Lowered springs for C35 Laurel.
« on: June 18, 2006, 03:17:14 PM »
Hey there, can anyone tell me if any manufacturer makes a lowered spring for a RWD non turbo C35 Laurel? (1997 C35 Laurel Club S 25 to be exact).
I can take the springs out and take all the necessary measurements to get some made but figured there might be someone who would know if anyone does make a spring for them OR if there is a crossover with an earlier model or another model (ie skyline, silvia, cefiro etc).

Any help much appreciated :)

thanks..

i was told s15 springs fit - standard 1s will probly lower it due to the weight difference

makes sense s13 -c33    s14-c34

Cobra springs make up custom jobs, stiffness, height etc

Because that means taking the struts out, taking them apart to get all the measurements required, putting them back in and doing it all again when i get the new springs.

If someone happens to know if another spring will work then it saves me having to do the whole process twice.

Patience grasshopper :P

Duh sorry, I'm an idiot some times. Only half read the thread. I don't think you would need to completely take them out? You would only need the diameter of the spring, how many coils and the length of the springs? Could get those measurements without taking the struts out.  Most companies are very helpful.

Oh and btw, it only takes 10 mins or so taking one out? Would have to do front/back but wouldn't take very long at all

Thats true.. well half true. It takes roughly 10mins per strut to remove and take apart (only need to remove 2 1.. front, 1.. rear). But yes you do need to remove the strut completely as they need a 'free height' of the spring and the only way to get this is by removing the spring from the strut assembly completely.

But however, alas, it looks like the only option is to do that and then custom the springs from there.
