination for each application. You can choose for free between:

Street type: Medium increase in stiffness over stock, with linear springs for good control and handling. The street type retains good comfort and firm ride for good handling and no body roll. We will choose the right spring rate combinaison for your car model.


Sport / Track / Drift: Stiffer increase over stock. The ride will be firmer and suited for a street/track day use if you prefer handling over comfort. The ride will still be very good on bumps with the Sport type spring rates, especially on the softer damping setting, and it will not knock your teeth out... On the medium or stiff setting, with our 33 clicks adjustment and high performance valves, the responsiveness and stiffness is greatly increased, to give you precision and good road feel.

The fast response of our dampers insure good stability at high speed on straights and cornering. It is also useful to avoid bottoming out and scraping when lowering your car while keeping it drive-able. The base adjustable height mounts allows to lower the ride without compromising the damper travel.

Keep in mind that even on the street type the ride will feel different and stiffer at low speed due to the fact that the spring rates are linear. On OEM springs or lowered springs the progressive rate is soft at the top of the spring which gives more comfort at low speed but makes the handling less predictable and causes more body roll.

If you want to dial out a bit of this common effect due to coilover, the helper springs will give you added softness at the top and more comfort on bumpy roads. For track use the road feel and performance will be best without helper springs.

You can contact us if you would like to know the spring rate we have set as standard for your vehicle.


Custom Valving and spring rates: 7 to 15 working days for manufacturing.

For people looking for a fully customised setup with custom spring rates and shocks custom built and valved to suit. We also have optional high performance valves, suited for racing use with such high spring rates, or rally valves also.

If you don't know what spring rate to choose, please describe the ride quality you would like, and we will choose with you.


and this is their site which is more basic since you have to input even more info since it wasnt Application specific.

I would suggest adding the Pillow Ball Mounts (+120 for front+back). I have them on my BC's and they make a big difference.

Thay is definitely an option I would and will add.

I did hear back from thwm. Yay for prompt response. They said that they dont have the specs for our cars yet but they are definitely willing to make them if i can get the measurements they need. I obviously agreed to get them. So now I'm waiting for them to let mw know what needs to be done. If I run into any issues, is there anyone else interested who would be willing to help in terms of getting measurements using their car as well? Also let me know if any of you are interested in these. I won't bother asking about group buy discount if I'm the only one lol.

I certainly wouldn't be the guinea pig for these coilovers, especially if they haven't even made a coilover for the car.
