I bolted the second I saw those numpties weld the springs.

Bottom Line...if the coilovers ARE for tiida's...then there shouldnt be NO bounce...

sorry but i cant resist a "i told you so"
never every cheap out on crappy shj stuff for your car especially critical components like wheels, brakes and suspension.

now just go and buy a set of lowering springs new for tiida online. throw the shj coils as far as you can, destroy it so no other noob tries to run it on their yaris or civic.

from what ive seen and heard.. dont always see the price component as many modders see that and buy a modd asap. Sometimes spending more is whats safe for you and ur ride. Cutting cornors in the start will make everything look cool and neat.. wait up a few months and watch it nagging u..

my advice... order online from some reputated ebay store for nissan parts , do your research...it will be well worth...unless u wna crap out the car... Shj guys are just a bunch of muppets that want your money and arent worried 2bits about u , ur car , etc... just show us the money and take the crap you asked for ..

hope it helps.

Agree to all you guys, i feel like giving my self a face palm for the stupidity i did, nonetheless i will try giving it back and atleast getting 50% of my money back and then get H&R lowering springs BRAND NEW and not USED!

I just drove the car around today and noticed its good at cornering, turns at high speeds with good stability. On straight roads which is proper it is good and not bouncy and on uneven roads yes a little bouncy. But i am okay with it for the time being.

Just wanted to know, if i am going for lowering springs(brand new) am i still going to face bouncy ride ?

depends on the spring rate. if you go for some progressive springs like eibachs for example you might not bounce around.
are you running the correct size wheels? overall diameter same? when was the last time you checked tyre pressure when the tyres were cold?

if you switch to springs, will you use your stock shocks? are they in good condition?

Im thinking of getting H&R lowering springs this -> http://www.stillen.com/product.asp?id=H ... odel=VERSA

My wheels are stock 16" Nissan tiida alloys 195/55/16 - 16x5.5. Yes, overall diameter same. Last i checked tyre pressure was 2 weeks back. It was fine.

if i switch to springs, i will be using stock shocks. They are in good condition, my car is 2011 model brand new, just done 16k kms till now.

My front is lowered to upto 2 finger gap and back is with 3 finger gap. Does this also affect and cause issues ?

Stock shocks are not an issue with lowering springs, you will not have any bounce but they will be a more stiffer ride. But just remember the stock shocks wont last over 100K with the new height.

your camber might not be withing spec with the H&R springs. you might need a camber kit atleast up front.

well after 1 week of putting the new spring on let it set then get your wheels aligned. IF they cant get your camber and toe in spec u will need a cambit kit as soflow says.

UPDATE!

Got My Custom Mesh Grill Done :D Did it from King of Customs. Superb job (Y)

I had a different plan in the beginning but when i removed the grill to do the job i figured there was a technical issue to my plan. So i went for an Alternative look.

After removing my grill, the stock bumper comes with a centre piece in the middle of the grill:

Image

Got the centre piece stickered up in Carbon Fiber Vinyl from Mishriff in Ghusais

Image

Then Voila My Custom Grill was ready :D & Installed :D

@alexEF - The sticker job was done decently, dont know how long it will hold up. But i did it as a temporary solution to get it covered up. I'm getting that portion painted black. Also getting some more work done soon ;)

UPDATE:

New Rims & Tyres :!:

Got Myself a Lenso Raiden D1R 17" x 7 Rims - 5 Spoke in Silver finish.

Got Dunlup Direzza D1 tyres 205/45/17

Wheels are brilliant and so is the tires, looks good and i feel better response in terms of acceleration & braking. Just 2 pictures for now, will roll out more pictures later after a car wash :D
