Sorry for bumping old thread but i see that there is 2 different thickness on Energy Suspension website with the same OD & ID for the Z. So I ordered 2 set, one is 9.6120 (5/8 thick) & the other is 9.6101 (3/8 thick). I'll try both to see which height it'll gives me to my liking

im still happy with mine. ill try and post updated pictures sometime soon. didnt know there were 2 different thicknesses, but i believe i have the 5/8s inch ones. i dont think id go under that honestly. with my Tein S-tech drop its pretty even right now, at 3/8s the rear would sit lower than the front (although maybe not noticeably).

still, a great low buck mod. i am considering putting my stock spring mounts in though, because my rear camber is about 2.4, front 1.4. which isnt bad, and i should get camber arms for the rear, but whatever. lol i like tinkering.

nothing special honestly...MB Weapon 17x8 front, 17x9 rear (28 and 17 offsets, and im running 20mm spacers as well front and rear now...need to do some more rolling on my fenders still). stock 225/50 and 235/50 tires until i wear them out, then probably going 245/45 and 255/45 or 275/40.

I just lowered my Z on Sportlines let it settled & the rear still rakes for some reason & i could literally almost put my whole fist in the wheel gap. That's why I bought 2 different size just in case i need it to lower more to get an even look.

Your whole fist??? Something tells me something may have gone wrong with that install lol

Had hotchkis for a while, need a little more low so i just ordered some pro kits, sportlines may be a little too low for me..... Post some pix when u get a chance, sportlines should eliminate all the gap

Thanks. I was wondering if this would require fender rolling.

without spacers in the rear, no. with spacers, yes, depending on how big. i just didnt roll a big enough area and rubbed the other day, so i took them off the rear for the time being. when i get a chance i will be rolling a bit more and putting the spacers back on.

This is not my 1st time installing suspension parts, I did 2 of my Z's & one of my G with lowering springs and they went fine, just drop the bucket and install the springs. Few members had reported their car rakes in the rear with Sportlines as well & some is lower than others. I'll post pics when I'm done still waiting for the 5/8 ones from seller.

Some crappy iphone before and after pictures.

Tanabes GF210 (drops rear about 1.2inch)
Rota Grid R 18x10+15 (255/45/18)
Near full tank of gas so it sits a little lower



Before



After





The mod took about 20mins to do and lowered the car about .25 inch to .5 inch. I have driven around a little bit and havent noticed anything out of the ordinary...I will update after a week of driving

I have tein s techs installed on my 04 350z and I went to install these new Energy suspension isolaters the 9.6120r and they seem to fit well but the inside diameter seems a bit to large to hold the tein s tech spring! It fits but awkwardly bends it to make the spring fit! Anybody with this problem

It will fit...its sort of hard to explain but what I did was place the isolators on the springs ...jack up the bucket and the pressure from the spring/bucket will squeeze the inside ring of the isolator to fit inside the springs.
