Some buddy club **** that apparently are fairly new. They are being pushed on RoadsterDrift. I couldn't push myself to fork out 1600 for the Tein's with the spring rates I wanted and these let me pick the springs. They got pretty sick reviews from the Evo/DSM/and 350 community so I figured I'd try em.

Features:
- 46mm internals inside of 53mm shocks
- 1 year manufacturer's warranty
- 30-way adjustable dampers
- fixed cup design
- pillow ball upper-mounts w/ camber plates (most vehicle models)

One more suspension company producing coilovers with absolutely no research put into them. 12/10?

Probably why he chose 10/8, what's that like 560 / 445 lb/in... might be a good time to upgrade to a tubular front bar and no rear. In the least I suggest no rear bar.


yeah brad these are BC Racing Coilovers, not buddy club.

anyways, they still look nice. I'm sure they'll beat your konis and 195/95 lb/in Apexi springs.
