    Think I've got my lift kit sorted. Anybody wanna weigh in on my spring stats?

    Hey guys! Long time no talk!

    2018 SV 5MT. Been sorting out a lift kit and think I have everything I'll need starting in a few days.

    OG rear coils assumed at 160lbin. I've got a set of 2006 Nissan 350Z rear coils (427lbin rate, 7.5kgmm) and upper isolators. These should provide 2.8" lift. Will fab a 50mm box section shock spacer.

    Assuming front coil roughly 140inlb rate. Ordered a set of Moog 81005 front coils (276inlb/5kgmm) which should yield 2.3" front lift.

    Also have enough HPDE to do a 3/4" front subframe drop and a set of camber bolts on order.

    Will install 215/70R16 tires and pull fenders next summer.

    Anybody running 5/7.5kg rates wanna weigh in on ride quality??
