I have gf210 springs and the front is lower than the rear so I cut 1/2 inch off to even it out which looks awesome.

If you're okay with the front lower than your rear... cutting the spring mount is not needed.
with this mod performed is there rubbing issues even after fender rolling? now im really thinking about doing this mod but at the same time Im just concerned I will rub alot if Im on the freeway and hit some rough spots especially here in houston.

no if your fenders are rolled you wont have any issues what so ever... im on coils and my car is slammed and i dont even rub... here is a pic of how my car sits on stocks.. i put my Work Emotion XD9's 18x10 +18 on to check to see if i rub and only when i hit a bump hard it hits the top of my front fender liner(plastic chit) but the rears are rolled and are fine...

No, I don't have any rubbing issues... yet, I'm not slammed.
Depends on your offset. Mine are +22 all around... it's perfect.
If I were to go lower... I might have rub issue, I don't know
Some peeps cut up to 1 inch but I would only cut 1/2 inch nothing more.

Guys, I've had my first-ever Z since November. Bought it from an individual. The car was lowered when I got it.

I've started to notice the car rides bumpier than when I first had it. Also hear a knocking sound coming from the rear (especially in first or second when turning).

How can I tell if the stock shocks/springs are still on the car? Or is that impossible since it's been lowered? I'd just like to get back to the factory feel and sound. If that means raising it back up, so be it.

Thanks in advance.

do you have springs or coilovers.. if you have springs you may have blown a shock...

Hey Jasabeast, do you have clear pics of your Z sitting still with those XD9's with the tanabe GF210 springs? I have the same wheels w/ offsets and tires. I'm still debating between the Eibach pro-kit or the Tanabe GF210's.

Hey guys, I am getting Eibach Sportline for my z in a week or so, and I wanted to know is the 1/2" cut the best for the sportlines?
I want the drop even, not lower in the back i hate that.

Hey guys,

Here is my car dropped on Eibach Pro-Kit springs. It is 1 finger up front and about 1.5 fingers in the rear gap wise. I am on stock shocks with no rear camber kit.. and the rear tires definitely wear more on the inside but it's not dramatic. I also didn't do the alignment so who knows what the toe situation is.

I want lower though. What do you suggest? Sportline? GF210? NF210?

Thanks!
John

Eibach Sportlines with 20mm spacers in the rear, ichiba camber kits front and rear... Im actually looking to go a little higher, I got a new exhaust anf it is killing me to scrape it up....I found a set of s-techs but not sure if they are low enough. So does anyone know the REAL difference between PRO-KIT and sportlines? I know that the listed specs are generous on the sportlines, I only need to go up a little bit, say less than 1/2 inch. Could some one with stock 18s measure the body distance from the ground in the rear some where?
