I'm not sure if they are making springs specific to the SpecV but the stock SpecV spring rates are pretty high and I know the Eibach kits for the other B15s aren't as high as the SpecV.

Stock SpecV spring rates are:
325 in/lbs front
375 in/lbs rear

Good Luck.

I would recommend strongly against the current eibach lineup for use on your specv. The spring rates are simply too low to properly lower our cars. For your specv, the springs I would recommend are progress, intrax, or the "specv" eibachs once they are released.

If they were made specificly for the SpecV they should be good. But the SpecV is on the same chassis (B15) as the older sentras so you could put Eibach springs in for them.

The struts and shocks on a SpecV are tuned for higher rate springs. In face I believe the Sportlines for the B15 have lower rates than the stock SpecV.

I heard Progress Springs were pretty good. I know a place where you can get them for $130 shipped. PM if anyone wants info. I don't have them on my car, so not sure how the performance of them are. Just my $0.02

I really second this. Don't go with Eibach unless you get their new updated Pro Kits that have better rates than what they have for B15's right now. Progress, IMO is what you should go after. ;)
