We here at SP Engineering paired up with Swift USA to test out their new prototype lowering springs for the 2012 GT-R platform. As you're aware 2008-11 GT-R's were equipped with softer spring rates from the new 2012 models (18KGM's in the front) which lead to the creation of SPEC R springs by Swift.

Swifts Prototype Spec R lowering springs come in at a firm 19.7KGM for the fronts and 9KGM for the rears. Allowing for a much more solid ride as well as approximately 1" drop all around. Please keep note that these springs are still in the testing stage so numbers may change.

These springs were installed on one of our clients (Mike's) MY12′s GT-R. Currently our client is happy with these springs as they are stating "The very first thing I noticed from the new Swift Spec R springs was my cars ride height. From my first initial drive I noticed that these springs are much stiffer. I also noticed the handling was a lot better through turns. I really like the overall height now, it gives my car an even better and much more aggressive look with my setup."

The current price on these springs is still TBA/TBD stay tuned for more updates!

I just had Swift springs in my 2012 and the car does not have such a rake as the pictures show above.

According to Sonic MS, my Swift springs are the new version which were just released. Not sure if they are the same as what SP Engineering is referencing above, but I must say the ride is smoother than stock in COMF mode and more aggressive in R mode which is amazing! I'm very pleased with the drop and ride quality!

Here is a low-res pic of the drop height:

There is no pricing at this time. This is the first prototype and testing isn't complete. We will keep you posted. There may be changes to the height as the rears seem to be high or the fronts are a little low.

More updates soon.

The Swifts you see now are just the SPORT Springs. These are SPEC R's which are still under development.
