There are no other options?

You don't have to run the extenders through the carpet. We have found it's easier to drill a 2" hole and use a desk grommet. This way you can access the adjusters by pulling up the carpet on each side when you need to adjust them. Otherwise the carpet sits flush and you'd never know you had coilovers.

I just looked into my crystal ball and I see coilovers in your future!

I just installed the same set. What did you guys do with the dampners in the trunk? did you just leave them dangling there, or did you do something to secure them down. I used a piece of velcro to keep them from bouncing. just curious.

We don't use the extenders at all. We drill a 2" hole big enough for your fingers to get to the adjust under the carpet. Simply lift the carpet, make the adjustment and go.

Can you later use these coilovers for an air suspension?

I need to revisit the front passenger side. When first installing, I managed to get the strut bolt off without an impact gun. However I don't think that is going to happen, unless someone has an idea for me to try.

Anyway what is the cheapest aircompressor and impact gun I can get to achieve this. I see so many options at harbor freight.

I have a battery powered impact gun that can do about 95% of the work load that I need it for. Might be an option and yes it worked for my front strut disassembly.

good luck

If I remember correctly, there is a place for an allen key in the top of the shaft to hold it from turning. Don't know if that will give you enough leverage to get the nut removed or not.

I would like to make a comment on the op, even though I know it is quite old. Just because a company uses a second party to make their products for them, and they also make their own labeled products, doesn't mean they are made to the same specs. Proof is the rear coilover adjuster. The BC one comes straight up and requires a hole in the trunk. The Pedders one comes out the side and is adjusted from under the car. The front coilover clevis mount bracket on the Pedders is wider than the stock one, which is one of the changes that allowed them to run 305s up front. I don't know if the BC one is the same as stock or a different dimension. I have seen a documentary about automotive batteries that said this. Multiple companies sent their own specs to one manufacturer who produced the batteries to those specs. I am willing to bet that is what happens at BC. They produce the coilovers, but to the specs provided by the companies.

Thanks...my brother gave me the same advice a little while ago.

Will 200lbs of torque and 3000rpm do the job?

Or 350lbs of torque and up to 2100 rpm?

There are the two options I found between homedepot and lowes.

12/f 6/r from hard or soft?

Sorry if that's a dumb question, but I've read contradicting information.

Always gone from soft and I notice the difference and it lines up with the numbers I entered.

Can anyone explain how I know what setting my dampeners are on and how I know if I'm going from an 8 to say a 12. Are there clicks as you turn to count?

On the top of the knob will be some letters and arrows. S to the left H to the right. Turn each knob all the way to the left to zero it out. The turn back to the right. Each click is one level. You have to COUNT the clicks. I would suggest you start out at 12 front, and 9 rear.

Yes, either with replacement part from BC, or there is a shop that does them for 75 per corner. Don't remember the name off hand.

Thanks, got it figured out very easily!

What have people done to remedy occasional popping noises? Also I am only lowered about 1.2" and dont seem to have much space between the top of the tire and the wheel well to go lower. Nor does it seem on th coilover body that I have much space left for lowering?

You should not have any poping noises. Check your preload....

My preloads are set to 4mm on the front and i am pretty much maxed out on the height adjustment. It seems like I should be able to have more adjustment to go lower? Any advice?
