It is hard for me to compare since I have 20" rims and hen I got my car less than a week later I went to H&R springs/sock shocks....it a 10000% better than that. I can tell you with 20" rims with 245/35/20 and 285/25/20 tires in 20 degree weather it is pretty damn smooth...when it is 50 degree out it like silk.

Getting ready to re-shoot my calipers and rotor hubs. You can find it in the high temp engine paints at the auto parts stores in Chevy Red. Looks good with the Montego Blue. I also have a set of BMW 197's that I'm painting White. Should look sick with a new set of DRs for the track. You need to paint the inner hub on your rotor also.

s4nye he said he went with the standard 7kg & 11kg

Also OP, or anyone, did the BC coils come with the adjustable rear links? Or did you buy those separate? Shown in the 8th picture down. Are those necessary?

Great review...BC have great price ranges and good quality. but I think an important question when posting reviews on coilovers is,
What type of experience the op has with other cpoilovers and suspension in general.
are you comparing with stock shocks? or have you had other coilovers to compare the quality and handling with? also if you had experience with hi end coilovers which is most important for comparison, its important to post.
ads more value to the review.
great pics and nice stance btw!

good point, I have had coilovers on other cars...mine where compared to spring/strut combo and it was worlds better, I drive my buddies car a lot with ST coilovers and they are not bad but not as planted as mine...BUT I have a Lot more upgrades then he does...hard to compare.

^^ Good to hear. I'm debating between ST and BC. but the BC coilovers look like they are a better quality and have a lot more adjustability.

Can I ask, how much room left do you have as far as lowering? I believe you said these are the standard, not extreme drop
