Part# 6366.140. Application:

03-04 INFINITI FX35 AWD Drop (F/R): 1.2"/1.2"

An Eibach Pro-Kit is designed to reduce the fender-well gap by safely lowering your vehicle, giving it a more attractive, sportier stance. The Pro-Kit is the perfect compliment to any vehicle, whether in stock form or fitted with a larger tire and wheel package. The Pro-Kit will set your vehicle off from others, giving it "The Look" you want.


So TEMPTED!

It's listed as FX35/45 in Eibach's site. So I'm sure it'll fit both models.

The pro-kits are progressive springs so I think ride quality won't be affected much if at all. I just wonder what the FX would look like dropped 1.2".

wouldnt the weight diff. of the v8 vs. v6 make the drop not the same amount?? (provided they are using the same spring kit for both models)??

Hmm... well considering it is only about a 90lb difference between the 2 motors, the drop due to weight wouldnt make much of a difference.

The only thing i'm concerned about is how the drop will affect the camber of the wheels. I'd hate for the drop to promote uneven tire wear. The Prodrive active suspension kit (which uses Eibach springs) may correct for this, as the entire front assembly is replaced and they provide new mounts for the rear.

True, camber can be an issue. I have dropped a Honda Civic 2" (please keep the rice comments to yourselves, I did this about 9 yrs ago before the whole rice boom) with coilovers and I had no issues with camber and uneven tire wear. Apples to Oranges, I know, but 1.2" isn't a whole lot.

That's what makes me worry. I dropped my Honda Del Sol 1.75 inches with Eibachs and had terribly uneven tire wear. 1.2 inches isn't much, but we have wide tires; a little change could potentially make a big difference on the wear of the inner edge. I'll never drop a vehicle again wihout being sure I can correct the camber.

Tempted to drop mine... I need to call Eibach and ask about the camber issue. I wonder if they would be honest. :?

The FX45 weight over 300 lbs more than the RWD FX35, and most of that weight is over the front wheels.

If you guys go to tirerack.com and look up suspension you'll also see that H&R also makes a kit for our cars. Same amount of drop as well.

Just FYI! Please do post pics if anyone lowers their rides. I am considering but do not want the tire wear associated with it! Esp with $150-250 / tire!
