i have a c33 laurel and am looking at adjustable suspension at the moment

i got told yesterday that p11 primera adjustables will go straight into my laurel.
i googled some pictures and they look similar/the same but can anyone confirm this?
as i'm not too keen to fork out for adjusties then find out they're the wrong set.
also are "platform" (brand) adjustables any good?

cheers

Cant say if they will fit or not, but surely the spring rates will not be right for your car!?
I could be wrong, but A31 Cef or Silvia suspension is similar to Laurel gear... maybe try looking in that area?

S13 ones will definitely fit.  I havent heard of anyone using primera adjusties.  i'd be wary buying them tbh for that matter.  Being a fwd/4wd I doubt they would be compatible.

Also have never heard of platform?

yeah man would be best to stay away from 2nd hand adjusties cuz you never know what you'll get. never heard of primera going in to laurys either. a31 cefiro and s13 defintly fit. its all the same **** with a31s and c33s really. just a different shape shell. r32 fronts will fit in your rear to im pretty sure.

ah yea ive heard about different brands being a b***h to rebuild.

hahah yea i went in a mates 180sx and the adjusties were on full (hard) damper
if he went round a corner too quick the back would just catch up
not bad but you could definatly feel it twitching!
bumps were a bit rough but aslong as you dont hit them too fast they are forgiving
but once again not the smoothest on corners
