    Default Z32SE V6 Suspension Revival

    Hi All,

    I have a 2004 aussie release V6 (Z32SE) that seems to be getting a little tired with the handling.

    I've replaced shocks and springs roughly 1.5years ago with Bilstein B4's and Eibach springs. I didn't notice much of a difference with handling after the swap from the factory SACHS to be honest, more just visual appeal.

    Nowadays the front end seems really sloppy. I've replaced drop links and outer tir rod ends but any advice on what else I could do? Tracking seems fine and holds straight quiet well. Would just really like to tighten things up.

    Cheers.

    Have you checked the ARB bushes, inner tie rod ball joint and lower arm ball joint for wear too?

    I have the B4's and the Eibach springs too, and TBH they don't change the ride much from the standard, just better quality and should last longer. I think the B6 or B8 will give you a different feel.

    Thanks for the reply dae36! I'm just looking into those bits now; inner tie rods seem a common cause for front end sloppiness so i'll search for those first.

    BTW, any idea where online I can find some tie rod ends that will fit my Vectra that has sports suspension? Most on ebay say No Sports Suspension. What are the differences?
