I've seen some of you guys mention that you have "coilovers" on your b15s. I am curious on which companies make coilover kits for our cars. I am willing to buy a set once spring hits. Please, there's gotta be atleast 3 brands out there!

Ground Control has them out for b15s??? I always liked GC! Do you know how far I can lower it? Also, do they have aftermarket shocks for the b15 to go along with the set of coils?

?how much did your hp set cost?

From what I heard Darkside is right. You have to modify the B15 strut to accept the B14 coilover sleeve and inserts. Ground control seems to be very willing to build anything you want...provided they can have a car to work on. That seems to be the problem. No one can get a B15 to them to use as a prototype. If the B14 and B15 struts are so similar, I doubt it would take much for them to manufacture a B15 specific coilover.

im sure they work, but they werent made for the b15. Mike K said the Ground Controls from the b14 would work but needed moddin to properly fit. If they were the same, Eibach wouldnt have made a new spring specifically for 00+ sentras.

also to remind everyone that is thinking about getting coilovers for the B15,,,,there isn't a aftermarket shock out yet for our cars....you would have to use the stock shocks and eventually they'll go..

it's not just you it's the shock your stock shocks wasn't made for the abuse caused by you car keeping them compressed when it's lowered and then when you hit a bump your bottoming out the shock...

I mean if i knew someone was in the production of an aftermarket shock for our cars then i would get the coilovers now and throw them in and then replace the shocks when they come out...
but then i wouldn't want to deal with noise ..
