This will show you a picture of what you need. You need the assembly on the right in the top picture.

Part numbers are:

15.29.04.003.0 for the spacers

80.0000.0006 for the perches

80.0000.0005 for the sleeves

Supposedly, they are cheap here, but you'll have to call for prices. I heard about 6 months ago that 4 of each totalled ~$130 from them. They have bumpstops too, and I've heard Koni-branded stops are cheap. Ask them which ones would work for you when you call about the sleeves/perches/spacers.

edit: found prices here; in fact, these parts are pretty cheap.

Thanks--Really helpful.

And BTW, I may be in your area Sunday. Might could drop your axles by. Depends on how much I can get done tomorrow.

That'd be great, just let me know if/when you're heading by.

I have 2 250lb springs for sale if you want them. I'd rather trade for parts though. I'll measure the lengths tomorrow if you're interested. That way you only need to buy 2 more springs...and you can get those from the honda-spring-trade-ring.

Actually I have 4 with perches...but I'm keeping those for myself.

If you decide to go as low as a 350# spring in the front, and use the Koni sleeves, buy these. Then you won't need the spacers/adapters for the front. Buy before June 30 and use the paypal code to avoid shipping charges.

See if they are rear springs.

LOL @ "as low". I think that's the range I want to be in. So you can run 2.25" without the adapters? Then why get the adapters and 2.5" springs?

Hey, I'm even lower than 350 (at 300) but so many here are running 500+ that I guess we're softies.

The advantage of 2.5" springs is that they're way easier to come by, so you can buy them cheap used, and swap rates all the time.

Buy these 350# for the front, and buy Hustler's 250# for the rear (assuming 8" length) and you're golden. That'd be a slick setup, especially since you already have an FM adjustable front bar (1" right?). That adjustment, plus the ability to remove the rear bar, should be all the adjustment you need to tune the balance of the car right to your tastes.

So, to confirm something:

If I have a set of Koni sports, and buy four of each of these part numbers, I would then need to source springs, bumpstops and tophats/mounts for a decent setup, correct?

^ Correct, although you can do a "decent setup" with the stock NA mounts, so long as you find an upper spring isolator.

So I got my suspension dilemmas figured out!

I got a set of Tein coil overs instead. :LOL:

No they are SS. But if you'd like to buy me some Flex I would run that instead.

Either way, it will be a huge upgrade from my 70K stock shocks w Eibach springs.
