Sorry to clutter everything up.


I ordered mine from the states, direct from BC. I think they were something like $1000 shipped for BR within the US, and $1250 shipped for the RAM within the US. And because I ordered them from BC, they were able to give me custom spring rates.

Any one fitted these to a st165 yet?
Just a case of drilling the hub to accept the bigger 17mm bolts?

I believe I read on the BC website that all of their coilovers come with pillowball mounts :). The $1100 was quoted by a shop in Manitoba, and straight from BC I was quoted $1215.


Does anyone recommend the SWIFT spring upgrade they offer? I was quoted and extra $350 for those springs and I am pretty tempted from what I've read so far about them

Bc uk lists the er. Honestly I have a hard time pulling the trigger on bc unless I can get the er. I got verification fortune does not make a 185 set and all the others I was interested in cast as much as a whole alltrac.

I wish I could buy a used set of BC's for their bodies and put internals of my choice inside.

It wouldn't hurt to call them up and see if they have a set returned on warranty or something kicking around that they might sell you for that purpose. They seemed to be pretty flexible people when I dealt with them.

I will send them an email and inquire about his too. What do you want to put internally? another option is to DIY a coilover kit using the shock of your choice

I had asked them if they would sell the whole threaded body and they said no. I have an option to get bodies made for koni race shocks, but I was afraid their height might be too tall for my goals. Plus I liked the idea of adjustable mounting height vs spring perch. I do not know what I would put in them. It would all depend on how much room there was inside. I think anything from blistiens to koni or even a high end shock. If I am going to upgrade from my HAs I want it to be worth while and something I can run with for a while. I had not seen any diy kits that have that sort of adjustment bodies. If I could find one, I think that is the route I would go. I even looked at the Ceika stuff, but I am waiting on some feedback from people who run them.

I found there are many threaded sleeve options. I can get a strut body made and use the lower portion bc sells that matches the 185 spindle. I just have to find a threaded sleeve the same pitch as bc. I am sort of leaning towards some blistiens inserts. I want to research ceika some more but it appears I'll have to be creative to get what I want.

I got the BRs with Swift springs installed. Initial impressions, car handles much better without the sway bar end links. Should have the adjustable end links soon and will post impressions after making some adjustments...
