Coil over questions

Hi guys. I'm looking for a setup that allows me to adjust ride height as well as stiffness. I had a QA1 setup on my 4th gen firebird. I'm looking to be able to make it soft for weekend drag racing then try and get it back to safe on the road driving. This is for my 15 SS. Or is coilovers not the answer with these? Learning the platform lol. Any suggestions? Thanks Ryan

+1 to the BR adjustable coil over, might want to check out the extensions for the rear.
Less the 6 years

I've seen a vendor ad on here and the extensions are included.

Do you do any road racing or autocross?
i ask because alot of people recommend these but change the springs on them. Just curious on your thought of them




Sorry to hijack the thread, I have heard alot of recommendations on the BC racing coilovers. I am currently running on sway bars and hotchkiss springs, i've done drag, autocross and road racing, and if you get anything i highly recommend starting with the rear end bushings, subframe and arms. I had alot of wheel hop on stock bushings when warming up the tires and launching, and that helped. The springs did too but thats more important IMO

If you can turn, you are going too slow.
