Re: BC Racing BR series coilovers install

I say just lower it. And let us know how it rides, because I'm kinda getting tired of my JIC magic setup, it's valved too hard and sprung too soft, if that makes any sense.

BC Racing rides awesome the best upgrade what I have!

I have SPC/Eibach camber adjustable upper ball joints in every corner with those coilovers

Re: BC Racing BR series coilovers install

After coilovers, I would do sways.


Strut bars are almost all for show. Sways have muchhhhhhh more of an affect on handling than strut bars.

Re: BC Racing BR series coilovers install

Re: BC Racing BR series coilovers install

definitely sway bars. or at least a rear. don't order anything from ESP if you need/want it within the next 2 months. I got quoted 5-8 weeks for a front upper strut bar (which is still attrocious for 3 pieces of steel welded together) and I ended receiving it after 15 weeks. that's right; almost 4 months

read my text again, man. carefully
I want to know do they make your car handle better considering just street driving!

I dont care what you need and what you got, its not all about you :)

but youre right about one thing: I always mix sway and traction bars :P
