BC Racing Coilover, how bad is it???

Seeing people on here kept selling their used 2-3 months/low miles BC Racing coilover weekly and went for some other coilover setup, now was it because of a bad ride quality? Can you share your (bad or somewhat bad) experience on BCR coilover?

I have Bilstein PSS10 but looking to buy BCR as a long term spare setup while sending Bilstein for service maintenance.

Thanks,
J-

Depending on your needs, BC Racing coilovers aren't bad...just maybe misleading. Maybe they assumed 'Racing' being equivalent to performance? They are a good cheap solution for someone wanting an adjustable suspension or 'stance' their car on a budget. If you spirit drive here and there, you'll be fine. If you track or desire superior handling, you'll be better off with a different system.

Since you're looking for a temp solution while you get your bilstein serviced, you'll be fine. Thought about doing the same but said bump it. If you have a garage and two sets of jack stands, you can leave the car up until they come back. You'll save a good amount of time when you reinstall them.
