BC Coilovers?

Postby Zalek250 » Sun May 06, 2018 4:30 pm

Cruising around the interwebs, stumbled upon some BC coilovers.
I used to search function on the forum but couldn't find anyone talking about these.
Will these require the perch be cut off? They are being sold as a direct bolt on.

I have BCs on mine and no modification was necessary.

I have BC coilovers also. Easy install. One thing I wish I did when I bought them was go for the swift spring upgrade. I ended up buying them later.

They just feel a lot better.

Do these handle well? I'm usually a coilover snob and buy high dollars stuff, but with needing new struts and having to potentially ship from overseas, these are becoming a good option.

They are made well but if there ever is a need to repair/PM, there is a facility here in the states so no need for shipping to China or wherever else.

I daily mine with the adjustments set midway and I like it, no complaints. .

Hmmmmm.

I'm having a real hard time finding anyone who will ship pressurized struts overseas (UK->US, JP->US) so I'm kind of stuck at least on the rear strut replacement. By the time I total up new struts, mounts, rubber isolators ....etc. I'm almost at BC's.

I might order a set and try them out.

I found the stock springs too bouncy matter what settings I had it on. But it may also be that I live in the Northeast with potholes the size of of a kiddy pool.

Swift springs are a bit more progressive it seems. And playing with the preload I've got decent handling and ride comfort.

I'm also considering some poly isolators to help with the harsher roads.

On a side note. I bought my BC coilovers through Amazon and used my Discover card points that I had saved up. I think I saved around $200.

I thought it was just me, glad to know that the bounce is normal. I've played with the preload not much change

I've got them in my car, I like them but in hindsight I should've just gone with BR rather than RM.
