BC BR coilover recommend?

Still deciding on the most bang for the buck! BCs are monotube, large piston diameters, optimum spring rates?(8K/10K). But what about realibility and adjust access as well as daily driving. Use will be DD and serious autocross. PFADT look good but the cost is over 2X!

BC's are great if you want to stay under a budget. Will they compare to some of the companies that make coilovers that cost $2000+, no, but it will give it a run for it's money, that's for sure. BC's have a good range of adjustment, so you can adjust it to a softer setting for daily driving, so that you don't feel like you're driving a race car all the time.

For the money, it wont get much better, I can guarantee you that. If you have any questions on it, let me know! I'll be happy to help out

I have the ER's and beat on them on a road course all the time with no issues. Only thing I don't like is the lack of provision for the speed sensor cable but whatever; they're great for the money, tunable, and built very well.

Only thing I heard about br's was the bound rebound map isnt great and that makes tuning hard to do.

For the money BC makes a good coil over but you are looking at another level with the Pfadt coil overs.
