I have done a variety of cosmetic modifications to my 2015, it really looks sharp......but I think it would look amazing if it was lowered a couple inches. It’s the AWD version, and it’s my daily driver, so I have been a bit reluctant to do it because we live in MN where it snows about 5 months out of the year. I spoke with a local tech who has done lowering on Infiniti vehicles for years, he said lowering won’t have any impact on its ability to handle snow, but it will just be lower and more car-like.

Has anybody done this on a QX60? Aftermarket lowering springs are basically non-existent online.

I should add......mine has 14k miles, and is still under factory warranty. I’m wondering if the warranty will be affected?

Looking to do the same... I think a 3-4 inch drop, firmer shocks/struts, and sway bars would do well for this vehicle; I only drive it on Florida highways. Definitely post if you figure something out. I'll do the same.

This may require searching through the Nissan parts bin and seeing if there's anything that could work to modify this suspension...

This is a trend I'm seeing now. These days, a lot of cars have high theft rates that owners tend to lower their vehicles to protect them. Good luck.
You lost me Jesca, how does lowering the vehicle 4 inches protect it from theft — or are you saying Vehicles that are lowered are stolen more often?
