2003-2005 350Z OEm springs on a 2008 G35 sedan

Hey guys. I've been lurking here for a while learning things about my 2008 G35. I got some OEM 03-05 350z coupe springs a while back off Ebay for $60 shipped for the set. Not sure if these would even fit because i haven't seen anything about these springs on the 07+sedans I was hesitant to install. Well with the motivation from my buddy 35Sport i went ahead and installed them. I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend them if you want a drop but don't want coil overs or want to alter the cars ride and just want a mild drop like I did. The rear has a 1 finger gap and the front has a 2 finger gap. Camber arms and some spacers will help out back there also. But the ride quality has not changed at all. I only noticed it corners flat now but its not harsh or anything. I just felt the need to pass on the my finding to my G buddy's. Here's some pictures of 03-05 OEM 350z coupe springs on my 2008 Sedan. And not lowering springs just the stock 350z springs.


This is a before just showing how my car sat originally.

Next on the list are Camber arms for the rear and some spacers all around and a Lip.

I knew they'd work since I had the eibach 350Z springs on mine. Surprised at how well it worked out though. Most Z guys will give away their old springs.

Not bad at all. Only caveat would be for G37 Sedan owners w/ the 7AT, it will drop a bit more in front on those since the 7AT weighs about 140 lbs. over the 5AT.
I'm going to copy this thread and post in the suspension folder for reference. Thanks guys for doing this.

They will physically fit into the G37 suspension but the drop may be different than that of the OP using the earlier Z spring setup. The aftermarket camber arms are to allow more camber adjustment (and should come w/ toe bolts that allow for more toe adjusting range (once the OEM toe bolt slot is lengthened).

I put 350z nismo shocks and springs on my g35
Gave it a half inch or so drop. Alignment was in spec.

so I should look for 2003 to a 2005 350z springs in order for my 08 sedan to look just like his. Right?

I'm not sure the differences in spring rates and lengths (if any) from the earlier vs. the later Z sets, but yes, to be certain of that look I would source those springs that the OP used.

Yup there is a weight difference. 2006 and up are a slight heavier for some reason. Might give a lesser drop.
