One of the most stunning side profiles in the entire automotive world. Particularly for a full tilt race car.

Demo Set of Ohlins Coilovers for 350Z/G35 for Sale

14 May



We have a set of very gently used (under 1000 miles) set of Ohlins Road and Track coilovers for sale to suit the 2003-2008 350Z and 2003-2007 G35 coupe and sedan (non AWD model only). These were used for demonstration purposes only and are in as-new condition. Shown unassembled out of the box in the picture, but you will receive them fully assembled upon delivery.

These feature Ohlins DFV valving, pillowball mounts front and rear, 2 way height adjustment. These allow for over a 2 inch drop, yet maintain the OEM rear suspension layout. Out of every coilover we have used on these cars (over 20 combos to date), these are, without question, the most composed, balanced set. The valving adjustments are meaningful….a click makes a difference that can immediately be felt.


•Spring Rates: Front: 572 lb/in, Rear: 315-400 lb/in (very slightly progressive)

•High quality lightweight aluminium construction

•Gas pressurised with Nitrogen to reduce oil cavitation

•Single adjustable with 40+ clicks of rebound adjustment

•Internal gas reservoir

•Threaded spring platforms on damper body for independent spring preload adjustment

•Independent ride height adjustment via threaded lower mount

•Fitted with camber adjustable pillowball top mounts (where applicable)

•All dampers are dyno tested and matched before delivery to the customer

•Dampers can be revalved to suit specific customer requirements

We sell these new for $3359+$65 shipping in the 48 states. We are offering this set for $2695 delivered in the 48 states. Worldwide shipping available for an additional cost. Contact us at z1sales@z1auto.com for ordering details. This is a private sale.

This might be the nicest Z32 I’ve ever seen. The Z32 has aged particularly well I think – doesn’t give away that its a 20 year old.

Not sure on spec, but I will try to find out
