Best 5 Gen suspension setup

Hi family. So after 326k miles on my 02 Maxima, I finally sold it and got my hands on another 02 Max but this one is manual. I had Koni yellows and Eibach on my previous Max. I want to try another setup on my current Max and would like a different setup. Something no too stiff and not too low either as I have 350Z wheels on my current Max. Any recommendations for a good set up? Thanks family

As for struts not that many out there left,no Illuminas. As for springs, H&R still available as well as many others, I'm still looking for a good strut set for my mine.

I've been super happy with these.

Way better than the Eiback/Ilumina setup I had before. Better handling, no bottoming out and a good ride. independent adjustment of height and spring tension. They also come with a camber adjust for the front.

Tein street advance. I modified mine to go on my 4th gen they ride fantastic and I'm dropped kinda low. I actually have ksports on my other car, idk the mileage on them but they are trash compared to the teins
