Thanks for the advice,zen
My nx is the fast car...thats the one I will play with and try to squeeze a bit more out of when it comes to power/weight mods
the B13 is my comfy ,fun daily resto-mod.Its plenty fun for me as it is.I want to get it to a point where is deadnuts reliable all the time and not keep fucking with it.Its too hard to keep up with multiple modded cars..LOL
I prefer the battery in the front,and the optima was free so I plan to keep it until it gives up the ghost. Maybe I will change it up then.
I am trying to get the car finished using what I already have bought before I spend money changing things .This thing is eating my lunch already.

I have those measurements in this thread: http://www.sr20-forum.com/brakes-suspension/7028-b13-rear-suspension-re-assembly-problem-alignment-all-wrong-broadband-only-2.html#post115917
Read the text too, I think I give exact measurements in the text.

Front link #2: 15 14/32 inches 392.11250mm
Rear link #1: 15 14/32 inches 392.11250mm
Rear link #2: 15 13/32 inches 391.31875mm

You tell me 1.6mm difference between the longest and the shortest parallel link is significant when the toe adjustment bolts allow for aprox. 10mm total adjustment. Not to mention my measuring technique isn't accurate to smaller than 1mm if that. These are the same damn parts.

@DaveM it's not the exact measurements you wanted (center to center) but it should get you real close. It was outside if inner collar to outside of inner collar. If you follow me.
(The inner collars are the ones the bolts travel through.)

Yup, understood! Yea just want it to be close to stock as possible to get me to my buddys work where he does all the alignments and get it dialed in. Thanks again! Dave

Enjoyed and took advantage of the 40+ degree weather in NJ yesterday and did an oil change and coolant flush, as I was having some issues with it freezing in near 0 temps. (there was water mixed with it)
Also while I was at it, cleaned and degreased the engine bay and sprayed some WD-40 to protect from salt/water.
