Is there anyone out there w/aftermarket springs? I think Eibach has a set. Need a review and pics! I love the SL stock wheels, but love cornering hard a little too! Ride isnt a huge issue, and have had them on a Camry and Maxima, just currious on how they would look on the MO.

Thanxxxxxxxxx

yes Eibach has the Prokit for us but I would wait until someone tries them first.Eibach has a thing for getting spring rates wrong.Also be on the lookout for a new set of struts the valving in your OE struts wouldnt be able to take it.

I agree that the spring rates may be an issue, but I have had experience 2 times w/stock struts/shocks, w/their springs, on the Max I drove for 30K+ w/out any leaks or softening. The secret is to limit the drop to 1- 1 1/2". On the Camry, it was just enough to firm cornering, and kept most of the highway comfort. I am more worried about how it would look w/1 1/2" of drop??

I agree with the look! Lover the MO and you get a minivan! If you need better performance try SE set up.

I would not lower any vehicle without also changing the struts/shocks. While the stockers might be able to handle lowering for a little while, the difference with good aftermarket dampers is night and day compared with the mushy Nissan parts. I actually have no problem with the Murano's height. I would prefer actually to just change the struts, if KYB AGX's ever become available.
