Rough When Driving/going Over Bumps..


Recommended Posts

the best thing you can do is go out and take your wheel off or go full lock and check ur suspension if u dont know its got coilovers or not it may just jave lowered springs which are probably harder u need to know what u have before u say theres a problem

i said take it to a mechanic.. SAU can't see the suspension..

they will give you options.. you may have uber awesome drift spec coilovers and will give you standard r33 suspension for the cost of keeping your springs.. maybe.. prob not though..

but anyways take it to a mechanic or pedders or some shit and get them to inspect why its hard ride

Oh and joey's always an arsehole.. and that's why we love him

You have more than likely got some Jap Spec coilovers with a hard spring rate. Take the wheel off and check the shock (Tein is generally a popular coilover, there green). If you cant do that, take it to a local suspension workshop and they'll be able to help you out. If you would like to make the ride softer you will have to more than likely change the spring and or shock setting which will generally set you back around $350+ for a decent set of springs.

Not to mention a hard spring rate is illegal I believe

so.. what do i do to fix it? and how mch will it COST more importantly

Like some have said on here, take it to you mechanic to inspect it. They can find out whats suspension and springs you have.

Untill you find out what you have got, all I can suggest is change the suspension back to stock (Which you will probley have to find at a wrecker or in the For Sale Section of SAU).

Price on the suspension all depends on the seller but I can garentee you it will be cheaper then going to a Nissan dealer.

Or just change you springs to a softer set, which will be cheaper, but either way you will need to take it to your mechanic to get it done and get s quote from them, unless you wanna do it yourself...

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
    • Hey guys Was recently replacing the water pump and timing belt. Came across one of the washers for the timing gear and balancer were bent. Just wondering how that would of happened
    • Recently destroyed the front driver ABS wheel speed sensor on my ENR34 due to the iron knuckle rusting and seizing the sensor head. The other one on the passenger side has been soaking in penetrant for a few days, but I fully expect the same thing to occur. The wheel speed sensors seem to be specific to the AWD applications, and likewise the more readily available units from ER34s and S/Z chassis are not the same. An OEM unit seems to be available at $200 USD/ea, which is not ideal, but still fine. But if I'm in this boat in the future, those might not be available.   Does anyone know of any wheel speed sensor that uses the same head as the R34 GTR that could be used? Not overly concerned with cable lengths as wiring will be redone to accommodate PMU wiring.
