Bro i'm telling you once you play around with the damper,air & the coilover itself & get it exactly where you want it your golden.

well i wasn't sell you something haha. but the photographers love to ride in the back seat on my car doing rolling shots on cruises. remember i said i have no ride height controller? so imagine my ride height but rides like stock! if i ride on a car with controller only, the same ride height will probably be somewhere at 8-9, i am sure you know how that rides like...hondas with cut springs lol.

I've seen a couple guys drill a holle where your control arm is hitting. I have the same problem on my UCF20. I might drill a hole to give it a little more room and then get a metal cap welded on it to seal it up.

mods should be done so functionality is combined with safety as well as making ur car look good, if one thing is compromised then maybe its time to rethink the way u have ur car set up.i take my car on long trips and the last thing i need is something going wrong because i have done something to my car that will make it unsafe or wear things out such as tires,front end parts,wheel studs breaking...etc,etc. i see people on here that have their cars dumped so low that the tires butterfly out,although it may or may not be a "better" look it tends to put unnecessary wear on ur car

That's a negative brO. I'm on the BC Racing. I only touch the body drop which is not even maxed out yet. Didn't have to touch the adjustable perches. Rides like a champ...

Wish I could roll lower, but this UL suspension drops an inch on the freeway...can't risk it with these offsets and lack of aftermarket camber!

Here is my ride height no real issues at all unless there is a big dip in the road but I'm on air so I can raise up and then lower back down on the fly!
