Re: BC Racing coilovers are almost here!!

Good news!!!
No issues with the changes we made and they have been tested on some pretty wicked roads at all speeds. After living in Florida for so many years I can't even believe how bad the roads actually are up north.


Measurements are from the center of hub to the center of fender.

BC Ride Hight
Front 17
Rear 17.5

Now the measurement from the center of wheel well to the ground.

Front 30.5
Rear 31.25

We are waiting to get more miles on them to see how they settle out before we go lower and give the finial measurements.
So far the ride is firm no sloppiness and much better control feels like a real sports car. As soon as they settle I will get another measurement and go a bit lower to see how low we can actually get without hitting anything. I'm also playing with the dampening to see what feels best. As of right now they are set on 0 and no issues bottoming out front or rear!!!

Re: BC Racing coilovers are almost here!!

Chad If I remember correctly you where at 31.25 front and rear with the K-Sports and bottoming out front and rear correct?

Does anyone have B-Woody or any other MFG's spring measurements from ground to center of wheel well?

No, just the fronts are the issue. They actually got the rears right.

That's right now I remember Thanks so it looks like we are .5 lower in the front and the same in the rear with no issues. I took it on some of the worst roads around today at all kinds of speeds hit a few pot holes I actually stood up they where so big I thought it was going to be rib breaking but to my surprise nothing at all. The final set we will try to get another inch out of the rear possibly a half inch max we at least want the option their for those who want to do shows.
