    Hi there, I am putting together my list of wants for an 850csi (no car yet but want to be sure I can get the things I require before going ahead)

    Looked at a few sites with regards to Exhausts,Clutches, Brake Discs/Brake lines/Pads and other things I may well need and and they don't seem any more expensive than the skyline parts I am used to buying. but I cannot seem to find much suspension wise.

    Ideally I would like a set of coilovers as I have tried the Eibach lowering springs before and they just don't drop it enough for my liking.

    However if you do have some Eibach springs on do share a picture

    Cheers Russ

    Thanks for the Reply Mark.

    Guess its get some made up spring wise, Eibachs really didn't drop the car enough when i last used them and sold them and got a set of FK coilovers.

    one place to try might be gaz shocks...afaik they used to be called leda and would offer bespoke suspension components.
    probably wont be cheap but worth an ask

    Thanks again Mark will have a look.

    I've seen one or two lowered to the height I would like and have sent messages to try and find out what they are running on so it can be done.

    Can get springs made up but if the ones already available do the job so be it.
