Default lowering question

Hi everyone, I am a new Q50S AWD owner and I was curious how people are lowering their Q50's.

I had a G37 and lowered it with an eibach pro kit but when i went to the eibach site they do not seem to have springs for a Q50. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Default Go swift

After doing much research, I found that swift springs were the best for the q50. Swift not only cares about how the car would look, but also they want to maintain the integrity of the ride performance. Although a 1in drop in the front and a .6 drop in the rear may not seem much, it makes the stance of the car look so perfect. Unlike other companies, swifts does it's r&d on US cars when others may test in foreign countries where the cars are lighter and may have different spring rates, (Due to regulations) overall the car is not bouncy, it does not rub on my 20in niche wheels, nor does it ever bottom out. The ride is so smooth that my wife who hates riding in my modified cars complemented on how smooth of a ride it is.

Ummm actually rsr did theirs on 2 friends of mine and tanabe did theirs with another local friend of mine! Only BC was just basically winged because someone tried some coils and saw which fit!

I really like how Swift is doing business...so I'm buying their springs for my q50 because I think the drop is perfect for my needs.

First time I hear of swift springs but I must say it sounds interesting. I've got RSR down SUS springs and the ride is very close to stock. I was really worried about lowering this car as my last car (Genesis coupe) was lowered on eibach springs and the look was great but the ride was really harsh! I know not the same quality of build lol...
I can only speak out of experience but for me the drop and ride quality of RSR is really impressive. Best of luck buddy!

Sometimes u also have to check their spring rates! Eibachs tend to run stuffer rates so check what spring rates they have before purchasing to get the ride quality u want, or at least close to it!

So you have the "Down Sus", not the "Super down Sus Lowering springs"?

How much drop are you seeing on down SUS? They claim it should be Drop F/R: -1.4" to -1.6" / -1" to -1.2"
