I have hit some pretty harsh bumps and have yet to bottom out. And I haven't hit my bumper on anything. I could go alot lower if I wanted, but I think this is a good, safe height.

I have these on my car right now too. Doing a review for them including serious track duty. Should have it at the track in jan.

The ride isnt bad and they seem to work better than expected. Handling so far isnt quite as nice as the KWs, but not bad and a better ride in the rear. BC is also releasing a inverted monotube version shortly which I will also be testing. I will let everyone know the results after the track day

I would equate these to a tein flex mono. Seem to be decent all around. For some reason you cant get as much camber on the ecentric front camber bolt with these as on the KWs.

I think the normal discount price for these is around 1k

Like I said, I am impressed so far. Possibly doing a PBOC event at sebring with them mid jan. See if i can match or beat my time on the KWs. I am however having to work with half a degree less camber.

Also, the key to these or any coilovers is setting them up right. Slapping them on and setting them by yourself can actually make your car handle worse than jsut a set of springs. A good alignment and cornerweighting is key. I just had mmine redone at cars and concepts

thats true...i know they are going to be closed all next week to add instructions etc...which is a good thing...that way people will know how to use them. i'd say they are perfect for the daily driver that wants to track the car on the weekend, as thats most of my clientel

+1 on cars and concepts. Not the cheapest place, but you know you are getting it done right. Plus they are all heavily into auto x.
