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.

      Night and day between the two and in a good way. Where the stock sounds like a asthmatic broken lawn mower the Invidia has a nice rumble to it low down and opens up to a pleasant scream above 3500 - 4000 rpm. Titanium tips sit a little proud and are a bit gaudy but suit the style of the car so i dont mind. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

      That's right, keen to do something like that. Still not sure about the HFC's though-some thread comments below:   Having had a Stillen CBE on its own and a Stillen + HFCs, I’d say a Stillen with stock cats would be a good option for a roadster” -To be honest though the stillen doesn’t need the hfc, especially with the roadster -If you dont want constant loud humming or a loud exhaust in general, then stay away from the hfcs. There is a thread where some guys returned them to stock and couldnt be happier. They said the hfc just made the cabin that much more noisy and annoying.   Did you put the Invidia on after you bought your car? Happy with the improvement compared to stock? Cheers,

      Yeah I remember seeing it for sale on autotrader and thinking it looked like it's been well cared for.

      Sounds good. I also saw that you were enquiring about an CBE and HFC set up. Would like to hear that once its installed if possible as i currently have an Invidia CBE and am considering the HFCs. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
