i want to drop my 1995 se-r but i dont know what springs or coilovers are good.
i was considering the eibach pro kit and then i figured in a month im gonna want to drop it even more.
the sportline kit is the one i want to put on, but i dont know if they ride good.
anyone have experience with the ground control coilovers or the weapon R coilovers?
anyone know or can give me help?
i was gonna put the kyb agx's.. but i saw kyb gr2's. they have a shock and strut in one so with these i could put coilovers, right?
thanks a lot

The budget setup are the AGXs and Prokits. They are worlds better than stock, look good, and handle well. Just be warned that B14s don't have much suspension travel to start with and you will bottom out much more often. Just make sure you trim those "donuts" off the dustboots/bumpstops to give yourself more travel.

The AGXs with the GC coilovers is the next step up. The higher rate springs will help handling and ride quality over the Prokits.

Beyond that are entire setups from Motivational, and two other companies that ecsape me at the moment. There is an older thread in the General forum that goes over all three of these company's product in a lot of depth. Try searching on Motivational in the General forum.

Ding Ding Ding, correct. Seriously though, any of those combinations will give you much better handling. I would avoid comanies like aerospeed and others who sell coilovers and such for 179 dollars. They are not very high quality. You get what you pay for.

ya, the agxs are struts, and with the g/c setup, you will need new struts. also, motovational makes them, but they are kinda pricy.

Only if you get the wrong length spring for them
