It doesn't seem too pricey if it can fix the rear negative cambers and toe issue.
or how about stillen's? kinda pricey but anybody have another suggestion? I put toyos on mine...most i;ve spent on tires so i'd like to get my neg camber fixed.

Any pictures of your car? What springs did you use?

Instead of going with the camber kit to correct the problem, I will be swapping out the rear z springs with g coupe springs to bring it a little higher and see if the camber comes back to closer specs and avoid the camber kit.

So theres no safe answer to lower an X ?!

So am I going to hurt my suspension by throwing on Z-Springs (Un-Revised)? I have an opportunity to get the Z-Shocks as well, should I try those in the rear? I want to lower my car without losing any performance.

I think the coupe sport springs is a decent drop considering what we have to work with. I spoke to tanabe yesterday they are doing a G35X right now but will not be ready for another 2 to 3 months. We will just have to wait and see.

wow..how many miles you have on shocks? how many miles altogether on the car? you think its the springs that made the shocks go so fast?

reason i ask so much is im plannin on putting H-techs on and getting rid of my 350z springs..
