Re: Suspension question/Spring Rates, etc.

Well message EBPludeSH and see what he thinks of them after 4 years. The concern is not with the initial ride quality but the longevity of the BC setup, although I hear they have gotten better in recent years. In the end the BC is a budget coilover, why bother when you can have a quality and proven setup for the same (near enough) price. You'll notice he has custom spring rates too, this would probably make the ride a bit more tolerable.

It depends how stiff you make it too. If you want to lift wheels then I suspect your spine will be the first thing to go. Your bushes will start to deteriorate faster and you'll start to notice a lot more creaks and groans as the chassis starts to loosen up, but if you're making it that stiff then you probably won't want to drive it very far anyway so it balances out. If you want a more street based setup then there shouldn't be that much extra wear and tear assuming everything is still in reasonable condition.
