If this is true, then can we use aftermarket shocks made for the G20s? Does anybody make a shock for the G20?

That is a tough one. Yes, the cars share the same powertrain, but remember they are not the same car. The brakes are the same, but I don't know if the strut housing is identical. Remember, the G20 is based on a totally different car than the Sentra.

Ground control *might* know the answer to this question. We know that the B14 struts will work with a little modification....who knows what might fit.

I know the only companies so far that make any aftermarket strut for a 1999-2001 G20 is TEIN and Koni (yellow) and that's it so far. as far as struts go. But as for fitment, i haven't a clue you may wanna check www.g20.net
under the "suspension" section it'll show some part numbers for various components, you can make reference on those and compare numbers. I might do a little research on this myself and see if I can come up with anything. It would be nice to know if I can interchange anything off of a b15 since I own a P11.

Well, the only thing i see so far for a b15 is a Koni(standard-whatever that means) strut cartridge for the front, meaning opening that sucker up and replacing everything and a Koni(Standard-again)complete replacement for the rear. and the rear's have an adjustable spring seat for ride height adjustment. I found all this info. on... www.tirerack.com
check in the suspension section for your year/make/model and it'll show you what I've told you. But all this could be a misprint so you might wanna call and make sure.

Koni STD shocks means that we have to use the OEM housing(cut and taken out the OEM struct). My friend did that w/ his Tiburon. Works OK. but not as stiff as you might expected. He said the setting is great for street but not for racing.. I wanted to do it 2, since I got my por-kit spring. But the problem is I leased my B15 .. worrying that might be a problem when I return the car later.... Good piece of info Nismoboy1 thank you .!!! : ) u get my B15 yelling for new shocks . haha

BTW what car is that in your sig ???

For those of you with dropped B15s... does EVERYONE have that funky noise in their struts? Am I the only one who DOESN'T have it? Just wondering. 2 1/2 months dropped and still going strong.


Also, what exactly is causing that noise? I keep hearing different things...

SR20DE 2K you r not alone. I got the same problem 2. I'm using pro-kit. The dealer told me that it was the upper mount pully hitting the struct... which is weird cuz only my front right hand side got the problem. Other 3 seem to be okey.

hey dood, dunno about those konis... when i did the search for older sentras 99-, it shows me the same shocks.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>


I would agree I also refferenced all the shocks with the B14 numbers and they all showed up the same number.....

I know a company called Hotshok has the B15 platform on the list for shocks in the near future......
