Hey guys, I was wondering how to slam a Kizashi. I know it sounds a bit ignorant but I tried looking for coils and lowering springs but came to no luck. I looked on the internet and found a few stance Kizashi's but haven't found a answer to how they did it. If anyone could send a link to buy coils or any info would be appreciated. I owned a stock Kizashi for about 5 months and feel like I need a change.

H&R makes springs which lower it 1.3 inches, Tire Rack sells them for $189 https://www.tirerack.com/suspension/Sus ... odClar=GTS

You could get a little bit more with shorter tires.

You can cut springs in most cases, the key being small steps. Almost everyone ends up going too far and having to buy new springs and start over.

If you're absolutely determined to ruin your car and make it near unusable (slam it), then you're talking about custom work that is going to require custom made parts or modified parts designed for a different model car. They only sold about 20K Kizashis in North America, very few custom parts were made for it.

That's a lot of money to get 15mm lower than you could with springs. Yes, it does appear that they would work on your car.

It lowers from 25mm to 50mm (1 to 2 inch) with the german "TUV" certificate that comes with it. You can go lower without problems.

Thanks for the answers it's much appreciated. My next question is how difficult is it to install the coils because I haven't made any modifications yet to the car.

What about wheel alignment after a 1-2" drop?

Should have been more clear...my question was, more or less, asking if it could even be properly aligned after that much drop w/o further suspension component modifications. Stock Kizashi alignments have been problematic in the past for some.
