Thread: Random pics of the M37 dropped

    Random pics of the M37 dropped

    Was leaving the garage at work and got an idea of how the car would look dropped even lower. Still considering coils for it, just not 100 % convinced they are a good idea...

    Its as close to perfect as your ever going to get.

    Any lower and after a while the drivability of having to gauge on ramps will wear on you.

    I don't want it slammed but a little lower than the Eibachs put it. Definitely don't want to lose every single inch of ground clearance

    I'm planning on getting some BC coilovers just to get rid of a little more wheel gap as well.

    How do you like the ride quality? I've dropped every car that i've previously owned. Loved the look but HATED the ride quality afterwards and said i'll never do it again!

    Well... here i am again... lol. I'm so tempted but i think the OEM sport springs are harsh enough as it is!

    Car rides a bit harsh over bumps. I think the lowering springs have a good part in that, but the lower profile tire is largely responsible as well. I'd drop it anyway if you want it low, its never going to ride like some of the other cars out there, but might as well get the look you want.

    I totally agree with everything you said Altered, so when are you going to pull the trigger?

    I probably won't, lol. The M is my snowmobile, and it works perfectly even on the Eibachs (with the OE wheels, of course). I most likely will just leave it, but I would love to sit it down further if I get a truck for snow. We'll see, I really don't want to invest in installing coils then find out A) I lose my snow prowess or B) the car rides too uncomfortably or C) both

    Different wheels, still want it lower...







    BTW, these rear wheels are 20x12, with 325/30R20 tires. Just want to let folks know that size can fit the car.

    That looks like a perfect height to me.

    It is...for actually driving without hitting things such as road hazards and clearing my driveway. Appearance-wise I'd like the springs to sit it an inch lower, but I enjoy it as it sits.

    That's exactly where I will be setting my car once I get around to installing my coiovers which have been on the shelf for 8 months. Looks perfect to me.

    How are your alignment specs at this height?

    All good as far as I remember. No weird issues with it.

    Any pics from the rear? I would love to see the shots of those 325 from a low angle at the rear.

    ^^Same here, I had 255s on 10" wide wheels on my Altima and it had a really satisfying look to it. That's what the 325s remind me of on the M. But I have re-installed my other wheels...the black ones are a pain to keep clean
