Like how BC racing and other brands coilovers that looks like BC brand are accurately built unlike the Eibachs. But seems to me like the springs are too bouncy with these sets, I would personally upgrade to stiffer springs for track use.

I love mine. Car rides and handles awesome. I paid for a lifetime alignment at my local tire shop and they will re-align for me for free if I change ride height or if I'm going to the track and want some more camber dialed in. I've played with different ride heights and I'm happy with where it is at now which is about 1.5" lower than stock. I love the stance it has.

I added a supercharger recently and with my 4.10 gears I was having traction issues because I was over powering the rear tires so much. I played with the adjustments, soften up the rear to about 10 and the fronts to about 14. The car immediately hooked better due to better weight transfer.

These coilovers are awesome for the money.

Is there a way to keep the rear dampening cable outside the vehicle so I dont have to put it in the trunk? My car is full of stereo equipment and wouldnt be the best idea.

Clearance is an issue for me. I have mine set for stock height, knowing over time it will settle about .5 inch.

Got them in today, it took a little longer than I thought so I didn't get the chance to play with the ride height and get it perfectly level. So that'll be a project in the next few days. I did have a few questions, maybe you can help with.

1. I have a 2012 so on the front I had the white foam peice that cannot be reused, but I saw you had one. But the assembly of the top looked like you had another peice, did you?

2. How easy is it to adjust the height while the coilover is on the car?

3. The rears seem to make a noise when I hit larger jumps, yet I know everything is tight, do you have a problem with this?

Once I find a good ride height I will get it aligned and time everything so maybe that's some of the noise, I'm not quite sure.

Damn! I'd be all over these in a second if I didn't have to cut a hole in my trunk floor.

You dont have to but it makes it easier to adjust ride settings.
