Default HKS Hipermax ii - Fit on my NB?

So from what I understand there aren't many differences between the NA and NB suspension but the only thing I've been able to find is people trying to put NB suspension onto an NA car. What about the other way around?

This is the suspension I want but it's only listed for 90-2001??

From my reading I've found that the top hats are different. The NB allows for more shock travel for better ride quality. Here is a picture showing the NA and NB designs. Not sure if this will come into play with aftermarket coilovers though.

Why would you spend almost 2k on suspension that isn't Xida?

Irrelevant I guess. Let's say I'm not paying 2k for them.

As long as you've got the top hats, which you do, it should work for all NA/NB years.

They should fit, but if it's an NA part on an NB, your ride height adjustment will be limited in how high you can go.

BTW: Those are low *** spring rates. LOL at 340 in/lb springs being considered "still street-able". My shitty tein basics run that in the rear.

Konis and ground control would most likely be better. For that cash; flex, monoflex, xida, afco, FCM, etc. would all be better choices. 30 vague adjustments are pointless compared to good damping.

EDIT: Hell, I'd bet FM springs run higher rates. Those are junk spring rates.

The spring rates are 392/280.
