Coilovers for my maxima?

I've been looking into getting coilovers for my 01 Max but everything is either for 350z or g35. Are they compatible? What kind of coilovers do you use? Have a link to a pair? Please help! Don't wanna buy some and have to return them cause they don't fit...

I recently installed a set of K-sport Kontrol coilovers and I really like them. The ride height is set independently of the spring tension so they can be tuned much more precisely. Older style coilovers adjust the height by changing the spring tension so you have to live with the stiffness that comes with the height you want. With the K-Sports you set both how you want them.

They are very nice quality. These are made in Japan and NOT the typical cheap Chinese crap that comes from eBay.

They also have a built in camber plate for the fronts. Lowering a car requires some sort of camber adjust.

I got them here and they were the best price at the time. Very helpful on the phone too. These guys actually have a custom suspension shop so they're not just selling these along with a million other products they know nothing about.

what kind of prices are we talking ? =) and OP there are some opinions that Tein are comfier than most C/O's because they utilize stock mounts and not pillowball mounts.

I paid around 650 for all 4 and I believe about 150 for the controller and stepping motors of the EDFC. I took out brand new Tokico's and H&R springs and couldn't be happier. The Tokico's started rusting after just a few months and a few hundred miles. So I just got them off the car.

I've got those same teins redrilled to work on my 4th gen and I love them. Adjustable damper, I have mine set at the mid setting and I'm dropped pretty low and the car still rides great. I'd buy them again the price is unbeatable

Just found pics of the K-Sports. They're also have the adjustable damper and will work with the EDFC system.
They have a 3rd locking ring that lets the leg thread up and down while the spring tension stays the same. Once you have the tension set correctly, you simply loosen the ring and turn the assembly to raise or lower the car.

They also come fully assembled with the mounts included. These pics are how they came straight out of the box.
