hmm only thing I can think of is , in the front the motor weigh around roughly 600lb or so( i need to find the specs again )

but with a driver and passenger the weigh distubutes to the front, front spring rates are stiffer so you dont bottom out and scrap the cross memeber , which im sure 60% owners have already done this (bottom out /scrap the cross member / sub frame )

If you're saying it sits lower in the back because it LOOKS like it...then you need to take some measurements. All Maximas LOOK like they sit lower in the back, but it isn't necessarily true. The wheel cutouts in the fenders are larger in the front than they are in the back, thus giving the illusion that the front of the car is much higher than the rear. If you take some measurements from the rocker panel to the ground, you may find that it isn't anywhere near as far off as it seems. With my car sitting on level ground...looking along the rockers front to back, my car sits VERY level. Sitting in the same spot, if I look at the fender gaps, then it looks like the front is on a lift! It's only an optical delusion!

^^^agreed... the fenders are cut like that.. keep in mind the front wheels need to be able to turn side to side.. a lot of cars come with this same look.
