Default Pics with new suspension installed

I put my BC Coilovers on this weekend. I haven't adjusted the height on them yet. Im letting them settle for a couple days before ajustment. So far I am pretty impressed with the ride.

Update: 3/1/2010: I am still very happy with the ride. So much so that I am wondering if one of the KYB's that came off the front was blown. It only had 20K on it but the ride quality has been significantly improved.

FYI: I picked my BC Coilovers up from Circuit Motorsports. Good price and fast shipping. Arrived in approximately 2 weeks.

Nice drop! I haven't heard too much feedback with BC coilovers as oppose to Megans or Stance. Update us with more pics and your thoughts on them. Did you have Tanabe springs on there before?

Yes, You adjust them with the lower adjustment that threads into the shock base to raise and lower so it doesn't impact the spring or shock travel. You can pick them up for around $1k.

Yes, I had the KYB GR2 and Tanabe NF210 combo. The BC's are a better ride. The KYB's felt very underdampend especially in the front. Just felt really soft which made which made you all the bumps in the road at low speed.

I'm going to go a little lower in the front and maybe a little higher in the rear. Just a 1/4 inch or so.
