I understand that the thread starter has used front 350z struts and springs on his sedan, but will the rear 350z struts and springs be a straight fit for the rear as well? Mine is an 05 sedan..

Anyone have pics of a full 350z suspension setup in an 05 G Sedan front and rear?

THX.

It looks the same. All the springs,shocks,struts on the z, g coupe and g sedan are interchangeable. The rear is a shock not a strut. Really the only time its an issue is if your just changing your springs. If you wanna change both you can get a matching set right from a 350z and pop it right in.

Why is everyone all over recycled stock springs? Get your bankroll up and treat your G to what she deserves.....

But the car looks good....I would put an 05, 06 front bumper on it gives it a little bit meaner look with the drop without being over the top

1) They look great compared to our OEM spring height
2) They handle & corner better than our OEM springs
3) They help out fellow G/Z owners by taking them off their hands (if they go w/ aftermarket springs)
4) They're much cheaper than going with an aftermarket setup
5) They're a practical drop for our cars IMO. Slammed cars look hot, but in my world, living in New England & having 2 kids, it's not practical to go any lower (i've already cracked my 2 front splash guards from being lowered). New ones on the way.....
6) Recycling is good for the environment
7) Why not?

I drove my car 90k miles before I sold it for a coupe and the suspension was still riding strong. Once again I definitely recommend this mod for your sedan. Im look for this kind of drop of my coupe now. Still searching...

Colored-dots for ID purposes

For 350Z springs--will drop a sedan 1" on all 4 corners.
Fronts are 314 spring rate and have 1 pink dot and 1 orange dot. Coils are tighter and most have the rubber sleeve on them.(2007-2008 models have 1 white and 1 orange dot) Tech farmer mentioned some z springs front may have only 1 pink dot z front are confusing

Rears(revised,2004.5+) are 427 spring rate and have 2 red dots and 1 purple dot.
(2007-2008 models have 2 red dots and 1 blue dot)

Rears(unrevised 2003,some 2004) are 342 spring rate and have 2 red dots and 1 white dot.(1 white dot)

I believe the above to be accurate, if not feel free to chime in.
(mouse over the name of pic, to see what you're looking at)
Hopefully this helps with sedan owners configuring a front z spring and rear coupe spring set up.

Spring rate reference from sticky:

Oem linear springs
G35 coupes with oem 17ís & 18ís
G35 sedanís with sport suspension
350Zís 2003/2004
Front:314 Rear:342

Oem linear springs
G35 sedan's with non sport
Front: 283 Rear: 308

Oem linear springs
G35 coupes 2005/2006 with oem 19ís only
350Z 2004.5 to 2008
Front:314 Rear:427

Front Spring height comparison

Here is a picture comparing the front spring heights. The G35 coupe spring is about 1/2" shorter than the sedan and the 350Z spring is about 1" shorter.
