what up fellow Altimas

I am looking for lowering springs for my 98 altima. I have 215/45/17 tires and im thinking abotu getting a 2" drop, you think it'll rub. also what are the good springs out there? i found Arospeed and INTRAX LOWERING SPRINGS for 100 dollars which are better. also how much does it cost to get springs installed right? lets say the springs are 100 how much would everything be in total installed. appricate the help

Check the suspension guide on the main page to see what application is best for your needs. By experience you won't rub with 2" springs and 215-45-17 tires.

Installation depends, probably $120-150 for instalation not including alignment.

Yeah 98se has pretty much got it. But make sure you take to someplace you trust cause i've heard of people geting screwed because they were told that they had to have special work done to get the springs done when they really didn't need it.

98se, i see you got the stillen front spoiler. how much did it cost you? and where did you get it. also how much was it to install and paint. About the springs, you said you have a 2 inch drop, did you have to change the shocks? i heard you have to changed shocks with a 2inch drop. thanks

Depending on the streets in your citythe ride is going to vary. The ride is very rough in NYC with my sprint springs. I got the camber kit just to be safe. If your camber isn't adjusted to proper specs you could experience uneven tire wear.
