That is not true. Granted they won't damage anything but trust me when I say they WILL shorten the life of your shocks dramatically. Within 4-6 months your stock shocks will need replacing.JBLoudG20 said:My father, who is an infiniti master technician, said that the springs will not affect the shocks on your car.
Come on! He is a master technician and he stated that? :-\My father, who is an infiniti master technician, said that the springes will not affect the shocks on your car. Obviously, lowering it will decrease the ride quality, but if installed correctly, they will not harm any part of your suspension system, shocks, struts and all.
And he's a MASTER technician?!?JBLoudG20 said:My father, who is an infiniti master technician, said that the springes will not affect the shocks on your car.

At most they will last 6 months depending on how new your shocks are. They will just start to get really bouncy.JBLoudG20 said:My Intrax springs will be on in about a month, and my father doen not expect to see any problem for a couple of years.
I'm sure your dad is a good tech, but like you said he doesn't have much experience with aftermarket parts. This will probably be a learning experience for him.
By the way he has over 30 years of nissan experience and has been with Infiniti since its introduction. I'd like to thank all of you for being so polite about correcting my post.
We're not wrong.....you're just lucky......:evil: :lol:JBLoudG20 said:AHAHAHA Following G2002's trend to find my first post, I am led here.
Thought I'd set the recode straight who was right, too...
Over 2 years now with B&G's, on stock shocks... guess who was right :lol:
But everyone KNEW they would blow 6 months TOPS... :evil: get your facts straight...
Shocks are still perfect, and I still have no intention of replacing them.
How would you know what fine is if you've not experienced stiffer shocks? You could put on stiffer shocks and slap your self in the fore head and say "DANG, Look what I've been missing for 2 years!" It's a fact that stiffer shocks with stiffer spring rates ride better... otherwise, why wouldn't race teams just use factory suspension components? Why would there even be a market for stiffer aftermarket shocks? I say you're comparing apples to oranges, and all you've been eating is apples...JBLoudG20 said:luck, schmuck :lol:
I know three other guys dropped on stock shocks, still running fine...
