Does anyone have pics of B-13s on different lowering springs?
(stock, 1inch, 2,etc)I need an example so I know what drop I should get. Is it necessary to replace the shocks when lowering or can u just replace the springs and keep the stock shocks?

Check my website. My car is wearing Eibach prokit springs, supposedly a 1.2 inch drop at all four corners. I personally think it's more than that. Check back in a week or so, I will have pics up of the car with Generation 2 hypercoils, which are a pretty honest 1" drop. Link is in my sig.

Keep in mind, a lot of people think that the rear of the B13 drops more than the front; those people are stupid. The front wheel arch is simply taller than the rear arch, and when you lower the car this proportion remains constant.

Hope this helps.

Mine is riding on Eibach Sportlines, which is a 1.5" drop all around. I'd suggest you replace the struts with aftermarket units, as the higher spring rate will wear out your struts in a couple months.

They're $tillens. Stillen's retail on them is $180 each, but I picked up the pair for $60 on ebay last year.

I have Eibach Pro Kits 1.2" drop with Gabreial struts. No complants. Please replace your struts when you replace springs, asap. :)

How low I go depends on my rim size. What is a good drop for 16 inch rims? Can you make me one of those grilles?

its easy to make if u have an electric sander. all u need to do is sand off the black plastic from the grill and replace it with the mesh.
