6 months ago I became a family man and had to do away with my superbike and truck so now I have a 99 nissan gxe limited edition .
I have looked and looked and there is not a whole lot of aftermarket stuff out there.
I recently took the fron grill plate off and replaced it with a mesh grill looks a lot better but I need some advice on lowering .
first what are coilovers? are they hard to install
are they any different than a suspension kit or lowering springs ?
I am on budget but I want something that isnt going to jack my tires up and have a bumpy ride what is my best bet on lowering my car ?

thanks .

BIG ADD,

I know its hard to save up the money, but I feel the only way to go is with shortend-strut coilovers. The Motivational Engineering set seems to be the best so far. Many members have also had good luck with the Ground Control/AGX setup, but it doesnt give you back the much needed travel that you will lose when you lower your car. B14's have very little travel, you need to go with stiff springs and only minor drop with stock length struts to make it handle well

Is that additude? If I hadn't said it first someone else would have. And in case you didn't notice, I did give you real advice first.

No attitude here, I just felt like being a moron at the moment .

I found a suspension lowering kit for 245.00 by eibach is that along the lines of what i need ?

thans for the advise, later /

That sounds like it's just the springs since I paid like $230 for my prokits. Find some new struts though too, even if you have to wait longer to save up the money, listen to someone who learned the hard way. Lowering springs on stock struts is a bad idea, just get some AGX's too.

if your tight on moeny i suggest you go with Goldlines. They are better than H&R and Eibach. I have alot of customers that like them better. It also cheaper. goldlines full springs for a 2 inch drop are like 190 shipping included . cheap dude.. cheaper than eibach.
