Default Ground control

With my ground control coil over kit from my NA work on an NB? That's all....

You could do some trimming on the NA hats to fit (or on the chassis). I had a set of Koni yellows and eBay collars and springs. I didn't make it past the rear, but the length of the shock looked correct and the bolts on the NA hat lined up...but the center hole on the NB was too small for the NA hat to fit through.

And, the spring perch was different enough between the two that I didn't feel comfortable putting it together.

And, the thickness of the NB hat bushings is thicker than the NA, so I couldn't get the shaft through far enough to get the nut on the threads.

It could work, but I gave up and sold them to a friend with a NA.

Are you swapping the illuiminas too and don't you have NB mounts on them already? If so, yes they will work, you'll just have to adjust the ride height.

I will probably get new Illuminas since these already have like 25k on them. So I would order NB Illuminas, I would obviously have Nb top hats and the NA GC coil overs.
