this is regarding shocks, yes here we go again.
my current setup issss z front / coupe rear shocks, overall satisfaction i say is at par. i do feel a lot of the road bumps, small to large all are real noticeable, i dont mind it much only at times. only concern would be if my struts "top out" then that could be bad.

would a better solution be a complete revised z shock/struts? trying to compare with my current setup in comfort and overall control.

i have z shocks and struts and I'm on 350z tein s techs i do NOT bottom out the shocks or anything but i do feel every little bump on the road but it really doesn't bother me at all thats the reason i went to z struts and shocks cause they are shorter then the sedan shocks ... I'm pretty sure

Im just chiming in to add info to your decision process.
05 sedan
full revised Z springs.
Tokico Hp shocks.

The ride is kina stiff IMO around town, bumps are well pronounced. Driving on the freeway is a blast, the car rides and handles great.

Yes they will work. Suspension didnt change at all on the 350's.
