i am looking for a pair of fender lights for a b12, the ones that does be on top the fender close to the bonnet.


the part # for the light is
26730 ---->>>>26730-75A00 (right hand)
26735----->>>>26735-75A00 (left hand)

and the cost - not including shipping from japan is roughly $25 usd -each - very good if u ask me.

if you want to rebuild it - you'll need two green LEDS two 1k ohm resistors....heat shrink tubing....
bread board (circuit board) and a tube of small silicone and 12 gauge wire....

what do you refer to as "decent"...???
how much are you willing to spend ???
what key features you looking for ???

i'd recommend you go read up about coil overs see how they operate and then come back

brands to look at are tein cusco megan racing

try to stay away from those "universal types"

every car has a different weight - just cause a coil spring and shock absorber "fits" and "bolts up" that doesnt necessarily mean it can "work"

factor in the vehicle weight from car to car and you can see why certain brands of universal coilvers work flawlessly but on a different car that same unit handles like garbage

no disrespect eah buddy and i dont want to sound like a "know it all",
but the words coilovers and daily driver do not go hand in hand.

if coilovers worked perfectly for daily drivers you'd see alot more cars having them.

the difference in coil overs as opposed to normal shock and spring is a trade off.

you trade comfort and durability of the normal spring and shock for performance of the coil over - yes the coil over can be rebuilt numerous times with a new cartridge. but at what cost???

you trade ride height of the normal spring and shock for better aerodynamics of the coil over
the downside of lowering too low is that you may get stuck going over a normal height hump...and you have to go over at a 45 degree almost all times.

in addition the bess condition of our roads here in trinidad is counter productive to driving - have you driven on the highway...utter rubbish the road surface is....

additionally coilovers have to be adjusted and balanced properly before use... is not like if you can just pull up to a drag strip come out and turn a few turns on a lock nut and drop the car a few inches - some cheaper brands actually make it easier for the user to do exactly this - but remember you get what you pay for - cheaper doesnt necessarily equate better.

also suspension and braking go hand in hand.
what suspension upgrades have you done..any strut tower bar or sway bar installed?? any poly bushing..???
what brake upgrades have you done??

i know it sounds simple an easy as buy coilover and put it on the car - but without thinking it through you'll be wasting money.


i'd recommend you go lowering springs and sport shocks.... tein isnt the ONLY brand of lowering spring available.... theres megan racing, RSR, eibach, H&R, apexi

sport springs and sport shocks truly give the best of both worlds...comfort and sporty look and feel..if you want something more high performance oriented.....then feel free to go with the coilovers of your choice.

i may not be "a boy who it worked for" but i did have a b12 at one time and i know a thing or two.

Ok. I get what was said. Thanks for the info. Currently I have H&R springs and Monroe shocks for the B12. It's a little too low at the back so Id like some adjustment..... That's how I was leaning towards the coilover setup....

you really dont know what you have.... H&R is one of the top brands of lowering springs...right up there with eibach. the manufacturer - H&R actually recommends the use of a sport shock....with their spring.

not all lowering springs are the same they all have different lowering values- some lower as little as 1 inch- some lower as much as 1.8 inches....

some springs are linear some are non linear.....

based on the spring the shock will work differently.

normal shocks are a specific length and twin tube
sport shocks are shorter length and mono tube.

sport shocks are KYB AGx koni Bilstein and munroe.

you said you have munroe shocks- theres the sport munroe shocks called munroe GT.
however they are designed to work best with a brand of springs called king springs

link >>>> http://www.monroe.com.au/products/gt-sport.html

6. Can you mix and match springs and shocks?

The GT Sport product can be used with other springs that are comparable to King Springs.
However, for optimum performance and ride height, Monroe recommends King Springs.

in case u didnt know munroe is an australian brand and so is king springs...

if you dont like the height of the car try another combination of lowering spring and shock.

Yo fellas. Looking for some advice. Getting a car with a qg15 engine and b12 gearbox setup. The former owner of the car started it for me and said it was driving, but as guessed the axles he used (b12) were too short on one end. I heard someone say in de forum that the seals can be changed to a look for different axles.
1) Is that possible
2) A quick run down of the procedure
3) should I change over as well to p11 hub (with shock&spring as well as I may do)
