www.Carparts.com lists B+G B15 coilover's for our cars! the part number checks out with the manufacturers website: http://www.b-gsuspension.com

it looks like a true coilover and has a limited lifetime warranty... anyone familiar with the company? they're kind of pricy at $1500...but if you get the 30% off deals like carparts sometimes offers, it could be an awesome deal.

some BG info....

B&G S3 Coil-Over Suspension
B&G Suspension introduces the new S3 Speed Sensitive Suspension for 2001. Utilizing Formula One shock technology B&G has designed a new S3 system to give you the optimum handling and control you've come to expect from B&G Suspension products. The new S3 system features an exclusive digressive valving, which automatically adjusts to changes in the road surface by softening or stiffening dampening forces. This exclusive low speed bleed system increases dampening forces under cornering and spirited driving while providing a comfortable ride at low speeds and on smooth surfaces. All S3 systems feature gold cadium plated steel shock bodies with up to 4 inches of ride height adjustment using the new S3 adjustment ring and locking collar. S3 spring sets are tuned for optimum handling utilizing B&G linear rate racing designs. Completing the package are indestructible spring separators with tender springs to maintain proper pre-load. All S3 shocks are completely re-buildable and can be designed with custom valving and spring rates for drag racing, road racing, and canyon carving. For the best coil-over suspension available, go with S3.


nice stuff!

How does this price compare to what some of the Honda guys are paying for comparable coil-overs? I'm sorry but I can't justify dropping $1,500 on a suspension set up. I am sure that I can achieve the set up that I want for much less than that. That is not saying that it will be as great at B+G or Intrax, but when I think $1,500 I think 1/2 to a supercharger.

ok, lemme see the best approach. ok, we know that honda parts are and will always be dirt cheap compared to ours. they have a readily available supercharger(s) and we don't. they have turbo kits available and we don't. (b15's)they have things we can only wish we had. you can get good headers for a civic for under $300 all day long. ours, well under $400.

for civics, the same caliber of true coilovers run $1000-$1600. ours start about $1500. simple supply vs. demand economics. you CAN get cheaper setups and if that is what you want and it gives you the ride you like, then more power to you. i am not trying to influence anyone to do something they do not want. just help by sharing what i've learned from experience.

i went the cheap way before and then rode in the same car with true coilovers and i will never do it any other way. the ride comfort was unbelievable for a 2" drop where mine was less. the ride was smooth, but when you hit the corners and had to break hard, fugget about it. no comparison. i would rather stay stock than go thru that again. my kidneys will thank me. :D

My Brother got DC Ceramic 4-2-1 headers for his Civic for $140 bucks at Moroso. I hate him now. :(

I just talked to B&G. They have nothing for us. They have a n15 (?) setup for the cars over in europe. I would venture a guess the setup is no where near the same. They don't plan on producing a b15 setup at least till the end of the year. So I guess they are being wishful thinkers on their website.

Oh well. Guess I will go pound on some more suspension makers doors.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I got almost the same answer as you did david when I called them.....I was very dissapointed when I got that answer and I let them know about,,,,,I was gonna actually invade my 401K account for the money for these things but after that little answer they gave me,,,I think I'll wait for something else to come along.....


Sorry B&G but you don't say you have something and come to find out that you totaly lied and don't even make them yet...

Sorry guys just venting a little steam...
