ST tend to rust, BC BR are $995.00 (32 way adjustments). They are honestly a great coilover for the price point.

You hit the nail on the button I have leaned alot of people over to BCs and I have not had any complaints from anyone if th since they installed them.

I can definitely feel the difference when using the 32 way adjustments from softer to harder. I woul maybe look into it cause if you really can't feel the difference between hardest to softest there's something wrong

For people who goes through snow and rain, sure. Or else prove me wrong.

I didn't ride it with much adjustment but I shouldn't need to just to feel the difference. I have Koni 8611 in my race cars and I can feel the changes little by little.

You guys can ride BC all you want.

You should definitely feel the difference and changes. Maybe the koni are more sensitive but if you can't feel the change maybe you just have bad unit. But sounds like you won't be happy at all with BC cause your mind is set on it.

Haters gonna hate though

He leaned me towards buying a set of BC Racing coilovers, and after analyzing them in person and the face they come with front camber plates, I can say that the build quality looks very good and the price with camber plates iced the cake. They can also be rebuilt for $95 per strut, which is very reasonable. I would recommend buy a used set of coilovers, if you can find a good price on KW coilovers used go for those 100%, but BC Coilovers should be 2nd on your list for a "Bang for the buck" coilover.
