Hey guys, Just picked up a set of New SR special shocks and RsR racing lowering spings. Anyone know if these are quality peices? Also how much the springs will lower the car?

Cheers, Monk.

You can't go wrong with KYB SR Special if price was reasonable.
Strut option new are very very limited unless get likes of bilstien or Ohlins build a set as most strut range off shelf all ended now.
They will be far better than coilovers for sure ...
I think RsR springs are 40mm drop but they may of done 2 drop ranges !
Personally I think 30mm max on struts for road. Lowering to much doesn't work well with the struts or the R really.
Worth seeing how the RsR springs work out though as easy enough change them if needed at later date .

Ya, im not looking to make the R impractical. So hopefully its not too low. I picked up all 4 struts with nismo rear strut brace and a cusco front brace for $400 CAD. That a good price?

Good to know i got a good price!

They arent too bad, I've seen 2 get imported into Alberta through the same guy that got mine for me. But there sure isnt a surplus of them. They are beginning to become more expensive, as they rarely make appearances on the jap auctions.

Yeh options on fresh imports is drying up & if fussy on what you want really could be some time in finding a suitable car.

Funny like that with cars, sometimes you find the almost impossible first time without much effort or complete reverse - you spend months travelling about viewing junk.
Hope you enjoy it & your classic R behaves itself :-)

I hope so too! only drove it a handful of times last year but i never had any major issues. I need to get the Greddy E-manage sorted on it though. Not even sure why it has one as its stock turbo and injectors...

being in edmonton, i'd give it a coat of por15 over the strut housings, clean off the treads on the strut bolts and a lot of antiseize.

I'm not driving the R in the winter for that reason exactly. But that is still a good idea.
