Thanks for the info guys. I'm hesitant to hand over more cash to Jenesis after they screwed me over with the springs. If they give me a good deal I might consider them again. I'll look into the r31 options for sure. If I wanted to stick with just springs, are there any other manufacturers that make them for the DR30 like H&R or Eibach?

RSR make some lowered springs (which im told are really really low).

King Springs here in Australia also make lowered springs.

You could just find a place that makes springs and get custom ones made, generally not that expensive.


If you want R31 coilovers then Garage7 have BC Racing coilovers for AU$1,149.00 http://www.garage7.com.au/home/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=2957&category_id=10&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

yea there's those bc's too. they are weld in tho. not that hard or expensive to get done. pretty confident the shop we met at could do it for you. for springs you prob could just order some swifts in the size you want. always could go real JDM and cut a coil or two off the jenesis ones. for those BC's, besides the welding, they would be straight bolt in. the angry industries ones are the same, tho i believe you can preorder them already done for an additional fee.

Sorry. I have just had to use them. Found out the coilover nut I had on my DR was rubbing the side wall of my tire and was about to make a hole thru the tire.

aren't dr30 and hr31 both 100mm caliper bolt spacing? i had to change brakes since i had HR struts. tho i wanted to go with r32 clappers anyway. i mean i could be wrong, i def don't know it all haha...really the easiest option for him is get different springs or cut a coil or two off the ones he has. not exactly high end, but i think you'd be surprised how many shops and kyusha racecars do exactly that on linear springs.

Well, finally got around to fitting the new wheels/tires (TE37v, 16x7.5/8) and I'm happy with how they turned out. Front still needs to go down a little bit but springs are still very new so I'll give them a chance to settle. I was even able to use the original chrome Skyline center caps with the rears.

Made it out to the local cars and coffee today and there was a lot of interest in the Skyline since no one here has really seen this generation before. The generation gap was evident when the R35 parked right behind me. Looking forward to the spring weather finally arriving to do more cruising!
