hi all, i was wondering i wanted to lower my 95 sentra gxe and saw that they said not to go under 1.5 inches. my question is i was looking at the eibach 1.4 and went to a shop that said i would have to get a new camber set priced at 550 for the springs labor and alignment. this seems high and i was curious do i need the alignment/cambers or should i shop around?
:cool:

So the shop is selling you the Eibach springs, the alignment, and the labor for $550?? That is too much. I dont know if you need a new camber set. 1.4 isnt that much of an aggressive drop. I plan to do a 2" drop and I definetely would need new camber.

you wont need a camber kit unless you really want adjustable camber THAT bad. the only camber i saw when doing my own alignment in school was a -1.0 on the front left or right, i forgot. but it rides great, id recommend the eibach prokits + kyb agx combo, it makes it a whole much funner.

I lowered my car with Eibach pro-kit and you don't need the alignment kit.
You said $550.00 for the springs + installation??
I paid $450.00 just for installation
I agree with aznvirus best combination kyb-agx+pro-kits
Handling is awesome.
I think is -1.0 front right

dropping it.........

i bought my eibach pro-kit for 235 and put them on myself and then aligned them, they still fell within specs, and like everybody said, 1.4 is not too much to need a camber kit, rule is if you go lower than 1.5", then, unfotunately you will need a camber kit, and who has it, i think stillen and jwt, also the only thing adjustable on a stock b14 is the front toe, no rear camber/toe and no front camber/caster, which kinda really suck because it shows "how much they spent on designing our suspension", also i've heard about these gold lines, i think, that they don't pay too much attention to performance, just for the heck of dropping the car, but it's your choice, "be enlightened grasshopper......"

You sould not need a camber kit! If you take your car to a good shop, tehy should be able to set it to specs. I have a '95 200SX with Eibach Sportline's on AGX's. I didn't get any additional aligment kist or anything alike. Once I got my new wheels, I took it to a local (very reputable) tire shop. The guys said that it was an easy aligment job. So if they could align it with sportlines, I'm sure Pro's won't be that much of a headache.

if 1.4 " isnt low enough for you then go with the 2 inch drop from gold lines.

Sportlines are a 1.9 drop....and forget the camber bolts bro. If you really have to have some adjustment, read Kojimas articles on suspension, and the "slotting" of the strut for a little camber adjustment

the sportlines for the b14 sentra/200sx lower it 1.9" all around and what i've been told, although not tested, is that up to 2" yer fine and won't need a camber kit, but i'm sure that also depends upon the specific car. by the way, I put sportlines w/ agx's on the rear of my b14 n it bottomed out jus pulling out of a driveway...I then realized that the shocks were on the softest setting of #1!!! :-x but the shocks r fine but now i hear a thunk noise when i go on dips and the rears get compressed a lot like something is loose and I even tried different shocks and it still makes the noise. does anyone know of something back there that could get knocked loose from a hard hit?

My car is lowered with Eibach Sportlines (1.9") in the front and Eibach Pro Kits (1.4) in the rear. I needed no camber plates and you won't either if you go with the Sportlines or Prokits. Just take it to the alignment shop after its lowered or you will kill the front tires really fast.
