I just lowered it more last night.
I'd like to be another inch lower, but Im pretty much maxed out on the rear perch's and want to keep it even.

Not to happy about it, but once it sees the track im sure i will feel alot better

In a month or so I should have a few more dollars saved.
Opinions if I should get sway bars and endlinks first. or a bucket seat?

I will eventually get both, but debating on what to do first.
Im kind of leaning toward the racing seat because I just dumped a good chunk of money into suspension already for now.
And thoughts fellas?

Sway bars and endlinks will cost much less than a quality bucket seat/sliders/mount

What seats/mounts are you looking at?

Right now looking at a STATUS suede seat.
My friend/co-worker/sponsor owns a an aftermarket shop and can get me anything for almost at his cost. And he has an extra slider he will give me for $50.

The seat will be more. but not by toooooo much. luckily hah

Nice. Suede is awesome but it ages/fades quickly.. especially for a dd (and especially black if that's the color you want). But if you have the supplies/know-how to keep suede looking good I say definitely go with seats/mount first.

What's the brand of the rail/mount?

Leather is the top choice in terms of durability and life (as long as it's properly cared for) but obviously is the most expensive option.

I would suggest cloth over suede because it is easier to spot-clean and suede has that texture that will wear quickly and unevenly in most cases, again especially if you're dd'ing your Z and getting in/out constantly.

And nice, can't go wrong with Bride.

Oh yeah hah. Talked to him for a quick second. Turned out they were actually his sons and went on his 350z lol. He said he hit a center island when making a turn on a local street.

We dismounted the tires for him and he is going to try and get them fixed. and if they are not repairable, he is going to make a table out of them haha.

Just thought id share

UPDATE ***
Picked up Peter's (Pyshin's) Recaro seat the other day.
Decided after 13 years, this seat could use a wash. After the dry cleaners stole my $10 deposit, I had to hand wash it myself.
This thing was like a shammy for dirt!!!

Need some opinions...

I have a grey willans harness now that I got from a friend for free dollas.
Should I just rock the basic willans buckle harness or get a Takata 4 point race one? In black
Thoughts?

If you don't have the cash now then just rock the willians, but if you have the cash for the harness bar and the harness then get the takatas. If it was me though I'd get a quick release wheel first, and rock the willians until I had money again for Takata's.

Dope man. Shawn is super cool. He is the reason why I got my Need For Speed gig years ago. He heard me romping up and down the street and referred me to their audio team for the VQ lol.

Thanks guys for the nice comments

Got my alignment done today at Evasive motorsports.
I'll post up the spec sheet tomorrow.
But its looking like I'm going to need front camber arms in the somewhat near future

Also...I need some thoughts and opinions from you fellas.
So about a month ago I got my KW V3's installed and now have my previous suspension setup (tokiko D-spec) laying in a box as my backup.

I know Im going to have to rebuild my coilovers at SOMEEE point and time. and here are my two options.
1.) Keep old suspension and do 2 re-installs myself when the time comes to re-build the KW's
ORRRR
2.) Sell my old setup, and put that money towards authentic wheels. And when the time comes of getting the coils rebuilt...borrow my mother car for those few days. Or get a rental for 25$ with my dads company discount.

Input?
