    I'm on stock shocks also. It really rides surprisingly well. And yeah running it like this until something happens. But swift says they dyno'd the factory struts and the springs are matched to them. So in theory they should last quite awhile. Great call on considering the springs. They impressed me

    For those that have been running the Swift springs, how have they been holding up with the elements like snow, salt, etc? No issue with paint? I had some Lovells springs on my G8 and most of the paint chipped off. I went with Teins after that and they've held up solidly so far.

    Yup! I have them paired with Koni Sport shocks/struts. Nearly perfect for my use although the Lovells shocks/struts/springs felt slightly better to me.

    TEIN springs are garbage as are there coilovers. Trust me I come from a world where they ran rampant they are junk. KW,Koni,Bilstein,Ohlin, for coils or shocks, Hyperco,Swift, for coils. Eibachs are ok not that great H&R are meh, Voightland heard decent things about no experience.

    Ok let me see, Random intennet guy aka drift freaq on Zilvia who makes and sells Polyurethane engine mounts for KA24DET’s, SR20DET’s,CA18DET’s for 240sx’s all years S13 and S14.
    Started back in the 80’s with Datsun 510’s and 240Z’s had a Japanese Engine and transmission business Sun Performance Imports selling Nissan L series SSS engines and FJ20DET ( first Nissan 4 cylinder twin cams also Toyota Twin cams and Other Japanese engines and trans.

    Built and owned many drift cars starting in 2001 been in the 240sx community since that time.

    Hmmm maybe I might know a thing or two about Japanese suspension companies? Lol as I was pretty much around from before some of these companies even existed? Whats your experience since we are trying to call foul on people? Lol

    Sorry but you forced me to drop the dine have a nice night.

    Jesus H dude settle down. Just pointing out that asking someone on the Internet to trust you is a bit ridiculous. Not saying you don’t know your shit, just yanking your chain about the words you chose. Sheesh.
