BC Racing BR Series Coilovers

Any other convertibles out there running these coilovers?

Coil overs

Let me know if you learn anything. Those look like a nice setup for the price and I am considering coil overs as well.

How low are your drop springs now? I'm curious as to the ride quality of these coilovers. I have a set of LG's that I have not installed yet. Great looking vert and nice wheels.

I have them on my vert. I also ran a set on my previous car, SRT8. I'm not a racer, but couldn't be happier with the performance. Quality is top notch and pretty easy to adjust the ride height and really easy to adjust the dampening.

I had Eibach lowering springs initially then went with the BC Racing coilovers for more adjustability and better ride. The ride quality and adjustability of the BC coilovers is awesome, especially for the price.
The only issue I have with them is the clicking noise the rears make going over small bumps at slow speeds, especially when the top is up. Sounds like something is loose which I know is not the case. BC Racing sent me replacement cartridges for the rears and I still heard the clicking noise.

I currently have the Eibach lowering springs with the stock shocks installed in the rear and there is absolutely no noise. Was only going to reinstall the factory shocks as a test, but seeing how nice and quiet the ride is, I may go with coilovers up front and lowering springs in the rear for a while.

Just curious if any other verts with these coilovers hear this clicking noise.

Funny you should mention the clicking. I did my exhaust and coilovers at the same time. Re-adjusted the exhaust because I thought that was the problem. Still not sure if the occsional noise I here is still the exhaust hitting something of if its the coilover. Note to self: Don't do multiple mods at once, makes it hard to tell what the culprit is.
