You probably want to go with the Prokits. Even then, I would match them up with some better struts, such as the KYB AGX. I think you'll still see premature strut wear because the Prokit drop is on the edge of being too much and the spring rates are too soft. You definitely do not want to put the Sportlines on. They will lower the car way too much and you'll have a really crappy ride.

Now, I don't know if Eibach makes either spring for the NX. I know they used to, but IIRC, they are not in production anymore. There are some alternatives, thoguh. I have all of the specs and if you remind me, I'll email them to you later when I have access to them.

I have the kyb agx struts already, but I have them with intrax springs and I want springs that are stiffer, my under standing of the intrax springs they have the same spring rate as the OE ones. im not in for ride comfort to much more for performance.

Why would you do that? The Sentra springs are shorter than the NX springs, so they will drop the car way too much. I had some prototype Sentra springs on my car and they made the car slammed. It rode like **** too.

Don't bother putting the Sentra lowering springs on an NX. I couldn't find my notes on the springs, but there are other vendors out there. Hypercoils might have a set coming out soon and I think ST might make a set. Sprint possibly? Check around. You'll find them.
