BMR non adjustable rear control arms question

currently am lowered on a bmr split drop if I can remember correctly 1.5” front and 1” in the rear. Looking at adding coil overs bc my car is way too low for my liking since I added a front splitter. Looking at getting afe adjustable coils and still want to keep that raked looked just not as low in the front. So if I say drop the back less than an inch maybe .5 would the non adjustable bmr lowers still work??

The adjustability would only be necessary if you're lower so much that you can't achieve proper alignment specs. If you're going closer to stock height the non-adjustable arms will be fine. I'm lowered over an inch in the rear (1.25" or so) and am running the factory LCA's with -0.5° camber - if I want more I have JPSS's eccentric bolts to allow for more adjustment.

so you should be OK - you might need a Camber Bolt kit

Good to hear does your lower control arms match with just about any aftermarket coilover? Like the afe featherlights

There are some coilovers ( which have a Reserve canister) that they do not fit

Yes. Pedders main culprit but may have changed like bc racing and can be remote mounted as they have a long fluid line.
Do Research for sure

Not sure what the deuce a concentric integrated remote canister is, but judging by the picture of those coilovers you'll be fine. I think BMR is referring to such coilovers as these: https://store.jdpmotorsports.com/pro...table-042430-d, where there is a separate oil canister/reservoir which allows for greater travel, reducing chances of bottoming out.
