I have the TEIN Wagons (made for the bB not xB), and custom height/rate coilover springs from TEIN. I love them, and would only swap them out if I was to get air.

The Wagons are more closely related to the Basics, but had a softer spring rate.

You should check out Progress Coilovers, the get the best lowering for the money. The ride is freakin sweet too...it took me a little while to get use to it now i wouldnt change my coilovers for any other company...expect Air Runner that is

Anyone here run the Tanabe coilovers??? Someone recommend those to be but not sure what to go with.. My original ideal was to run the tokico HTS and Tanabe Df210's...

What are your suggestions.

Mkkkkkkk....

I had a set of DF210s on mine, and dropped it 2.5-2.75 which wasnt too bad really. Ride is pretty stiff and handles really well.

Progress coilovers is what I have now, and they drop it insanely low, but then again the ride is "soft" and doesnt handle quite as well as DF210s. Theyre made for more of the drop, instead of handling. The ride isnt as bumpy on Progress, but then again it wasnt too bad on DFs either.

Teins are a weak drop IMHO. So are Tanabes. They dont drop it worth a damn. Just depends what you want for the budget. If you got the cash, get the Cuscos because the ride will be sporty and the drop will be low. Same goes for the Blitz Wagons from what Ive heard. If youre on a budget and want slammed, do Progress. If you're on a budget and want sporty handling with less of a drop, look at Tein. If you're on a budget and want a really crappy drop, get Tanabes.

I like my drop on Progress personally. Not even down all the way. Can without a doubt easily lay out with the setup Ive got.

I can still go an inch lower, but I wouldn't be able to drive it anywhere.



My wheel well archs are at 23 inches up front, and 23.25 inches in the rear.

I'm going to have to raise my xB when I put on the 18x9.5s in the rear and 18x8.5 up front.
