Re: K Sport Coil Overs final review

I have the New fronts from BC coming in Saturday for more testing.
We could have released the BC Racing coilovers 3-4 months ago but we decided it would be better if we did a lot of driving and testing so we do not end up like K-Sport. We are still testing but getting real close. We should have a great not just good product when they are released now isn't that what we all want?

I'm glad to hear you are getting closer. Keep up the good work.

Re: K Sport Coil Overs final review

Yes we are sorry for the wait.
I've been working on this for almost a year and yea we are taking just as long as the K-Sports but we don't have anyone's money and they will be built right!!!! A lot was done for these it's not like we can take the OE stuff and copy them like k-Sport did that's the problem with them too many variations. I will not tell what the problem is as far a bottoming out it's actually quite complicated and I'll let someone else figure it out we did not do all of this for a free handout so K-Sport or anyone else can make the adjustments.

I agree and I don't want to know what the fix is I just want it to be fixed.

Waiting definitely is something that we Jeep owners must go through to get anything made. I have come to accept this.

Agree with you and you are right, plus business wise that wouldn't be smart! You put in the hours and the effort so you should reap the rewards! Glad to see they're close, any idea on price range, sorry if its been mentioned, probably missed a bunch of info on this haha. Im thinking for me, this may be the way to go with some of those Stage 6 adj. shocks out back!

Re: K Sport Coil Overs final review

999.00 Shipped.
The rears shocks are already adjustable in the kit.

The rears are on the right you can see the dial on the top right one it's silver and the close up of the dial on the fronts they have a black dial.

Re: K Sport Coil Overs final review

No offense....but bottoming out issues aren't rocket science. There aren't that many factors in play that are allowing it bottom out.....but I'm sure my last 5yrs as a technical consultant for a company who specializes in lifted suspensions helps me in shock and coilover setup

Re: K Sport Coil Overs final review

Haa I guess I see your point and I knew that comment was coming LMAO!!! But their was something that was over looked by K Sport and us for what we are trying to accomplish fairly simple but defiantly easy to over look. I'll school your pea sized technical consultant brain next time you call me.

Re: K Sport Coil Overs final review

NICE So where looking at a 990$ range seems fair I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but will rolling the fenders be necessary if you have it on the lowest setting?

Re: K Sport Coil Overs final review

I don't think rolling fenders will be an issue their are other things that will keep you from going that low.
