    Coilovers! Has anyone tried them?

    Hi, new to the forum and whatnot. Hoping someone with some knowledge can help me out. I'm looking to further pimp out my 2015 March (K13) by doing some suspension adjustments and was considering coilovers over lowering springs.

    I found these online which look pretty dope: https://rzcrewgarage.com/products/te...mo-vsk60-c1as2. However they are labeled for the K13 NISMO. Do you think there would be a compatibility issue between the NISMO and regular K13?

    Has anyone who has done suspension work recommend something for my particular vehicle? The reason I'm lowering is because I'll be adding some sick 18 inch wheels real soon

    Haha yeah I'm an extremely rare specimen of someone who lived in Mexico and now resides in the US and didn't bother getting a new car :P I get people asking about my car all the time, and I feel kind of left out since here in America it's all about size and looks. I don't want to stick out with stock wheels and suspension!

    The Flex Z for the Nismo is the set to get if you're doing coilovers - a few of us prior to knowing that got the "street advance" series for the standard K13 -> which doesn't have the front sway bar tabs, so we have been finding work-arounds for that for quite some time. The Nismo stuff all fits, frame wise a K13 is a K13, but only the Nismo K13 (and the Canadian one) has a front sway bar.

    The flex also has the added benefit of independent ride height / spring rate adjustment, where the advance just has the adjustable spring rate to adjust height.

    Haha not quite, but still a pretty good price, adjusted for the recent drop of the Mexican Peso I paid about $7,780USD out the door and mind you this is including 5-year wide-coverage international insurance which doing the math costs $25/mo. No American car can beat this deal for sure

    I actually went through the entire suspension modding thread yesterday, thank you so much for all your input, this is by far the most informative post I have seen. In return, I'll share some pictures of the new wheel/coilover overhaul for future reference for all other March/Micra enthusiasts here
