Default Lowering

Make: Nissan
Model: Maxima
Year: 86
Issues/Questions: looking for aftermarket parts


I just bought a 1986 maxima and have been looking for some aftermarket parts for it. So far I haven't found much for it in the way of coilovers. If anyone could help me find some that would help a lot.

Here's what you need to do.

1. Sell the Maxima.
2. Buy a 240SX or 300Z.
3. Get coilovers for that.

I had one of those in 1995, it belonged to my grandparents before that. I think I traded it to some one, I can't remember.

Why would you waste money on an 86?

enjoy the cheap easy repairs and decent gas mileage

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to RatchetGoon again.

In all seriousness, just don't. But if you must http://www.myhotmaxima.com/Intrax/Lo....1.014/557883/ that is all I could find.
Please never ask me to do such things like this again. My search took me into cardomain.com and we all know the dook you find in there

Just do what we used to do, heat the springs up and have someone sit on the fenders..Preferably a fat chick, just buy her some Wendy's, get her to sit on the fender and have her give you head, then enjoy your lowered car

This reminds me that I have an old cardomain page....hahah. I had an 87SE maxima. I lowered mine on suspension technique springs. If you want coilovers you will need to swap over to 240sx suspension. Check out maxima.org, there are still some active 2ng gen guys. Here are a few pictures of mine

*edit* never mind, I cannot get pictures to show, here is a link to my old cardomain page
