Just ordered - Tanabe NF210 springs

These are the less drop (1.0 / 1.3) and are only 5% stiffer for a comfort ride. You guys think I'm going to need a camber kit to go along with it? I'm betting so considering it's really not any taller in the rear than the eibach, unless the eibach is settling a little lower than what it's spec'ed at.

If you don't mind sharing...where did you order the springs from and how much? Would love to see before/after pictures as well.

got them from Amplified Motorsports, upon the recommendation of BlueSlate.



Here's the mfg. tidbit on the springs:

Quote:

TANABE SPRINGS NF210 INFINITI G37 08+ - TNF130

The NF210 coil spring features a tasteful drop, and produces the best overall ride quality and comfort for a performance lowering spring. The lowered stance of the NF210 gives the car an elegant pose, while the spring rates, which are only slightly raised (up to 5% over stock) retain factory ride quality settings.

Just talked to Charles at and it sounds like the Tanabes were the wrong choice. He's ran them and said they're a bit stiff and harsh, regardless of the description and that the Teins are the way to go. Wish I'd have talked to him before hand.

I wouldn't worry too much...I've had tanabe's before and never thought they were that bad....though please give a review of them as I like a stiffer/harsher ride. These springs do have some aggressive rates though. ~130lbs/inch stiffer than the 03-06 springs.

talked to some other people who know peeps that ran them and they've been happy and say didn't change ride much and should feel like the 'sport' setup... so, i'll probably try and see how they work out.

The NF's are designed to be no more than 5% stiffer than factory and I'd say they opted for figuring their spring rates based on the sport springs. I think you'll be happy.

I'd much rather have them than go for a set like H&R who haven't modified their spring rates to accomodate the new ~130 lb/in increase for 07-08's.

And please take pictures. I'd really like to get these springs but I've only seen the pictures supplied on the Tanabe website and the car they show looks too saggy in the back but that might be because the front hadn't settled under the weight of the engine yet.

I will. My main motivation for going with those was the small amount of drop. I didn't want to drop a lot and these have the least drop I've found at only 1" claimed on the rear. Now, since ordering, I've been told Tein has a set that's .7" front and rear and I probably would've went for those had I know beforehand, but I think this will be the right setup. I should have them early next week, as well as the sway bars and should get it installed next week.

Very anxious to see if it tightens up some. Had the car at 135 yesterday (with only 200 miles on the odo...) and it felt pretty good but the sways were a tad mushy and the car wanted to walk just a bit. You could tell it was a non-sport. Also, above 85 or 90, the car was swapping weight a little bouncing off the sways during hard cornering. Minimal stuff, but the new sways and springs will hopefully take care of this.

The non-sport suspension is very mush compared to the sport. I've heard your sways are SIGNIFICANTLY smaller than the sports so you'll probably see a HUGE difference.

I had this on few months ago and swap it to a HKS suspension. I got to say, the height are just right, not too low nor high. The ride quality is compareable with the stock springs and it make the car goes into a corner JUST a bit better. Overall, I really like it but not too happy with the look of it.

Here are some pics with it.

Thanks for the pics. Looks like the rear sits visibly lower than the front.
