G35 coupe Lowering springs

i have a 2007 g35 6mt and im looking for springs to get a slight drop .5-1.0 inch so i wont have to really worry about camber and can still go over speed bumps. The thing is i cant find a spring that offers this with good spring rates. i looked at the g35 tein H tech but the spring rates are much lower then stock so wouldnt that mean softer suspension and less performance if anything i would want the same spring rates as stock if not even a lil firmer anyone have any ideas? thanks

NOTE!: Any aftermarket 350Z spring will lower a coupe a additional ” over and beyond the published drop amount for the 350Z. For sedan owners, the same applies to you, except you will gain a additional 1”, not just ”

I dont think it would matter, but if you are worried about it then just buy revised Z springs as stated above..

they are cheap, they lower you about ~1/2" and keep your stock spring rates

a while back i was looking for the same type of thing as you and tried the 350z h techs bc i thought the spring rate difference wouldnt be noticeable but i did notice a big decrease in handling with the softer rear springs i also rubbed over big bumps (you may not have that prob if you have a conservative offset) but after trying 2 sets of springs i ended up with coilovers and havnt regretted it for a second just be careful bc some coils have a min drop usually around 1 inch

what was the other set of springs you tried and why didn't you like those either?

Did you look at the link posted above??

350z OEM springs will drop you .5"

RSR G35 coupe progressive springs 1”/1” G35 coupe drop
Spring rates in LBS 315/315
Beware, a 1" drop spring with NO increase in stiffness vs oem.

Tein H-tech 350z linear springs .3”/.2” drop on 350Z G35 drop will be higher (.8/.7)
Spring rates in LBS 358/375


All of these are under an inch, so you can get away with nothing else

And to add to what Buju said, here's how it looks.

No camber kit needed; back to manufacturer's spec........no worries:

You reminded me of something!! (Smart a$$. )

Seriously, though, it was good catch. We're cool. I left myself open for that one.
