    installed mine about 39k after I bought my Z, wish I had done it that day. WORTH EVERY PENNY! just be aware of different styles/manufactures as they will effect your ground clearance.

    I had a pair of Global West subframe connectors put on. Again, worth every penny. Also, not problems with ground clearance (car has Eibach pro-kit springs) and no problems with them in the way of anything.

    no..clearance problems...because of the way the exhaust was routed with the Eibach sportlines...after the sportlines and bilsteins settled it was just over a 2" drop
