I just checked Tirerack.com, and they are out of B15 H&R Springs. They are currently on backorder. I'd like to find someone that has a set left in stock (so I don't have to wait a month,) but I don't know where to look. Most shops seem to specialize in Honda/Acura stuff. Who else would stock a Sentra Spring kit?

Any Idea's? Thanks.

If you're buying H & R springs, try to get them from a local dealer...that way, if anything ****ty happens, you can return them with no hassles with re-shipping, etc.

Why? The guy who installed my Eibachs told me that not all HR springs are wonderful.

He recently installed one on a Neon (!) and the drop was about 3.25"!!! Eventually, the guy had to return to the stock springs...

well these h&rs are 1.4 back 1.6 front, so it shouldnt be that bad. dont ask richard at niskacks, he aint got none now, and if he did, he would have gotten them from tirerack.com too. thats where he gets his stuff.

should we really worry that much about replacing the springs. I heard there is only 5% more travel on the shocks and struts with the 1-1.5 inch drop in height. How long will our factory shocks hold out with the added stress (although little)? How do the H & R compare to the Eibachs?

Well ill the answer to your question is basically a catch 22 your damned if you do and your damned if you don't one person says this and another says that.....It all depends on what you want to do.....I think i'm gonna just wait till someone actually gets a Shock out for us to be on the safe side.....there is a few campanies that have shocks in the making for the b15 platform.....
