the altima and maxima have an almost identical suspension setup (maybe even exact) you might want to have someone help you who knows what they are doing or bring it to a shop , plus bringing it it a shop that knows what they are doing with coilovers , they can set them up to better balance out your car .

here's a pic of the rear suspension :

i have a shop in my area that i use to work at years ago i jus recently help this guy install tein super street coilovers on his Sentra, we thought we had to take the rear suspension bults off from inside the car but the bults are welded in on the chasis itslf i was wondering do the altima have the same setup. N nah altima and maxima have completely two different setups in the rear the spring n shocks are one piece whereby the altima have two shock and spring are seprate. i jus need a pic of how the setup looks we have never really did altima at the shop >>>RPMNYC<<< that is the shops name

The rear suspension once seen from underneath is pretty self explanatory if you know what you're doing. Rear spring swap takes about 15-20 minutes. Replacing the rear shocks & springs is about 30-40 mionutes if that. Installing coilovers takes around the same amount of time and involves the same steps.

anytime .

you don't need to do a 300ZX/350Z brake install , IMO , leave your rear brake stock (just change rotors and pads) and get the SE-R/maxima(2004+) front brakes (SE-R/maxima calipers/brackets , SE-R/maxima rotors , pads) , also do a full brake fluid bleed with high temp fluid (motul 600 or ATE blue) .

performance wise , the 300ZX setup is no better than the SE-R/maxima setup , the 300ZX setup just cost a little more and looks a little better , but it won't stop your car any better . just so you know .

should you decide to do a 300ZX brake install , get the iron 300ZX calipers , the aluminum calipers flex under hard braking .
