    Car to low after fitting springs

    @Eddie f Here's my car with Tein Springs: Personally I'd never buy lowering springs again though. I've always had coilovers before and this was my first time trying lowering springs. I think these were on the car all of 2 weeks max! If you're going to go to all the hassle of buying and fitting the springs then imo you should always go for a decent set of coilovers, irrespective of how hard you drive the car. However, I'm sure plenty of people would say otherwise, that's just my 2¢.

    POST YOUR ZED PIC OF THE DAY.............

    @Killick.z Wheels look awesome mate! The gloss is perfection How do you find the platinum wheels? I've been tempted to buy some for my Works but wasn't sure how good it actually was and whether or not it lives up to the 'hype' it gets on Instagram.

    Silverthorn's MB 370z GT

    @Payco Yeah I did take a look at them. No matter where I buy them from they seem to be the same price. £16 per centre cap seems crazy money to me I'll leave it for now. I may purchase some at some point but we'll see!

    Had my front knuckles shortened by 25mm the other day to stop the upper control arm from tapping the inside of the suspension turret. 10mm threaded stainless rod holding it all together and then had it all welded up by a company local to me. Works perfectly! Popped out for a few quick photos afterwards as well.

    2015 370Z Nismo - Sirius Project

    @SiriusProjects looks awesome mate! Never a big fan of black wheels normally but this does look spot on the white calipers really help tie it all together imo

    370z Shortened Steering Knuckle

    Just in case anyone is interested. Had my knuckles shortened today by 25mm. Chopped out a section, drilled and tapped the top and bottom piece and instered a threaded 10mm stainless bar between the two for strength. Then had them welded to finish them off. Cost me about £80 in total and works a treat.

    Windscreen

    It's one of the first things I do when buying a car. Clean with windscreen with a razor blade and then go over it with a clay bar. Top it all off with Carbon Collective's Hydrophobia and water will not touch the windscreen for months on end

    Torqen S coilovers

    @Shep1982 ah right okay. I definitely wouldn't want to go very low then if you've got that many speed bumps by you I think whichever you go for you'll be more than happy with them! Coilovers are a night and day difference when compared to springs so I'm sure you'll love them

    Torqen S coilovers

    @Adrian@TORQEN @V1H stated in his project thread, using the Torqen S coilovers that "The rear coils I set to the lowest possible ride height, but could only achieve a drop of 12 mmversus stock. And this I only achieved by taking out one of the two blue collar ring nuts on the coil seat. I feel the rear coils are a tiny bit too tall/stiff. But I'm happy nonetheless" That's what I'm basing the above comment about a 15mm drop on... Never used them myself

    Torqen S coilovers

    @Shep1982 I'm fairly certain @V1H has the Torqen S coilovers so he'll be able to give you his opinions on them. From what I understand they don't go very low though. Not even as low as most lowering springs! 15mm springs to mind but I'm not too certain. Ive got BC's myself and I swear by them. I've had them on every car I've ever owned and they've always been spot on. Plenty of adjustment and generally perfect for the cost. Ive got mine on full stiff with 16kg front and 12kg rear springs but I generally run my car far too stiff as it's quite low. I used to have the stock 10/8 spring set up with 10 clicks from stiff on the front and 15 clicks from stiff on the rear. It was a perfect set up for daily driving while still making the car feel much sharper and planted on the road.

    @Humpy Thanks mate! Probably my favourite thing I've done to the car. Just need to finally get round to ordering those TS sideskirt extensions and drls to really complete it imo
