sleeves suck, get the real deal threaded shockbody. If you have to get sleeves ground control all the way, the ride is very comparable to stock, my friend has some on his 00 accord coupe.
The thing with sleeves is that they are slipped on over the strut casing so you get a lot of rattles and movement that you don't want. You can either weld on the sleeve to the casing or a quick fix is to wrap the shock casing with duct tap until the sleeves slide on with no movement.
The Ground Control comes with polyurethane sleeves that you put around the strut and the coilover sleeves goes over that. This way the coilover sleeves does not move or rattle much. It also comes with some polyurethane o-rings which makes it a better fit.
I'm not to sure about that one b18c.... I watched my mechanic install the ground control with tokicos on a 200sx and it came with NO poly sleeves that your talking about. Maybe you can buy them as an add-on.
My kit came with the polyurethane inserts... But if yours dont, definitley get them.. and like somone allready said.. save the extra cash and get the full coilover kit... it will save you in the long run...
Yea The inserts came with the kit. There's really no reason to get full coilovers if you're not into auto-x. For normal everyday driving, sleeves are just fine. But it weren't hurt to have some badass true coilovers
