I just got off the phone with BC. Their phone techs are better than their email techs.
So they will build me an inverted ER. It would be 2,500 though. They can also build a custom 3 way adjustable for 2,800 with a remote reservoir. The ER is progressive, and the 3 way they said can be tuned to be digressive.

That sounds like pretty good pricing all things considered.

It may be more than I want to spend though. I am looking at insert options for custom strut housings. I can buy BC lower mounts for $50 each, then I just need to find a slip on thread that can be used with them on the housings. I could then go with blisteins or something if I choose.

I got a reply, each shock is valved to the spring rate. So if you change the spring rate they will revalve the shock accordingly 2-3 week build time. If anyone wants a quote send me a PM

Actually I think I might have gotten their custom Ram price wrong. Now I can't remember what they told me. I am just not sure if going to another linear system is going to be right for me. Klue, if you want to see what they would quote you for the ram setup, let me know.

Interesting.
So it has high & low speed compression adjusters?

Or when they say "tuned", do they mean adjusting shim stacks?

From the way he described it, it sounded as if he was saying a low and high speed adjuster.

The custom RM. Two way adjustable with remote external canister and swift springs. It would essentially be a inverted ER. Inverting it would be due to fear of space for the cartridge so it would be remote.

I have been crunching numbers, and for me to do the Koni race with custom housings or bilsteins its going to be over 2k anyhow.

The only low buck high performance thing I could do is get 4 evo MR struts and pay to get two valved for the rear and add custom mounts. I'll still need to get rear top hats. Jeesh. This shit is getting expensive.

Good struts are not cheap :)

When you try to build a good set, you start to realise how generic and average quality the ~$1000 coilover sets must really be.
And also why top of the line struts are so damn expensive.

Good shocks are definitely expensive.

If you just want the lower threaded parts, CX Racing makes some cheap coilovers that have the threaded lowers. It might be worth seeing if they'll sell the parts you need separately, worst case they're only $700 for the set so you could take what you want from them and sell the other parts as spares http://www.cxracing.com/mm5/merchant.mv ... _Code=COVR

On the cxracing ones that bottom nut adjusts pressure too?
I don't know much about coilovers, sorry.
