They're an option but the reason they're not listed is because they've started out here w/ extremely disappointing customer service, check this thread for a taste of what's been going on

Wow thanks for bringing the thread listed above to my attention.

Again thank you for making this coilover thread dedicated to the X drivetrain owners.

Well that WAS a big selling point haha. But I'm still planning on getting them. I'll just play it safe with the dropping at first. I hear it's mainly the rear that requires a camber kit, does that mean I could have a more aggressive drop in the front without worries? like 1.6"

I believe the eibach springs lower the fronts by 1.9".

I feel like I just asked what you said, I guess I just wanted to confirm if that 1.25" was all around. Thanks!

i am running the D2 racing coil overs..
right now the top of my wheel well is 26" from the ground.

i like the D2 because you get the dampening settings as well.
i had to run a camber kit as well.

ride is a little rough but then again im running a 10.5 wheel all around with 275/30/20 tires.

Eibachs should only drop around 1.3" but YMMV
With coilovers you could drop it mild, get your alignment and basically just drop it enough to have alignment that you can live with. I still recommend getting the whole F&R kit but that's just my 2 cents. The front toe is adjustable so regardless of your camber you can still get toe in spec, but the front camber isn't adjustable from the factory so w/out the front arms you'll have camber out if you drop more than 1.25" give or take. The rear camber & toe only has minimal factory adjustment so to get the toe in spec you at least need the rear toe bolt kit unless you really keep the drop subtle.

Your G is looking nice w/ those wheels and the drop. You really should add a detailed review of those coils since we're trying to get a good database for other X owners. Possibly some pics of the coils and ease of adjustment, any noise issues and what height range the coils have (if you can give a rough estimate) All this kind of info will really help this thread to become a valuable resource. Appreciate any help you can provide, and again, nice G you're putting together

Unfortunately, i dont have any pictures of the coil overs, installed them the same day they came is as i was excited to get them in.

as far the the Height, i can still go about 2-3 inches lower, so the height range on the D2 are great, but you also have to keep in mind, that you dont want to go too low, as you will strain the front drive arms ( they will be at a weird angle causing vibrations)

The D2 is fairly easy to adjust the height even after installation.

One thing to keep in mind, is that if you want to adjust the dampening, the front can be done after installation, but the rear you have to do before installation, as the trunk area is all sealed for better noise dampening.

HMU if you guys have any questions.

K-Sport Review

Well here's my review of the K-Sport Kontrol Pro Coilovers;

Part Number: CIN021-KP
Spring rates: 16k front, 8.7k rear

Here they are in the box, love at first sight

I installed them in about 8 hours taking my time. It was my first time installing coils on a car I really cared about so it was a little bit nerve racking.
Installation of the fronts went perfectly fine. Everything lined up properly and I had no trouble adjusting them.
The rears on the other hand were missing a nut. The nut that secures the rear shock to the lower shock mount is welded on to the OEM shock. To my disappointment, the K-Sport kit did not supply this nut. Thankfully I had access to another car and there is a brafasco close by. I had to buy two nuts ( 12X1.25 ) and use them for installation. Mind you, they only cost about $2 but I was just a little upset they didn't come with my $1200(CAD) coilover kit. I never contacted K-Sport about this issue but I will be sure to do so.
After installation was complete and I adjusted the height and dampening to where I wanted, I must say I couldn't be happier. I set the front and rear 26" from fender to floor and dampening around -14 from hardest in front and rear.
I had a couple people in the car and they had no complaints whatsoever.
There are absolutely NO NOISES coming from anywhere. The ride is amazing. There's lots of room for adjustment (around 2" down and 2"+ up).

All in all, I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone who is looking to drop their X. It's amazingly quiet, comfortable and easy to use.

I've only driven about 5-600km on them so far, but if they keep going the way they are, you won't be hearing any complaints from me

Edit - Sorry for the iPhone4 pics lol

Don't know how I missed this review. Thanks a bunch for posting the good pics and info. Please post updates if you have any issues (or just want to back up your praises) and any more pics. Nice to have some info coming in for the X guys wanting more choices.

Very nice. I think I might have to rethink my options. So confusing on what to go with. Would like to get more feedback on the Fortune 500's. K-Sports do look nice though.

Nice sticky post.

Tanabe has their sustec TSC130 with all other model noted as 2WD except 09+ G37 Sedan (no note, suspect 08 G35 sedan also belong to this category with same platform). I suspect they forgot to add the note. Sent an email and waiting for reply. Will update once received a reply. Do not think will get any until next week.

If any fellow received negative / positive already, please post back. Thank you.

I know this is a old post, but did you ever manage to take photos of how the rear is set up, being that we have separate springs from the shock?...
Thanks

Sorry i dont have any pics of how its set up. Its basically just the coilover mounted where the oem strut goes and no spring in the bucket. I haven't had any issues with them at all and the roads around me are HORRIBLE. I have them set at max stiff on the dampening and they still don't ride that bad.

I can't comment on how the coilover style affects handling since i'm not really setup for track or anything. If you're looking for a decently priced coilover that rides comfortable, these are the ones for you.

Do any of the coilover options for the X offer a setting that is near stock ride height? I have an X coupe on Eibachs and I would consider coils if I could raise the ride up higher during the winter.

Can we revive this thread. I'm looking to drop as soon as winter is over and I'd like to not spend much money. I was actually considering the Eibach Pro Kit but reportedly the ride is too harsh???. So right now I'm considering KSport or Megan as the Fortune options is just too expensive.
