350z springs or Eibach Springs Help

Hey fellas I am want to drop my car very soon hopefully next week. But I need Help what would be better to use the 350z springs or the Eibach Springs. I have an 04 Sedan with no sports suspension. I just bought some 19 Iforged coupe rims so I have to make sure it wont rub affect the rims with the drop. So what should I buy do you guys think?

have you put on the iforged to make sure they dont stick out past the fenders? Don't drop your car until you see how your rims fit, or you will regret it...very badly

edit: Wait, do you mean the brand Iforged rims in coupe offsets? Or do you mean 19 inch forged rims made by rays that came on the 05-07 sport coupe?

^ if that is the case, then it all depends on how low of a drop you want. The Z springs are 1 inch all around while the eibachs a lil more (exact droppage someone chime in). since you dont have sport suspension, its not gonna be the same spring rate no matter which springs you get. Be prepared to change your shocks in the near future if you're going to run OE shocks for now.

Yeah sorry I meant Forged sorry bout that. I got the coupe 05-07 rims and I wanted a good drop nothing to crazy. I was reading that the 350z drop would be nice but then some guys say the Eibach is better. Would I have to roll the fenders if I put Eibachs on it?

you should roll your fenders regardless of what drop you use. The 19s are riding really close to the fenders and when I had it it used to rub on hard turns. Really, the difference is that you will get a lil more drop with the eibach springs, and your camber will be thrown off more.

For economic reasons, find a Z suspension set up (spings and struts) and do a direct swap. You wont have to worry about blowing out shocks down the road, and your camber can be really close to factory with an alignment.

Eibachs are around 1.1" I believe. Not much difference.

Here it is in a nutshell

Z springs -will not need to roll fenders

Eibach Pro- need to roll fenders. Spring rates are designed for the non-sport shocks

sounds expen$ive. should be < $200, but it's your money and it depends how desperate you are for them? i (and most others) got my '06 shocks/springs for under $100.
