280z Coilovers and sway bar


Recommended Posts

Is your heart really set on coilovers?  


Reason I ask is that there are plenty of good spring and shock alternatives that will improve the handling and lower the car....all without the effort and expense of coilovers.  Tokico, Eibach, and MSA are just a couple of the popular aftermarket springs that utilize the stock strut mounting, while lowering the car and offering a firmer/more controlled ride.  Similarly, you can upgrade from the stock shocks to get more performance from the suspension without degrading the ride quality (shocks obviously won't lower the car, but they will improve the vehicle's handling, and are an obvious upgrade if you're already switching the springs.)  And fortunately, it seems someone is always selling used springs and shocks at a fraction of the cost of new.   :D 


I hope I'm not telling you something you already know (and my apologies if I am).  Good luck with your upgrades.
