Just wondering the cost of installing lowering springs onto a 350z (just want a general idea of the cost) 

 

 

Thanks in advance

Don't do just lowered springs - that reduces your suspension travel (it's bloody dangerous when you hit the bump stops)

 

It's a very simple installation,  2 or 3 hours labour (Sydney rates = $140 PH)

My younger brother did his own springs with a spring compressor off ebay lol.

 

Shouldn't be too hard if you bought one to DIY.

yeah lol bit hesitant about just going with springs but dont have the money for shocks atm....was actually thinking of selling the aftermarket wheels I am going to install and buy coilovers and aftermarket front sway bar but really hate the offset of stock wheels.

Just watched some vids and didnt realise how easy the rears are easy to install lol...might do the rears myself and got a pro to do the front

Hmmm,

 

The handling characteristics are best at the stock offsets (bump steer and scrub)

If looks and stance are more important to you then maybe the springs/shocks don't really matter

 

Changing the front and rear springs/shocks is very easy indeed

The only challenge is compressing and swapping springs

 

Changing the roll bars is really easy also - but I would both front and rear for balance

Ive thought about this recently and if peeps are after the looks In not sure why they dont go for a 20 inch wheel to get the same look without compromising ride etc obviously there is a cost but it achieves a similar look.

    • P0011 Code (2012 370Z)
      By Trent Bray · Posted
      Anybody have experience with the error code P0011? car is currently with the mechanic...unable to find an actual issue everything is checking out and few things been checked/ replaced but car is still not running right. Initial easier fixes through troubleshooting or stripping it down to access the gasket behind (unsure if it was the galley gasket) are yet to get it going, timing, valves, actuators etc. seem fine as checked once pulled apart a bit... mechanic said he had one or two more things to try then may have to get it to Nissan dealer. Could it be a simpler fix they have overlooked like oil pressure/ filter? but assuming they had already gone their through process of elimination..

      Hi guys. I bought a 370 roadster recently and when i was checking it out i noticed a little tear starting. i didnt think much of it because my 350 soft top replacement was pretty straight forward, there was plenty of DIY literature and the tops were all over ebay. Now i own the thing, i went looking to buy a replacement top and....err....no literature and next to nothing available. crap. Help? Suggestions? Cheers!

      I don't but I'll try and see if I can get some (bit hard to find a spot where you can rev it without any dramas)

      I would suggest listening in person though, exhaust videos hardly ever show you properly (due to variation in position of cameras etc) besides a rough idea of the tone.
