Question Question Regarding Lowering Springs

I have the Kyb's and eibach lowering springs. Due to my big ass box, I kept the stock springs on in the rear. But Im now in the process of adding another sub so I know its not gonna be sitting right! Is there something I can do to "lift" the rear a lil or am I stuck?

What up Spencer... Can't you stiffen up your rear shocks? Maybe you could look into that option. Just be careful when you put groceries in the trunk!

I can custom a set of 8-way adjustable AGX struts, you can adjust it to stiff/hard to soft.

that may help you out

Kyb AGX 8-way adjustable struts,

You can dial in 1 for soft and 8 for stiff.


that should help out if you have a heavy system or people in the back so that you dont scrap the rear.

Kyb does NOT list this for the Maxima but Ive knocked out a few of these for the 350z guys and Maxima 6th gen guys.

Question for the pro's. I am in the process of getting some coilovers or just springs. Any1 ever heard of Megan Racing Coilovers and if so what's up with them or should I just get the progressive springs? I thought about Tein but a little out of my price range. Any thoughts. Thanks for any input.

Both names are pretty popular, but I think 6thGens tend to go more with Tein.

Nizmo,

He wants more height, he won't get that from the strut, will he? He needs more spring, or airbags.

if you stiffern the read struts to #8 , the hardest settings, the rear wouldnt be bouncing as much , with all that weight in the trunk the struts will help but the ride will be stiff in the rear, esp if he drives over potholes.

Skep has his stock springs in the rear with 22inch and a full custom system and battery in the truck.

the weight of the system was just enough to fill the gap with 22inch wheels.

so I guess its all preference, he can go either way

Stock springs in the rear
or custom AGX rears
