Company I was thinking of earlier was B&G Suspension
Good comments, Skywagon - also not looking for anything extreme - my previous car was a '03 WRX with mild lowering springs, wouldn't want the LEAF to be quite that stiff but if it rode similar to that on stock bits or just slightly stiffer that'd be very good. I suspect some some of the guys here who came from BMWs would be emulate the ride from those cars.
About 1.5" of lowering would be a good target.
If Versa suspension bits fit (are they an exact match aside from spring rate/length?) - does anyone make coilovers for that? Then it'd be easy to swap out springs for the appropriate rate/length since they're standard sizes.
EDIT: Looks like quite a few manufactures make coilovers for the late model Versa: Tein, D2 Racing, KSport, Tanabe at least...
I'm not worried about negative camber - generally strut suspensions don't pick up that much negative camber (I would welcome about 1* negative camber) and if it does end up with too much - camber bolt can take care of that easily.
What are the stock alignment specs?

Just about perfect - someone needs to start taking hub-center to fender lip measurements.
EDIT 2: Forgot about the rear beam axle - not going to get coilovers on back there so springs/shocks are the only option.
