Best bang for the buck mod for the G, they completely change the vehicle and you can tell a difference pulling out of the driveway and getting underway on your first post-mod drive. Just my .02 but I bet scottwax will confirm this after he has spent some time driving his car after installing them. Let us know how it goes man, curious what your impressions are.
Just like on the TL/Accord forums. Everyone wants to know the best upgrades. Answer is always (assuming a base TL or an Accord) the TL-S rear anti-roll bar and for all models, a long tube J-pipe. With the TL-S bar in the rear (20 mm vs stock 13 mm) my car cornered flatter and understeered less. When I added the TL-S front bar (27 mm solid vs 25.7 hollow), some of the understeer was back so I got the Progress 24 mm rear bar. Very balanced feel for a FWD car.
Since the G35 is RWD and the sedan only has 52% of the weight over the front wheels, understeer is not as much of an issue, so going from 31/20 mm to 35/24 mm should maintain the same balance, just keep the car even flatter. Steering response should be sharper too. Definitely will do a review after I can install them. They should be here tomorrow but the weather here has been pretty decent so I've got details and Opti-Coat jobs booked out the wazoo. finding a couple hours of free time won't be easy at least through Sunday.
