Default Canuck Motorsports Lowering Springs

2004-2008 Nissan Maxima lowering springs.
www.Canuckmotorsports.com
Part # 6015.44100

I truly apologise for taking all this time to write this review as many of you have been asking me about these springs. My schedule has been keeping me quite busy...

As many of you know through my build page, I decided to go with Canuck Motorsports lowering springs for my Max. These lowering springs are made in small numbers in British Columbia, and I think they are priced very reasonably. You can pick these up for $149.00 on ebay.

As mentioned earlier these are made in small batches, as a matter of fact when called them they did not have any stock (they do now) I had to wait a few days untill they were going to make the coils for me....Maxima is not a high seller for them. They do sell more to the Alti crowd however, and the reviews I got from some friends spotting their product within the Toronto Alti scene was very positive. Now that I have had some seat time with these I'm extremely glad I have made the choice to go with these.

The advertised drop rate for the 04-08 Maxima is 1.75" Front and 1.00" Rear.
The quality of the product is excellent and the staff was very well informed of their product. The ride feels firm and the Max feels planted. I think these offer a perfect balance at least for me. They are soft enough for a daily driver but then again you know you are lowered when taking spirited corners.
The springs offer a nearly perfect drop balance front to back, I can still get lifted onto a hoist and my exhaust is not scraping anywhere. What I also like is the fact that I can upgrade to 19 or 20 inch wheels down the road without any other suspension modifications. Thats a plus.

Again, I couldn't be happier with these springs. They transformed the Max into the SE model it should have always been. The HUGE fender gap in front is gone, the rear end sag as well and I got a great handling, quiet and a very responsive suspension as a trade off. What else could I ask for?

Thank you. Yes, well spotted. I went with Monroe Shocks. They are made domestically and reasonably priced at the same time.

I think I will order these in a few weeks. I really like the drop it gave your car especially in the front!
