Is that a USDM Nismo? Didn't think they sold them in your part of the world.

But no, the shocks on the Nismo (USDM at least) are NOT the same as a standard Z. They are carefully mated to the springs and offer perhaps the best handling that can be bought on a factory Z car. I'd put the factory Nismo suspension (Z33 or Z34) up against my non-Nismo Koni/Eibach/Hotchkis suspension any day of the week. Matter of fact, I did say that before: https://my350z.com/forum/brakes-and-...l#post10561740

Different shocks and different tuning for the stiffer springs. Maybe you were thinking of ride height? The OEM Nismo suspension does not changes the ride height but the S-Tune nismo springs and shocks lower the car.

Both the Nismo and S-tune have red springs and silver shocks in the US vs black springs and shocks for the stock non Nismo trim level cars.

I just noticed but your car already looks lowered.
