Once again I would like to see the data because BC has had no data to show yet. I saw these coil overs come out last year and they said the same thing buy em for a discounted price and make a review about how you like them. The answer is no I do not have all the proper equipment to test and show people results they would get from these coil overs so what good does it do me to buy them. If you don't have data to prove these things are good then that means to me you just slapped some coil overs together and called it a day. You had to have done testing on your product to get good improvements for the cars and that means you should have test results to post. If you don't post results to at least prove you tested em and got better handling then I would be just as well off buying some coil overs at autozone.

You are definitely entitled to your view. While I agree with you there needs to be data I disagree that there is none. The Blu808 Hancook drift camaro is running the ER series BCR coilovers right now.

The thing is, BCR does a ton of private label. And not just for one company. So they don't push their own coilovers much as they have no need to with other companies pushing the product for them.

We are currently building a car that will push the limits of these coilovers and the world will soon know what they are capable of.

First and foremost I am a consumer like you guys. So I try to get the most for my dollar that I can. That's why I choose BCR rather than another brand.

Ok someone pm me a price on these and I'll do my best to make a good review. The more people who try them the better I guess.

Some one I knew had these coilovers and ended up going to Pfadt coilovers. He said these suck at getting the right setting with ride quality where as Pfadt was spot on. However i know people who has Pedders Xas and loves them I personally think that these BC coilovers are still a lower option than the Pedders Xa even if they are believed to make Pedders coilovers.

I think the ride quality thing is going to be extremely subjective. Plus, as people have obviously seen Pedders has great representation on the forums and has a great image despite BC making their coilovers. That counts for something. Private labeling is pretty common from what I have seen in other aftermarket platforms. I am pretty sure the company "Whiteline" is the same as Pedders (or has similar suppliers), from some of the posts I have seen from them and their products being marketed identically. Whiteline had a great reputation in the Subaru and Mitsu communities for being entry level products for budget-oriented buyers. Thats not a cut against any of those brands, they all serve a purpose for a specific type of buyer.

Plus I don't really want to pay 2 grand for coilovers knowing how tempted I am to trade this boat for a vette.

Best way to evaluate how good or bad shocks will perform and rule out opinion is to send them to a shop equipped with a shock dyno. Shops like KAZ Technologies http://www.kaztechnologies.com/Shock-Testing-Services-142.html can dyno shocks starting at $145 and have tests that go throughout the entire range of the adjusters. It’s always good to get adjustable shocks/coilovers dyno tested to verify the adjusters settings. It’s not uncommon for a set of shocks being off by a click or to between the set. I’d be very interested in knowing how a set of BC coilovers does.

When you do the review, please post a link to your review in this thread so I don't miss it.

Thanks!

The beauty of these coilovers is that they ARE rebuildable. SO when the time comes that you need to replace them, you can send them in and have them rebuilt for far less than replacing.
What is involved in the rebuilding process? Can you PM me your price on a set for a '10 SS please?

I will be having these installed later this week by Heintz Racing and I will also do a review this weekend or early next week.

Let's be honest. MOST people in today's economy are looking for the best performing product for the least amount of money. We are just like you guys. We look for the same thing! That's why we have chosen to offer BCR coilovers and Whiteline. Both of these products have no compromise in the performance department but come in way lower on the spend o meter!

Are there high end product out there? SURE! Pfadt comes to mind as a perfect example. Aaron and the engineers at Pfadt KNOW what they are doing when it comes to pure performance! That also comes at a price.

The simple fact is not everyone needs a 5,000 dollar suspension package on their car. Not everyone needs our super street 1.5 package either. Lucky for ALL of us there is a HUGE range of product available to suite each person's WANTS and NEEDS.

We believe that BCR in combination with Whiteline, that the performance offered will meet and exceed the majority of Camaro buyers expectations!

In fact I believe in this so much I will offer a money back guarantee on ANY BCR coilover bought from us!

If you are unhappy with the product, all you have to do is uninstall and ship it back to us for a FULL refund!

Had these installed with the above settings by Heintz Racing last week. Your recommended settings and results were spot-on!!

Hey Mike, sorry if I wasn't clear. The fact that BC exists to serve a market that is looking for less expensive entry-level parts, is awesome. Everyone needs options. Just saying that its funny how a company like Pedders can have a great rep on the boards from what I can see, when they sell the same coilovers as BC, who have a "negative" rep as making cheap parts. Buying the BCs is a no brainer if thats your budget. But why would anyone pay so much more for the same product? I think BC should get a better rep for offering the same product at a lower price. Hell, maybe I should try them out!

BUt it looks to me the that other companies making suspension products for the new Camaro make their own designs, which is sweet. Pfadt and KW mainly from what I can see. Pretty sure Eibach too. Can you PM me with a price on these BCs?
