Hmm, better model of Tein for a B14. What would that be?? The only other one that I can think of that may be workable on a B14 is the HA for the JN15. Yes it may be better, but the rates are way off since the HA is designed for a hatch back.
The B14 SS kit will have 336F 280R rates.
The JN15 HA uses 448F 280R rates.
From what I have heard the HA kit is a little better than the SS. If you wanted to go racing I would almost get the HA and change the rear rates to about 400, maybe even a little higher. That is of course if the rear dampers can handle that much spring. For a daily driver/weekend racer I think SS would be the way to go. I am seriously considering getting that kit myself.

BTW ILP, how much do the coilover springs cost by themselves. If I get the SS kit I may want to bump the rear rates up to to the same as the front to get rid of some understeer depending on how the 336 280 feels. What, if any rates are availibe between 280 and 336?


vrux, I know you have already seen some of this, but I dont think the others on the BB have.

What doesnt seem right about it. Looks like they thought about the 2 biggest problems B14 owners have. Lack of travel in the rear and big front wheel gap when lowered evenly front and rear. Although it seems like it might be a tad too much front lowering. the front rates look stiff enough to help keep you off the bumpstops somewhat though. Cant remember the Sportline rates at the moment, but comparing the two could tell you more.

Tein springs
2.4" front, 280lbs/in
1.2" rear, 168lbs/in

Eibach springs

95-99 Eibach Pro-Kit Linear 159.9 lbs/in...Progressive 137.1/257 lbs/in 1.4" drop front and rear
95-99 Eibach Sportline Linear 148.5 lbs/in...Progressive 117.1/228.4 lbs/in 1.9" drop front and rear.

Looks like the Tein springs would not bottom out as much becasue they are linear and do no have the soft "section" like the Eibachs.

Found out a little bit about the camber plates, AKA pillow mounts
and the EDFC:

After chatting with a few people I found that the pillow mounts from the N15 HA kit *may* work with the B14 SS kit. I talked to someone who is going to try them. Will keep you posted.

EDFC info: Teins site says the EDFC can be used with the B14 SS kit, but you have to modify the hood. Again, I know someone who is going to do this. Will keep you posted.
