    I still can't believe someone would willingly sacrifice a Micra's inherent ability to jump.



    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    If you're worried about spring rates, look at
    http://eibach.suspensiondirect.co.uk...IV_K13-1.6.jsp

    Difference between Note and Micra is slight in terms of axle load so you can probably even run note springs for a stiffer ride. Eibach further seperates engine sizes and it changes the axle load as well, so they have even tuned these springs with different engine weights. These _should_ fit directly.
    Thanks for that link , bro. That specific kit only lowers the rear 10mm, might not be enough... have to wait and see, but these guys might be able to make recommendations.

    I'm interested in this ''integrated'' rear sway bar too.

    For some reason the picture of the rear sway bar set-up is not showing for me.

    As for the front, all I can see is the end, so it's kinda hard to tell how it's set-up.

    Should have looked at this closer at the show, but kind of hard to stay focused with all that sexy metal about.

    The one in post #10 in that thread?

    Yeah, that one's hard to get a photo since the bar runs above the front end subassembly.

    Yep, for me, post #10 shows only an ad. I'm guessing it's pretty cramped under there anyway and hard to show how it links to the axle and frame.

    Odd. Were you signed in when you checked it? It may not show the image to non-signed in members.

    Update: I just signed out and double-checked. The image wasn't there for me after I logged out.

    It's there now! I see now, how they just hid it in the channel of the axle. Very neat.

    Edit: still doesn't quite show where it connects to the frame though. I'll have a look soon enough in person.

    TEIN offers the Street Advance coils for K13 Micras.

    http://www.jdl-online.com/nissan-mic...k20-21as2.html

    Not sure about compatibility with our Canadian Micra, but if the suspension is the same, it should bolt right up.

    I know TEIN S-Tech lowering springs are quite popular in Thailand as well, which I discovered after doing some random browsing around online for Micra aftermarket support.
