What stock suspension does the Nissan 350Z Z33 come with (and why is it worth switching out)?
The Nissan 350Z Z33 comes with a stock suspension system that includes independent double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension, with stabiliser bars at both ends. The stock suspension is designed to provide a comfortable ride and adequate handling for daily driving, but it may not be ideal for more spirited driving or track use.
Upgrading to aftermarket coilovers or suspension components can provide several benefits, such as improved handling, adjustability for different driving styles, and a lower ride height for a sportier appearance. Aftermarket coilovers and suspension components are typically engineered to provide more precise handling and better stability in high-speed driving situations. Additionally, they often feature adjustable ride height, damping, and spring rates, allowing the driver to fine-tune the suspension setup to their specific preferences and driving conditions.
What is the Nissan 350z Z33, and how does it differ from the other 350z vehicles?
The Nissan 350Z Z33 is a specific model within the Z series, which was produced from 2002 to 2009. It is available with either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission as well as a sport-tuned suspension, larger brakes, and lightweight alloy wheels, all of which contribute to its strong performance and responsive handling.
The Z33 is known for its sleek and sporty styling, which was updated from the previous generation of Z-cars. It features a long hood, short rear deck, and prominent fender flares, all of which help to give it a distinctive appearance.
STANDARD MONOTUBE COILOVER DESIGN
Supashock’s Standard Monotube Coilover design is far superior to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) designs. The monotube configuration offers greater piston area, oil capacity and separation of oil and gas, giving you greater performance, strength, cooling and adjustability. Supashock coilovers offer consistent and tunable damping compared to a twin-tube damper commonly found in OEM designs.

There is no detriment to the function or safety of coilovers. Returns under warranty for noises associated with the pillow ball upper mounts will not be considered. For investigative work related to coilover noise, workshop rates will apply if products are found to have no issues.
- In some vehicle set-ups, the spring will be separate from the damper. This design will sometimes be respected, and then you will receive a damper and spring separately. Height will generally be changed via a supplied adjustable spring seat.
