looks like you bought it already !!... neway, my opinion would be that if a company listed those spring to cover 87 to 03 sentra... well they obsolutely wrong... cuz just between b12 and b14.. there is difference...

I'm running an eibach pro kit springs/ tokico shocks set up on my sentra, and the handling of the car improved considerably. The ride is a little harsh, but I don't mind. It's more of a personal preference. The drop is decent, but not really that much. I'm running 15's, so there's still quite a bit of a wheel gap in the rear. The fronts are cut (I didn't cut them, I bought them off Charles aka HybridDet who cut them) and the drop is really nice up front. With 16's though I think that the pro-kit would work out pretty nice, or even the sportline kit if you want even more of a drop. I've never heard of that company of springs before. I've seen that kind of stuff a lot on ebay. If they fit they'll probably give you a decent drop, but I don't know how well they'd improve your handling performance.

i still stick with the 2" drop from sprint and KYB Gr'2s my car doesnt rub since i got the new struts on thats with 205/40/16's i originaly had 205/50/16's which is vertually the same ratio as a 205-40-R17 there was minor rub but nothing to hurt anything , just roll the fenerwells and you will be fine. Anything lower you will have to get a canber kit.. happy dropping :) ridem low ;)

man those angel eyes are not just a little more lol they go for a pretty penny lol



the B12 corners will fit on there perfect with the BMW lights the only problem is we dont have any clears aftermarket but there is a b12 series over in europe that ive seen having them so we will see im gonna take my time on it.

im going to recreat the front end much like the front grill on the BMW


there will definatly be a couple of hours of body work involved in doing it right though.
