Whudda you guys think? Should I lower her?


She goes by Nancy. Right now she's not so fancy. But I'd like her to be :lol:


Open to suggestions.


A local guy is selling legacy Isc coilovers for $350. Or eBay bilstein struts and springs. Or I seem to be reading a lot about konis. We'll see.

Looking for some advice here. I have two 08 OBXT's and I feel the need to lower one after reading through this thread and V1. What are peoples thoughts on doing a full spec B conversion? There are two for sale near me with blown motors that would be ideal donors.

are you starting with a manual trans car? the auto to manual swap is lots and lots of work to do correctly. 5mt to 6mt is straight forward, as long as you have all the parts there.


be an awesome swap if you can get them for a good price. the Spec B does have some parts that are unique to the Spec B. personally i'd swap as much as from the Spec B as possible, except the rear springs. grab some LGT wagon rear springs, then you don't need the strut spacers for the rear.

the rears need rolled, they just barely rub with 3 people in it on big bumps, but no other rub. i'm running a 15mm adapter (instead of the usual 25mm) which doesn't push the tire out as far. the 245mm tire on the 8.5" wheels fills the fenders pretty well.


so what offset are your wheels with the spacers? im not sure what stock sti wheel offset is...50 or 55? I wish i could pull myself to run 245/40. Seems like that would work the engine a bit harder on highway cruising. Might have to settle for a 225/50 or so on 18s. Maybe a 235...
