Now that my sedan's center of gravity has been lowered, I have really put the stock tires to the test on corners and curves and I can say that the bastards can stick! Nice performance for stock, specially at 215 millimeter width. Have to get the most out of the 180 tread wear Goodyears, since the lower the tread wear, the stickier the tire... Nice rubber Infiniti!

I think they've done a great job with almost all the stock parts on this car. Except the audio, that is...

Do you notice a lot less body roll with just the springs? I'd imagine a set of sways would be really fun!!!

V, I am encountering a whole lot less body roll. Eventually I will probably go polyurethane bushings and the whole thing, but might decide against it since like Kloh said, this car already has a gob of good stuff, plus I want to keep the ride quiet and squeak--free. BTW, Eibachs are finally out for the coupe! Look out for them...

Damn XZ,

Now you have me wanting new springs! I wonder what their rules are for mods on a lease car? Anyone know?

Same rules should apply within the warranty limitations lead (e.g: installing them at the dealer, babble babble babble) I'd think you can put the car back to stock before turning it in or end of lease inspection if you are planning on staying with it at the end...

I can never keep a car longer than a few years. That's why I leased. I will be upgrading to hopefully a new and improved G by then. Maybe by then they'll have an AWD turbo G. [lol]

Lead, if you get lowering springs, you can no longer participate in the stock class am I right?

Not real sure. Let me check the rules real quick. I'm actually in a Street Tire class which is the same as Stock except you can't use Race tires.
