Default Progress Springs Unable To Find

Whats up everyone?

So I have ordered the Progress Springs from three different websites and none of them carry it anymore.

So it looks like I might have to pick something else. I see that Eibach is rated the best after Progress Springs.

So I'm going to order from this website since they already charged me for the Progress Springs, which they don't have.

Products - THMotorsports - Discount Performance Car & Truck Parts Sale | Lowest Price | Free Shipping

I see some springs here that aren't listed on the Which Springs Are the Best thread. They are: B&G S2 Sport Springs, D2 Lowering Springs, Ksport GT Lowering Springs and Megan Racing Lower Springs. Anyone have these or heard of them???

Thanks for your help everyone.

Another option you didn't list is Canuck Motosport springs for the Maxima. I have them as well as few members here and are very happy with them.

Just an FYI.
I just got of the phone with Teresa @ Canuck. They do not sell on ebay anymore. You have to order direct from their website. Same price as ebay still applies.

Review: Canuck Motorsports Lowering Springs - my6thgen.org - Maxima Forum
I'm a little concerned about the requirement for camber arms and such... going to have a shop do mine since I don't care to mess around compressing springs and such.

Would the shop be aware of these requirements? There aren't many shops in my area that specialize in drops...

Thoughts?

The camber arms aren't 100% necessary. If you decide you do need them, they're very easy to do. I did mine myself, as have many other members. You'll need to get an alignment after the drop and will know then, based on if they get the rear to factory spec or not, if you need them.

I don't plan on replacing my stock 17s for a little while, most likely not until Spring... so basically have the shop install the springs/struts/shocks, align and see where I end up?

Getting new wheels shouldn't effect it unless you get tires that don't fit with the "+1" system. But yes, have them do the work and see where you're at after the alignment. You may not have to have them.

Oh yeah... planned on doing that. Probably going to go with 19s/40 series. Now I know an easier way to refer to that
