Default Rear Tire Wear And Ride Quality

Hey Guys! Im back and need a little assistance with my issues.

First of all, I need to fix the problem with my rear tires wearing out waaaaay too fast. Alan, you had pointed me in the right direction but I was not able to do anything at the time. Now I can and want to get this resolved asap. The inside of my rear tires kept wasting away. I cant remember what you told me to get to fix this.

Problem number 2 is that my car feels like crap. Lots of tire noise(could be worn rear tires)and just not smooth like it used to be. Beside the Progress springs, everything is stock. Need to do some suspension upgrades.

I am on 20's with Progress springs. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Yes and when I get it aligned, the guy says that i need something in the back to allow the tire to properly align. That is the something I am trying to find.

I recall somewhere, possibly on the other org, that the 03+ rear camber kits fit.

I'm copying this from another thread

http://www.ichibausa.com/ic35g35caarm1.html

I have this installed on my car. My rear tires had always worn out unevenly. I have had this on for about 7-8 months now and the tires are looking good. Some cars might not need it, I think it depends on the wheels that you have and how they sit. I have Progress springs and KYB shocks with 20x9.5 rear wheels. So far it's a good investment for me. I bought mine used from someone in the other org.

Awesome. Just what I was looking for. I think im going to also change my springs and try the Eibach's. My rear springs make a horrible noise when going over speed bumps. If im not mistaken, some rubber or stopper is missing from both of the rear springs.

Also want to change out the struts and shocks. Any suggestions from members that already have their cars dropped would be great.

Ok so far im going to order the following probably Friday when Uncle Sam gives me my money.

Camber arms rear
KYB GR-2

Debating the Eibach springs cause I keep hearing they are really stiff. I can always order a new set of Progress springs which worked out for me beside the damn squeeky noise they make.

Going from Progress to Eibach is only going to make your wallet lighter. If you're missing the spring isolators for the rear springs, then buy a set of isolators. I have the GR-2's, and they work just fine.

Hey I reply to your welcome thread,

but yes you need the 350z rear camber arms from 03-05 BUT make sure you get the ones with the camber BOLTS , very important.

as for after struts, KYB gr2 is decent , I remember you had a system and your kid rides in the rear seat,

Since last spoken Ive manage to do a custom setup with KYB AGX adjustable for the rear of the car

Are the ones that Kidd linked up top the right ones I need?

Yea I have a system and my daughter rides in the back but I'm not trying to spend too much. I see lots of great feedback on the Gr2. I just want to correct the tire wear and upgrade my suspension.

Where can I find these isolators? Progress?

^^ yeah those are the camber arms you need,

I would get those , install them and maybe get the rubber isolators at Advance auto.

jack the car up and wedge them between the spring, it should help out and the most I see you spending

$100-130 camber arm
$10 isolators.

and just some elbow grease

I'm sorry, but your tire dude is an idiot. I'm dropped on coilovers with 30 series tires and my fender is a hairline above the top of my tire in the back and never had tire issues. I've had my tires for almost a year sand they still look new.. no uneven wear or weird bald spots. I'd take it somewhere else to get a proper alignment.

Cool. Im going to do the camber arms, isolators, and GR2, tires and brakes to get this party started. Its been a while since I put some money into her, so im excited about doing so again. Cant wait to paint her up later this year.

I wouldnt doubt it that he isnt a rocket scientist, but this is the alignment dude at Nissan. I would like to think he has some kinda knowledge on aligments. I go through the 2 back tires at least once a year, maybe twice. The front ones dont wear at all. Going to give these camber arms a try. Hopefully this will resolve my problem.
