Thanks! @Ray09 Yeah they're the 20" FX wheels and the guy I bought 'em off had them painted gloss black.

Awesome all around! My favorite color combo!!

Nice score on the wheels! They look perfect!

Which coilovers did you end up getting that fit? How's the ride?

I have some H&R springs sitting to be installed but I don't think they're going to get me as low as I want like coilovers would.

I like the stance a lot. What tires are you running with the 20's?

@MuranoDriver, I went with Yellow Speed Racing coilovers...the ride is surprisingly smooth (not stock ride, but way smoother in the rear vs. sport springs w\stock shocks) If you want a smoother ride with the H&R springs in the rear you'll need to get a custom shock. I contacted KONI-NA and they were willing to help, but they were asking for specific measurements of the rear shocks which I couldn't provide. That may be a cheaper option to go granted you can give them the spec measurements they want.
Koni North America - ITT

@Ray09, I'm running 265/50/20 Nitto NT850+ tires. I'm noticing a little rubbing inside only on tight turns, so I may need to raise the height a bit. Possible spacers if it will help push it out a bit from inside fenders. I didn't think it would be an issue...but with tire width 265, FX wheels ET40 (vs. ET35 Murano stock), and lower height I guess it was to be expected.

Wasn't there an issue with fitment and/or part #'s?

The NEX coilovers I went with originally had the wrong parts sent to me for the rear section..they never resolved the issue. These are a different brand of coilovers and they fit just fine in the rear.

Oh, that's right! So you currently have the NEX on the front and Yellow Speed on the rear? Or did you put the Yellow Speed all around?

Got a link for the ones you got?

Yellow Speed all around. Here's the link...one left from this seller:
Yellow DPS coilover 02 07 Murano 33 Step Adjustable Suspension System Coilovers | eBay
Note: they don't come with the rear upper mounts so you'd either have to re-use the ones from the stock shocks or buy new rear mounts..I did the latter.

It's a shame, the NEX coilovers were fine in the front and they gave me new springs for the rear, but it just needed the proper shocks. I was riding it with stock shocks in the rear and the ride was rough in the back

Thanks for the info Paz! I really want to grab a set but still have the H&R springs. :-/ Maybe I could sell them and put that towards the coilovers.

Where did you get the rear mounts?

That's right MuranoDriver! Johnni, you can jump on those coilovers

MuranoD, I got the rear upper mounts from FactoryNissanParts.com , but if you google OEM Nissan parts there are several sites that sell them. To ensure proper fitment for your Yr, Model, etc you can enter your VIN# on some of the sites. The mounts were ~$20ish each.
