BC RACING coilovers

if your looking to go low , dont buy them i emailed them and they said theres nothing they can do about it, by the way ride quality sucks as for the pictures, i thought maybe i was doing something wrong butthe strut is bottomed out in the lower collar.

You dont adjust the ride hight by lowering the spring perch, that is the pre-load. You adjust it from the bottom.

Unless I looked at something wrong.


I have had BC's for years, and they are a great company.

If you adjusted preload to lower your car, that is why your ride sucks. Readjust back to factory settings and try again.
