Been doing some research on the 2012 suspension. Seems that if you really want to reap all the benefits of the 2012 shocks, you need to change the upper and lower control arms to 2012 spec too.

For those who have done it, can you confirm? Also can anyone say whether the sway bar/mount points etc are different?

Several questions that always come to mind about the suspension are:

Are all OEM suspension changes made to the stock GT-R after 2009 by Nissan really any better than going with aftermarket parts?
What happens when you decide to go 285 square in old vs new suspensions? Would a 2010 vs 2012 suspension work better?
Were all suspension changes to date really to make it ride or to race better? Is a lower castor of 5 better with square 285's, compared to a castor of 6 in the 2012 model year.
What happens when you add coilovers and sway bars to old vs new suspensions? Regarding Daily vs Track?
Decisions, decisions...

I don't think anyone has done it.

We have tried our sway bars on 2012's and they work.
