    lowering springs

    I've been looking at my car and think the gap in the arches needs to decrease a little,
    i'm thinking of lowering it.
    I have the full tein coilovers on my other car and dont want to go that far with the s15,

    What i'm wondering is does anybody know if i can get a good quality lowering spring kit ?

    The Apex spring kit is good value for money, but not that good if you don't want to lower much. It lowers 35mm, but generally settles to around 40mm...

    Remember though that your camber will be out, and unless you want uneven tyre wear, you going to have to sort it. You can do the fronts for under ?100, but the backs are going to cost you ?2-300.

    Going for coilovers will give you much more flexiblity, but you'll still have to sort the back out with adjustable upper arms.

    Cusco, Ikeya Formula, JIC Magic, Kazama etc.

    What type is recommended?? I've seen two different types.
    Pillowball and Bush type. What's the difference between the two

    Bren has been running a GB on his own brand alignment kit...

    I just sold the pillowball front and rear mounts I was going to fit...

    you dont want to lower the car too much using stock damper, less travel distance so it might damage the damper. I've bottomed stock damper before and damaged the chassis so you don't want to do that

    i'd suggest you to get nismo S-tune suspension which will lower the car by 2~3cm and its as quiet as stock not like coilovers

    most camber plate you get now are pillowball, i've seen S-tune with tein camber plate

    i hate my car with coilovers, yes handling but if you going to driving the car daily then s-tune is a better choice
