Have you got it aligned to see how it affected the toe and camber? Just something to keep in mind. Good Luck!
Alignment showed minimal change in toe and almost no change in camber. There isn't much available for this car stateside in terms of performance suspension. I did, however, receive these bad boys a few weeks ago. Just waiting for warmer weather to put them on. BR Racing BR Type Extreme Drop.

It depends on the generation. The stock springs from my N17 (2015) are the same size as those on the Note, but I don't know if the spring rates are the same. Coilovers for the Note will fit the 2015 sedans and vice-verse.

I contacted BC Racing to have these built because I wanted the "Extreme Low" option, which essentially gets you an additional 20mm of height adjustment on the front end. You can contact them through their website, tell them what you need, and they'll set you up with a distributor. I got mine built for the same price as the Megans.

Also, I had to negotiate pricing through a BC distributor here in the Midwest, but the coilovers actually shipped to me direct from the BC factory in Taiwan.

Well good news. The Nissan Cube and 2015 Versa Sedan have the same coilspring product numbers. (Checked in Nissan USA parts) So that means I'm getting the Nissan Cube coilsprings from Megan Racing. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.

BC's are installed. I'm still working out the ride height I want. A 3.5" drop front and rear makes the car appear to have reverse rake, even though the rear has more ground clearance than the front. I think this is due to how high the fenders are cut up front. I may actually have to take a couple locking collars out of the front to get it down low enough.
I have a few more big things in the works for the N17 as well.
Here are some teaser shots.
