In the interest of improved ride and handling and doing something different I have installed KYB shock absorbers with lower stiffer Eibach Pro-kit springs.

I installed a Hardrace rear sway bar that was really for a Juke Nismo but fits perfectly. I was amazed Nissan don’t fit a rear sway bar although the mounting holes are already there?

I have also fitted a set of 9.5x18 Rota alloy wheels in white which I was offered in a sale. I chose Sumitomo HTRZ II tyres which came highly recommended.

I am happy to report ride and handling are much improved although the white wheels are subjective among my friends.

Dry grip, cornering and wet weather driving is now much more enjoyable and I even have steering feel thanks to 235 section tyres. Rears were 235 but I have changed to 255. The 235 tyre sizes showed some stretch which I wanted to avoid so I will fit 255 front tyres when they wear out.

I want to take it for a spin. Nice mods.

How much has your ride height changed ? (I use ground to center of fender opening)

What downsides have you noticed?
