Cant help but notice, you swapped coilovers for coilovers... were the 1st ones bad somehow,or just not low enough?

He bottomed out a lot.....and he wasn't even as low as my Eibachs were. He wanted a better ride and no bottoming. He does road course racing and bottomed even on straight aways on one track.

As for height, he doesn't care about being low.


Side note, on his old coilovers we found the lower mounting bracket that secures the coilover to the fork was bent on both sides since it wasn't welded at the top of the bracket.
For comparison, both the stock Bilsteins and the BC Coilovers are welded to prevent that from happening.

BiTurboS4 is on a distinguished road
I agree. Plan to get some grey reps for our white jeep.

What size adapters are you guys running? I can only find the viper reps 5x115

Did you measure to see how much your rear axle was shifted with the stock bar?
I haven't, and don't intend on buying the bar....just was curious.

I'm tempted to drop it even more.....closer to 30" all the way around, just need to play around with the fronts more.

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

I havent measerd how much the Axle has shifted but their is something defentaly stoping from it coming down some more Ill make sure to measure and to measure after the new bar goes in....The Front is super slammed it settles down just a heads up if you drive alot like i do i just want the rear to be leveld out as the front....

You should def lower it more it look sweet

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

You must have some smooth roads by you. NYC streets would eat mine alive if I went that low.
