O.K. So let me make sure I have this right. If I use B13 KYB AGX front struts on my B14 w/Eibach Pro Kit springs I will have less of a bottoming out problem? And, do the B13 struts need any mods to fit?

b13 struts help prevent bottoming out and fit like the b14 struts no problem.

that is what ive been told .. correct me if im wrong.

knock knock....

only with Ground Controls..the spring perch is different, so the spring would sit lower if you use regular drop springs...you have to have GC's in order to actually benefit from using the B13 strut

If using Eibachs though, you can use the B13 front struts(on the B14) to get the front wheel gap to look more like the rear(less gap basically)...since we all know that using pro-kits with regular B14 struts results in the front sitting higher than the rear.

woah.
you can only benefit from the gained suspension travel of a b13 front agx if you have GC coilovers? why have i not heard this before? guess i have to investigate a little more. geez, i thought i had my suspension planned and ready to buy.

barnoun-i don't think the b13 fronts will make the car any lower than b14 fronts. (well, that's what i've been told)

The perches sit a little lower..so it will.....but you will lose precious travel....


Im working on an idea for B13's and B14's...to allow another inch of travel like the GC camber plates do....only with the $400 price tag..

more to follow..I have the idea drawn out...but need to look at manufacturing these pcs...please dont ask details..I dont have alot yet..:) Ill keep you all updated..and this will work with regular drop springs, as well as coilovers...it will not work with camber plates however...stay tuned for more info

I have b13 front struts on my B14(with stock springs), and the front gap did lessen a noticible amount after getting them installed(I had to get new struts/shocks, so I got B13 strut/ B14 shock gr2s).

b13 strut/shock

What's the difference between a shock and a strut I keep thinking it's the same but if I need (should get) b13 stuts with GC coilovers, is that refering to the kyb part size for the b13? Wanna get a new suspension, don't wanna buy wrong...

Shocks and struts both do the same thing, they just look different on the outside. Struts have a mount where the spring sits, while shocks don't. By the way, the b13 uses struts at all four corners, while the B14 uses shocks in back.

broke liar

okay I lied. I can't afford coilovers now so as I follow this thread I'm confused as to if I should still get a b13 sized kyb with prokit spings. Does one request that size/model when ordering? Lemmee know. Pablo

The KYB AGX B13 struts ONLY WORK ON B14's w/ COILOVERS....if you have regular drop springs....ie: Sprint,Eibach,H&R,etc...you have to buy the B14 struts.

I know a guy that had b13 struts with sprint springs and it fit fine. I have stock springs with b13 struts and it fits fine too. You're saying to get b14 struts with regular drop springs because b13 struts with regular drop springs leaves less suspension travel than the same springs with b14 struts, right?

CrunchyCookie: The b14 chassis cars indeed have struts in the front, and shocks in the rear. If you still aren't sure, take a look for yourself and you'll see it's true...regardless of what the computer at sears says.

YES! the perch sits about 3/4 inch lower than the B14 perch does...
