Hello peeps,

Currently I have Eibach Pro-kit springs on the Versa which reduces the wheel gap to 2 inches on front and rear. I was happy with my setup until now, I'm still happy with the ride quality and looks, don't get me wrong. I'm planning on lowering the Versa even more, reducing the wheel gap from .5 inches to full flush. I'm am debating on going for a coil-over system or a 15-way adjustable shocks to go with my current springs (to reduce waste). Price wise they're both very similar but what concerns me the most is the ride quality, as I am currently trying to retain the current quality or a slight improvement. As always, any input, experience, or thoughts are welcomed.

Thanks,
ShyGuy

TL;DR: Which setup (coil-overs or 15-way adjustable shocks) will get me a .5 wheel gap and isn't too bumpy.

I would go Tein and the ride quality is great, but the lower you adjust them the harsher the ride. I have the Tein coil overs on my 200sx and I just recently lowered it another inch lower than it was already lowered ... and you can feel the difference.

Hey I was just looking at the eibach pro lowering kit and wondering if it was worth it? I like the ride quality I have with my stock suspension and I can easily get over speed bumps. Do you have any problems going over speed bumps and what else did you have to change in order to use the eibachs? I'm nervous about lowering my car as it is the only car I have for daily use.

Thanks

Oh yeah they do look nice! I think for now I will keep it stock. Now it's just deciding on the 16" or the 17". Thanks

I'm also deciding on what size of rims to buy. I do live in Winnipeg, where we have very harsh winters with lots of snow. So i'm going to be buying winter tires for the stock rims and i'm thinking of getting 17's for the spring/summer/fall months. I don't think i can get away with lowering the car unfortunatly or i'll turn the front end into more of a snow plow then it already is haha.

As far as suspension goes i would agree with Tubtub, Tein is probably your best bet. Its what I had on my eclipse before i parted it out. Good Luck!
