Do the b's corner very well?
They're not too bad in the corners. I mean, they're lowering springs, so they're better than stock. And with a decent wheel and tire combo (I eventually used 17" Pony Rs as my street wheels) they corner pretty decent.

I watched this thread and I chose to get the C Springs for better handling. I do not track my car (Drag or road course) so I wanted the better spring for street handling and I think the C spring will serve my purposes well. I should get mine installed (along with rear control arms and CC plates) within a month or so and I'll update with my impressions. Good luck with your setup, OP!

Make sure you upgrade the shocks and struts, because those springs are stiff. Strange 10-ways would work nicely.

Well, I bought new struts and shocks; however, they are the KYB GR-2 (Excel G)...the budget did not allow for the more expensive struts. If I find that the ride is just too harsh or if my struts/shocks do end up wearing out quickly (I would hope to get at least 25-30k miles out of them) I'll go with better ones. The budget had to guide my decisions, unfortunately. I was able to buy those spherical axle bushings and Shark CC Plates. Had I bought the more expensive sturs, I would have had to buy either the bushings or the plates. I felt both were necessary (I'm most likely wrong...)...I had to sacrifice somewhere... Always appreciate your feedback and expertise in this area!

No problem! I'm sure you'll like your new setup.
