Basically, the NB upper mounts are better designed; they separate the spring and shock movement from each other so each can do a better job at what it does...they also allow more free bump travel in addition to what the FCM 'stops will give you. The FCM bumpstops and NA shocks are interchangeable with the NB Mounts. Also, the NB mounts put the top spring seat about 1/2" higher into the chassis/wheel-well, so if you used plain NA springs with NB mounts, you'd sit 1/2" lower. With adjst. coilovers, though, you can gain that ride height back if you choose and get even more bump travel.
I've posted a link in the past to the parts needed to do this. I'll see if I can find it.
Edit: Here's what you need -->
4 x NB Upper shock Mount ($14.95 ea. from Finish line performance)
4 x NB Upper shock retaining Washer ($0.99 ea.)
(There is an NB lower shock retaining washer, but it is replaced by a washer included in the Tein Basic kit, so there is no need to purchase those.)
4 x NB Upper shock bushing ($1.95 ea)
4 x NB Lower Shock bushing (1.95 ea)
+ shipping. I ordered them from www.finishlineperformance.com
, as I recall.
