well guys and gals I recieved this response from KYB about a shock for us....

We do not offer shocks for the 2000 & 2001
Possibly next year.
Check back at the end of the year.

Hey Gene! I just wanted to say that I rode in Brandon's car today, the dude that lives in Virginia Beach, and it rides SMOOTH as all hell! I was totally doubting it, but all he did was drop with Sportlines, and it rode great! I just wanted to pass on that when you get yours, you should just go ahead and replace them. I bet you'll be happy!

Also, just to put in a good note, Brandon's car is TIGHT! He's got Sportlines, custom Tsudo Exhaust, and custom Iceman Intake. Not to mention his ICW rims and ghetto grill, I was very very impressed. The interior of his engine bay also looked really nice. I'm going back over to his place and going to take tons of pictures on Thursday. He's wife also has a 2001 Dodge Neon R/T. :)

I'm getting Sportline's as soon as possible.

hey Gene and Marvin, thanx Marvin for your compliments except there is one correction to your comment. My rims are 17" Katana K-6's. The ICW rims were the ones on my last 99 sentra remember? Well anyways me and Marvin will work on getting the pix up within the next few days so stay tuned.

So Brandon put the Eibach sportlines lowering spring with the stock shocks? and it didn't bottom out at all?
Nope, and you have to remember it's the Stage 2 suspension on his, not GXE suspension. I was really surprised.

remeber, the se with p/p sentra's have great struts/shocks. my uncle owns a local discount tire center and simple explained the diffrence.

a standard shock uses nitro with oil lube. hi-performance shocks have twin-tube with valve damping to prevent excessive bounce and firmer/quicker rebounds. basicly, our se's have a cheaper version of a hi-perf shocks like the tokico, without the adjustable part. i plan for him to order my a set of new stock se p/p strut/shock with h&r springs. a perfect combo.

not to worry of bottoming out, as long as you still have your bump-stop!

Dude, I'm on it, and I'm all about it dude!! I'm thinking between July sometime would be great! I have weekend duty a lot from now till my cruise in October, but let's plan something out for sure! You can also crash out at my place if funds is an issue. Brandon's got a nice pad...hehe...

ok....so is there any way that i can improve the shock on my car? I will take the koni what do you guys thing?
I definitely think you should either wait or get the SE PP shocks and struts. I'm definitely not sure about all the diferences and how easy you can swap, but I'm tellin you, I didn't believe that Brandon's car rode the way it did. Try it and see at least for all you SE's. Also, how much is it to get a SE PP upgrade? You might just be better off waiting cause of price.

If you do decide to get the SE pp shocks and you don't want to pay the stealership an arm and a leg then you might want to check http://www.copartfinder.com or check your local salvage yards for a wrecked SE pp with good shocks. Just a thought. later.

Hey once you get those sportlines put them on straight up and let me know what you think. Im also thinkin of getting the front air dams from Stillen. Let me know how far off the ground they are once the springs are in aight. Well hit us later.

I GOT AN IDEA!

Ok guys I just had a great idea! The SE-R and Spec V are supposed to have even better shocks than the SE pp, so how about waiting for the SE-R and trying to get a set of those! That would be awesome.....kinda like Honda folks using Type R this and that on their Si's and stuff! I am really considering this, as long as the price is not astronomical. Just another thought to ponder. later
