I have B+G springs on my 1996 NG900. They are very low in back and some of the coils actually touched. After the first picture was taken I added some rubber spaces to the rear springs which brought up the ride height a little.

They handle awesome, that being said they ride well for as low as they sit and as well as they handle in relation to other vehicles with similar setups. I have the koni's as well.

I'm curious about this as well. Suspension components are what I need to finish next before the next stages come, and the Konis are pretty expensive for me, for all four sides. What's the drop on the B&G's vs the Konis?

How are the spacers holding up? How long have you been running them?

35mm offset will be tricky.
You'll probably end up having some rubbing, specially if you have a 5-door car, on a coupé you just might make it.
Personally I would look for a wheel with the offset around 40 to be on the safe side.
