Searched the Forums this is what I found out. But I still have questions.

1. Yes, the teins ss will fit in a 2000 gxe. Anyone got it on for a 2000 gxe and have pics?

2. the threads are saying i need to change the mounts to a se/ser/spec v. didnt get a real definite "yes or no" to that question from the threads that were up. anyone know the real deal?

3. just really need to know if anyone got it on a 2000 gxe. hit me up!

thanks guys. appreciate it.

Yup you'll need to change the upper mounts to SE-R SpecV specs. The rest should be bolt-on because it's the same chassis, but the again, I've NEVER seen a GXE with that kind of top notch suspension. I'm getting the Tein Basic coilover setup for my SpecV... Good choice!

you dont have to change the uppermounts, i have them on my 01 GXE, just buy the suspention and install it, but you can opt for rear uppermounts for better suspention travel (i dont have that) and i never bottom out

What's this install like? Difficult?
supposidly its suppose to be pretty easy, but you need a spring compressor thingy to get the old suspention out, but re-use the stock upper-mounts since the SS dont come with pillowball uppermounts, and put em in, all in all i just got the place i ordered from to put them in ( since i bought em there install was cheap ;) )

2000 Gxe

Actually, you do need to change the upper mounts if you have a 2000 GXE.

Raptor did not have to change his mounts because his is 2001. Sometime between the years, Nissan changed the design.

And yes, I do have a 2000 GXE with the Tein SS suspension, and yes I did have to change the upper mounts. The bright side of all of this, is the installation gets even easier since you won't need a spring compressor.

That's it? Why not just save all the trouble and go buy new ones instead of taking the old assembly all apart? It would save lots of time right? Now that i know it is that cheap I am more interested in the basic. The time to buy it getting closer and closer :D

Ok, here is the info I got from him (please correct me if I am wrong in what I was asking for):

B13 Front are as follows:
54322-50Y00 - $8.00
54320-50Y11 - $25.00
54329-50Y00 - $10.00

for a grand total of $86.00 (2 of each, b15sentra.net member price)

Does anyone who has done the b13 swap know if you need all three pieces? And do you get the front and the rear from the b13, or the rear from the b14/b15?
