So is anyone running the KW V3 on sedan without sagging in the rear. I don't really have this issue with my Tein Basis so maybe I could just keep the Tein springs in the back.

Even the coupes have this problem. The KW's, like almost all G coil-overs, were designed for the Z34 platform. It apparently has a shorter distance to the top of the "shock" tower than the V36 platform.

As for Lego's comment, while the stock rear fender ach is lower than the front in relation to the axle, the bottom of the car is level. It seems this is not the case with the KW.

Everyone measures f/r gap and says the car is droopy, and it is. On Swift’s, from the bottom of the ground effects f/r I’m eyeball level on my tape measure.

So many of y’all are obsessed with “stance” and fractions of an inch

That's strange, I don't seem to have the droop issue with my Tein Basis.

Does anyone have KW V3's on a sedan and use the spacers they make? I wonder which size is right for the sedan.

Does anyone have the Bilstein's on a sedan and have the same issue.

This makes the Koni's with designated sedan springs seems like the best option as far as ride height.

KW offers a spacer but specifically voids the warrantee if you use. Go figure.

While I had to top out the rear damper, I like how the MeisterR looks. If my driveway were flatter, my car would be lower.

I am looking at a used set so the warranty would be void anyway and Bilstein does the same thing if we even use their suspension on our cars since they really only make a suspension for the Z and G coupe- it's just Tire Rack listing the same part number online as fitting our car.

It's good that most 370Z parts fit our car because hardly anyone makes aftermarket parts specifically for the G37 sedan.

MeisterR is the same, I have their Z product installed even though their site lists the V36 platform.
