We've done the fronts before, but haven't tested lengths and rates for the rear. We'll look into it.

The standard valving is reeeally soft on the standard B14 kit, so depending on what you expect out of your linear conversion kit, our revalved GTWORX kit may just work a lot better for you.

(I realize I have some PMs to answer...making my way through them slowly).

B14's are ~$1k. Hinted at both stock top hats and aftermarket adjustable ones.

Little of an old bump, but I didn't feel as if this needed a new thread.

Looking into going linear for my B14's, sticking with 60MM Swift springs in 5k/6k or 6k/6k. Also using DIF tophats (1" extended)

The length of spring is where I'm at a loss. I have seen a few 6" with tender/helper springs in the front. Also have seen 7". Is it advisable to run tender/helper springs regardless? Do the rears need the same length or should I use longer?

EDIT: Looks like I missed a page on here. Questions answered.
