BC Racing Coilovers + CCW SP16A = Happy driver

Finally got the coil overs on. The guys at BC Racing were awsome in getting me setup.
Dropped low and looking good. Will do better pics this weekend.
My coilovers are from BC Racing NA, they are the BR series.

Took some pics behind my local Target.

yes. The only problem are the rear wheels need some adjustment. Have to get alignment to fix the camber. The plastic shield inside the wheel well rubs on the inside, due to the 11.5" back wheel. Nothing damaging, just really annoying sound.

What did you have to set the camber at after the drop?

The guys from BC Racing did the install in my garage. They eyeballed the camber, but I got it aligned this morning.

That looks killer man. Very nice. Coil overs are the way to go, in my opinion.
I see you have some mods in the suspension area as well. Can you elaborate please? THANKS!!

Just got bc racing adjustable coilovers and hotchkis front and rear sway bars. With the car being so low + sway bars, it feels awsome heading into a corner. Especially when I get a good freeway ramp.

Honestly I dont know if they came with adjustable camber plates. The guys at BC wanted to get some exp in with the camaro, so they brought the coilovers up and installed them. I know that they did adjust the camber (eyeballing it). Next day I took it over to the wheel shop to get the alignment done.

BC sells the BR Type Coilovers for $1050.00 to your door. www.bcracing-na.com

Pete over at BC said he is trying to get more into the domestic. They are pretty well known on the import scene. I am very happy with them.

Does he have any more coilovers for a Camaro? The price looks a whole lot better than the other guys. Who do I need to talk to over there?
