for the bag struts, can't you just move the bottom bracket (that bolts to the back of the brake disc) up an inch so you can dump the car lower? as far as cylinders go, i don't think they're stable w/ our macpherson strut setups. it'll snap under high loads/stress when cornering. well, that's what i heard =\
check this site out, tell me what you guys think: Mac Air
well, the bottom bracket on the strut that mounts to the spindle (2 bolts) - can't you position that bracket upwards 1" so the car can sit lower in the front? basically after that modification, the shaft of the strut would poke out an inch from the bottom. sorry, i have no pics. but take a look @ these tanabes
i know they're coilovers & not strut bags, but take a look how the bottom bracket is positioned 1" higher from the bottom of the shaft; conversely, the shaft is positioned 1" lower from the bottom bracket. you would definitely get a lower drop if bag strut setups were designed like this, provided that it doesn't hit the CV axle (but i don't know how much clearance we have).
what i'm saying is maybe you can break the welds off (w/ some special machine), move the bracket up an inch or so (provided you have enough clearance to clear the CV axle) & then re-weld it @ that new position on the shaft.

:) Hi Guys:
Has anyone installed 255x18x8.5 tires yet on their Altima?
If yes, How do you like them? Which tire did you purchase, where?
How much is your car lowered?
Are they slower than the OEM tire/wheel combo you started with?
I purchased four silver Nismo wheels(18x8.5") and can't...
