    Exclamation N16 suspension

    Hey fellas, I got an n16.
    I drive it pretty hard I will admit.😏😏
    Anyways, it's standard suspension on 17s makes it sit so high it feels like a four wheel drive going around corners.👎🏼👎🏼
    What's the best and cheapest suspension to bring ride height down and give extra stability. (Strut braces are on the cards, and so is an sr20 conversion(&#128525 so need something that will last till I have the money to get coil overs)

    What about some king springs. You could probably get a set for about $300, pretty easy to install wouldn't take you more than an afternoon. It will make your ride a little harsher though.

    Cheers,

    I 2nd Trigg3r's notion... Recently did KYB Excel G struts and 30mm low kings all round (Cost about $550??) and wow the difference was awesome. Took me and my bro-in-law about 4 hours to change over but we had to venture out for new bump stops and boots. I'm N14 though but suspect you will also see the night and day difference too. Excellent compromise between firm and comfort!

    This does not answer your question but is just my humble opinion,

    Sell the 17s and get smaller lightweight wheels,

    The car will be lower, have less unsprung weight, better braking, acceleration and handling

    Then get your coil overs and you're winning

    Totally agree , just went through the same thing myself , 17inch low profile to stock 15inch Nissan mags , the difference is dramatically smoother ride

    It seems in general that the less you try to modify these cars the better they run and drive,
    Very few modifications come without some sort of sacrifice for a some sort of gain elsewhere
