thanks guys...can't wait to have it on the car either..i can go lower now lol

one thing though, i was talkin to Erick (aireck) about the rear assembly...the threaded perch actually goes on top of the spring instead of the bottom...anyone seen another coilover set up like that for the xB?

Don't know, I've never dealt with Coilovers. But no, I have never seen them like that.

yeah i believe the preset height is around 2.3"-2.5"..i'm on Goldlines right now, which is a good 2" around...so yeah i'll probably go around 2.5"

JC
How much do you want for your Goldlines? I have Tein's, but I'm looking for a little more drop.

They are a little more drop than Tein's right?

um wow. that rear spring adjuster/perch looks like it's for a totaslly different car. it's a sleeve over. yet the xb cannot use that type. it needs a bolt thru the bottom spring perch. or welded to the upper mount or lower mount? odd.

From what I'm seeing, it's just the cup that the spring sits on. It's just like the TEIN coilovera, which I have.


The rear spring sit down on the spindle, so that way you can adjust ride height.. As for the welding, where the heck are you seeing that. The set up looks exactly like all the other coilover systems, excluding the camber plates.
(yes, thats me)
JMO though :D

see this? how is that perch going to stay in place? it needs to be bolted or attached to the torsion axle.




oh and every other xB coilover system i've seen is NOT like that.
