That way you can just ago ahead and get the '99+ fleabay coilover kit.
This sounds like a good idea, although I'm a little vague on what I need to do this. Since I already have the AGX shocks made for the NA and a set of Fat Cat Motorsports bumpstops, how would converting to NB upper shock mounts effect me?

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.

Thanks for the info, but if I were to buy this, would I benefit very much by order the Fat Cat Motorsports shock mounts over this? Obviously the Fat Cats are more expensive, but is it a justified price? Also, do I have to modify anything, or when I order the parts, is it just a bolt in procedure? Last question, where you mentioned the NB lower shock retaining washer, you said it was replaced by a washer in the Tein Basic Kit, something I don't have, I just have a set of AGX's, so do I need those lower washers? Thanks!

I don't really know what the difference is between Shaikh's FCM shock mounts vs. the stock NB mounts. Yes, I guess you'd also need the NB lower shock retaining washer, as I grabbed my quote from a post about using them with the Tein Basics. You could always e-mail Shaikh to find out the difference.
