My bad. Nice car anyway. Your drop looks exactly same as mine.

No worries. I'd guess that the "cup" diameter is about 6 inches which would put my measurements at about the same as yours (approx. 13 in.).


Very nice Z.

Swift Spec-R springs (1.2" front, 1.0" rear) with Ichiba rear camber arms/toe bolts, on 18" Nismo LMGT4 wheels with 25mm rear spacers.

I plan on cutting the rear spring mounts about a half inch and adding some 20mm spacers up front.

So the GF210 has a 1.2" drop plus .5" cut so now you have a 1.7" but doesnt look that low.

Could you measure from the ground the fender for me??? I need it for my own experiment with my setup...

You must want your chit slammed (tucked)
Sure thing....will do that and post a pic later tonight.

I didn't want to cut too much b/c I plan on installing my ings lx kit soon so I'm playing it safe. The cut did even out my drop which I'm happy with

no that's exactly what i'm trying to avoid~ so when i said 1.7" doesn't look too low i meant it that it was a good drop even though it lowered so much.

So pro-kits were not low enough so you went sportlines?

Sell me your pro-kits...

Any more pics of your car with the Pro-kits?

Actually, I kind of regret going for sportlines. I scrape too much now , although it looks better . Oh well. Sorry I sold my Pro-Kit already =X. But here are some more pics of my car with Eibach Pro Kit.

Pro kit, 18x9 front +15 245/40 and 18x10 rears +15 275/35
