Okay guys, I've found a good deal on some aerospeed coilovers that I'm trying to buy for my 200sx. However, they are coils for a b14 SENTRA, so will they still work on my b14 200sx properly?

And if so...... when I drop it, do I need to get new shocks/struts? Also do I need to align the car again? And if I go without the new shocks/struts then will I have a rough ride on my stock wheels? I don't want to lose my nice smooth ride so if I need to get it all now (shocks/struts, coils, etc) then I'm just going to do it all at once and have it done right :).

Thx in advance for any help

GET GC coilovers, not arospeed crap, get KYB AGX shocks, Motivational rear shock mounts and don't lower the car more than 1"

I agree....areospeed coilovers will lock on you. Their build quality is extremely weak. Thank goodness it wasn't from my own experience....but at the expense of a friend's. :D

yeah dude

yeah dude......arospeed-crap, ground control- the best, pair these with KYB AGX shocks and you are good to go! Dont lower your car too low, only maybe if your entering her into car shows. Also while your at it if you can get the energy suspension control arm bushings. The really help in stiffing the cars handling and ride. They also help to keep caster camber and alignment correct. From what I hear if you wanna lower your car that low your OEM bushings are gonna go sooner than later. Peace!

yes the sentra and 200sx share he same suspension parts,if your going to work on the suspension do springs,struts etc all at once it will save you money in the long run

i have AROSPEED 2"springs and kyb agx struts and the car handles like a f16 fighter in the turns

what's up with hiting arospeed... i got a set of arospeed coilovers on mine, and it hasn't failed me yet... i've had them for about a year now... that's on stock everything else and front and rear strut tower bars...

the car is being used for drifting (illegally), and as a daily... so who knows... it just depends on how you torture your suspension... with enough torture, any suspension setup will break...

suspension is really not that bad... shocks and struts aren't blown yet... surprised the sh!t out of me considering there are construction sites everywhere over here... who knows... maybe it does depend on how much it gets tortured... oh well... if it breaks, it breaks... i'm not gonna worry about it until it does...

I have to post in this thread, just have to. Go check out the "eibach problems" thread while I go beat my fingers with a meat tenderizer to keep from going any further here.
