BC coilovers vs Megan

Which are better? I have heard that these are the same, are they? If you have them have you had any problems with either, also can I see pictures of your car on coilovers. Thanks for your help!!

Maybe I'm bias, but Megan does it for me, 32 levels of adjustments. A wide range to play with until you find your perfect mix of ride feel, responsiveness and stance.

Megan coil overs are manufactured by BC. From what I recall, the Megans are a previous BC design.

Both coilovers are built in the same factory in Taiwan along side with D2 and Megan racing coils. Though similar BC Racing uses higher quality/stronger hardware in their coils and can take a bit more beating than Megans/D2's. BC also has 2 sets of coils the BR is their cheaper coil ER is their 3 way track coil. Ive run BC Racing Coilovers on my Hyundai Genesis coupe(then switched to HSD 3Way Coils) and ran their ER coils on my track VW GTi(Which ended up being swapped out for H&R RSS Clubsports which are the best track coilover ive used on any car bar none).

Though they are great coilovers for the money I have learned to spend the little extra cash and get Koni's/H&R/Ohlins because these products have alot more R&D into their products and have more track testing than BC.

For Camaro I wouldnt use anything except for Pfadt, Pedders, or Ohlins.

Honestly, I think you will vastly prefer our coilovers over either brand.

Here are a few images...

H&R Rss clubsports. This is why I am having my Bilsteins revalved. H&R doesn't make RSS for our cars and I was told on a phone call they don't have any plans to do so . The Bilsteins with the track revalving should be similar.
