Datsun Roadster & Fairlady Rear Lowering & Competition Leaf Spring Set US Made

NOT to be confused with the Nissan Motorsports, NO ARC, 55020-25510 HARD springs that were sold by Nissan Motorsports.

These US made reproductions offer a ride height that will LOWER the car in the back with TWO different spring rates available to choose from. The 1st spring rate is a stock rate of 158 LBS. This will give you a nice balanced look when using lowering springs on the front and a comfortable ride in the back with good performance. In other words you will achieve the "Lowered competition look" without having a rougher ride in the back see 1st PHOTO: Our rear springs with a set of Mike Young Front Competition springs. 185/70/14 tires on 14 inch rims. We call these 55020-25511.
