Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

Just did mine yesterday and for those that also have them, how do you have your rear shock adjusted? I am finding the rear VERY bouncy, even with the shocks set full stiff.

That's your problem. You need to back those way down. That shock barely can be pushed in, even on the softest setting. Also make sure you haven't extended that shock any farther out than where it came from the factory.

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

Mine come in tomorrow. Doing the install next week and putting on custom control arms up front.

The advice in this thread and others will be helpful.

Re: BC CoilOvers Installed

Set the rear shocks much softer and now it rides waaaay better, thx Boychiks!

So to help us out that are a little late to the party, where does everyone have their F/R shock settings at?

I've seen front at 7 from hard, with a pretty low ride height, but what about the rest?

I'm sitting at 30 7/8" front height, 31 3/8" rear. Out of box shock setting on the front, which seems pretty good, and 11 from full soft on the rears. Still a bit bouncy in the rear so i am continuing to make small adjustments each day.

Fixed your quote. LOL

My fronts are set at 6 from firm. Not positive what the rears are at but they are below 15 and closer to soft. 31" all around give or take an 1/8th
