This looks great! Exactly how I would like my car to look and how it should have come stock almost. Are you in an area with bad winters? My only reason for holding out on this (besides $$$) would be do I want the small "penalty" with having a lower ground clearance in the winter compared to all the benefits (performance & visual).

Anyone lowered their G70 slightly in the northern US or Canada? Thinking with the sloped front end adding some clearance and the already generous ground clearance it should be fine.

Were the springs fully settled in those pics? Did u do the install or a shop? If the latter, may I ask what they charged for the labor?

I'm planning some custom wheels and have been looking at those springs, but may need to go a little bit lower.

Thanks!

The day after install and I installed myself. Really not that hard, just took my time. I was nervous though never doing it before much less on my new 50k car.

Hmmm, I installed springs on some of my previous cars, but this one seems finicky with the adaptive b.s. I'd hate to mess up a sensor or something.

Did you use spring compressors or just carefully remove the control arms, etc.?

Is there a procedure somewhere to help with the removal/install?

Just so everyone knows, I contacted ARK about their springs. They told me what the spring rates are, though they're unsure of what the OEM rates are.

Our spring rates for the GT-F are:
3.2 kg/mm Front
4.9-5.8 kg/mm Rear

I do not know what the oem spring rate is, but I can ask our suspension engineers in Korea.
If I hear back about the OEM rates I'll post it here.

Can you provide a link showing which spring compressor you used? I'm pondering tackling this project, and my spring compressor is the more typical style. I just installed my ATQ subframe collars, and discovered that I may need an alignment check, so I figured I might just get some lowering springs and make the alignment actually worth it. :LOL:
