I live in a snow belt state so ST was ruled out, it was between KW V1, BC, and FA. First choice was FA but the supplier took too long with my order so I choose BC instead with another supplier. I do not like the fact that KW does not have preload adjustment and basically will reduce spring travel every time you go lower and will likely provide a shitty ride from it. There's also no camber plates and you can't adjust the dampers but I already kind of explained this in my previous posts. But for those who just want a mild drop without messing with dampers then KW or ST is the way to get. I've had experience with coilovers in the past and prefer to fine tune the settings to my liking on my car that I drive everyday.My .02 cents. (BC has been around since 2006 btw)

Been around in the US maybe, but IIRC they have been making shocks since the late 90's. FA is equally as shitty, just with fancier flare.

And yeah if you go too low the ride will be shitty. I have Dinan Camber plates they work great and were like $130.00 on Amazon.
