I have 10,000 miles on the car, and about 4,000 on the springs. the ride is still good, i just notice the bounce with 2 people in the back or turnk stuffed.

so are you positive its the shocks?

I had the unrevised 350z shocks on foor 2 weeks now and get alot of bounce too. i had 3 people in the car including myself and my passengers hit their head on roof when i went over some bounce....

thats why im gettin rid of the 350z springs. was planning on the H-tech..but maybe i should try the S-tech.

I have two options for suspension on my X
1. Tein H-techs w/ stock shocks/struts
2. '06 Coupe 6mt springs F/R and Rear shocks

Which option do think will give me the best look and most improved handling?

well. I have decided to go back to stock height for now. I drop of the car tomorrow to get the stockers installed. I will eventually go back to lowering it but not as low as the 350z springs put me. Right now I can only drive with 2 other people in the car with out rubbing or something and I just dont want to deal with it.

I am also selling my rims if anyone is interested. I will be gettin new ones next summer but for right now I need some money.

I will have my Unrevised 350z springs for sale soon. Let me know if you are interested. Looking to get $100 plus shipping.

KrazyEd,

Wow...surprise to hear you went my route. I won't consider ever lowering this car again unless there's a full aftermarket kit for the X. If you have to try, I would say Coupe springs. The z springs (at least in my own opinion) just doesn't work well with our X. The front takes a beating on very minimal bumps on the highway. I have z springs and coupe springs for sale too.

Yeah...I just hate the fact that I couldnt really have people in my car and that the ride was getting a little more bouncy.

I had a few reasons myself, one being the same as yours. When loaded in the rear, the rear passengers are similar to riding a pogo stick. The z springs handle awesome and I can't deny that. However, because of how low it is and the shocks not keeping up, I had to constantly dodge bumps and was driving like a grandma. Now with the stock springs, it doesn't handle as good obviously but I can once again drive like a maniac.

I'm in the same boat as u guys. Had the z springs on for 2weeks and took them off and put H-techs on. Its not nearly as bad, but thats all matter of opinion. everyone said the z springs were little rougher than stock! like hell they are...

H techs w/ 3 1/2 people is not bad at all. didnt have to swirve around to avoid bumps or drive like a grandma so i guess the ride isnt bad enough for me to notice or had complaints from the passengers. last time w/ the zsprings with full load, the rear passenger hit their head on the ceiling when i went over a bump

Well my stock springs and stock wheels/tires are back on. Kind of sucks but right now I have a wedding to save for. Come next July I should have a new set of shoes and hopefully there will be an aftermarket stock/strut kit available.
