65 degrees of lock, parallel steering. As an option, there is a possibility to buy Ackermann adjustment kit. You can tune your steering geometry either towards positive or negative Ackermann in just a few minutes even at trackside without messing up an alignment.
Adjustable lock stopper.
About the same weight as original aluminum suspension. All the metal components on Wisefab 370Z front suspension are from high strength steel, including sheet metal components, tubes, tube ends and rod end housings. Rod ends and spherical bearings are used, no rubber bushings.
Higher roll center (RC). Lowering the drift car is a must to increase performance and handling, but this would mess up the original factory designed kinematics. It lowers the roll center and increases camber gain. On Wisefab knuckle, both joints are dropped, which brings the front RC up on lowered car, providing higher roll stiffness and letting to remove the front anti roll bar (sway bar) that is quite difficult to package with that high lock angles.
Very good camber control and minimal bump steer with high steering angles. On drift cars the dynamic camber and bump steer is much more important than static. With our kinematics we have assured that the camber would provide very good front grip and bump steer is minimal at all the range of steering.
Steering jacking control. During steering the car chassis is moving up and down – this is called jacking. Steering jacking is caused by combination of caster, KPI, trail and scrub. On road cars, this effect is used sometimes to balance the car or to help to turn in. During drifting, when steering angle is much bigger, jacking is also bigger, even with the same geometry and it could become a problem. We have changed the geometry that it doesn’t cause any handling issues.
Consistent and predictable self-alignment torque. Caster is not the only important parameter to provide sufficient self-alignment torque especially at high lock. It’s the combination of different parameters to maintain consistent trail and self-alignment torque. With our setup the steering wheel turns always to the direction of movement and doesn’t get stuck at full lock.
Adjustable spring and shock absorber motion ratio. The shock lower bracket has 3 attachment possibilities, which allows to change suspension stiffness and handling very quickly.
Other components, packaging and clearance.
This kit assumes car to have coilovers to have enough clearance. Ride height is designed to be ~80mm from front subframe to ground Dependent on rim width and ET, wider fenders or fender flares would be needed. Inner wheel wells do not need to be modified with tire diameter up to 635mm (215/45R17, 225/45R17, 235/40R17, 225/40R18 etc). Minimum rim diameter is 17?. Recommended backspacing is ~135mm (7? ET45; 8? ET35; 9? ET20). If ET is smaller, then wheels stay more outwards, if ET is bigger, then spacers need to be used. The kit is designed and manufactured the way that after installation and toe adjustment it’s ready to use right away.

Wisefab Nissan 370Z Rear Suspension Kit
Revised kinematics, not just dropped knuckle. - Nissan 370Z is a well designed car for enthusiast driver. The car performs well on streets and can be taken to a race track. If the focus is more towards performance, then the car can act even better with lowered ride height, but then the factory designed kinematics wouldn't work as it supposed to. The Wisefab kit would give a good kinematics with lowered car - higher roll center, antisquat, revised cambergain and bumpsteer for maximum grip.
About the same weight as original aluminum suspension - All the metal components on Wisefab 350Z rear suspension are from high strength steel, including sheet metal components, tubes, tube ends and rod end housings. Also for weight reduction and stiffness purposes all the suspension links are designed straight and tubular. Top arm is sheet metal boxed type. CrMo 3 piece design rod ends and spherical bearings used, no rubber bushings.
Easy camber adjustment - Special teethed washer is used for adjustment.
Bump steer adjustment - Possibility to adjust bump steer by changing rod end location in a slot.
Hub to hub length (track) is the same as original, as this is defined by halfshaft lengths. This kit assumes coilovers to adjust ride height and use spring around the shock not on rear link Possibility to use either original 370Z , 350Z or S-Chassis hub with bigger CV joint. Minimum rim size is 17"
