Its a real PITA to install @weaselman50 but from what I see, its necessary. There is a big gap around the stud when its in the sub-frame.

yeah there's a huge gap without the spacer. drop one of the juts from the front control arm/sub frame and i bet you will buy it right away

I know what the gap looks like and I already have them laying around somewhere. I want feedback on if they do much.

They're really not that hard to install. Looking at the pics @karibah posted, I think he did a lot more work than was necessary...
As far as feedback, the car feels tighter in turn and over bumps.

There was a small discussion as to what they do in the thread from when I did the test fit/how-to.

Post #22 for feedback and from post #25 on they discussed these things

04/26/2014 – Installed OEM front struts (with B13 SE-R A/T & NX2000 M/T front springs with KYB Excel-G dampers and all OEM hardware) and re-aligned the front end back to zero toe. (88,900 miles)

Much better now those old and worn OEM units are given a rest after twenty-two years of service. The springs are different than the ones I installed. I will update when I start to play with those for a rainy day project.

EDIT: I took apart the old OEM fronts and they are indeed original and both dampers were blown. Zero rebound upon compression so I feel like I am on cloud nine now.

Well yesterday I decided to go to the junkyard and pull a clean non cracked dash out of a 94 SE R auto.



My dash was the weak link to the interiors beauty!

I conditioned the dash for a nice shine.
While all panels were out I cleaned thoroughly so there isn't a spec of dust.



Time for a suede steering wheel, shifter boot and custom shifter.
Maybe headliner too... We'll see
