Hey guys,

Well i finally got my coil overs installed. I am running BC Racing coils now.

Still have some things to dial in.But for now i am happy how she sits.

Here are a few shots with my new D600 as well. Have a lot more to learn with this Camera but C&C is always Welcome.

Hope you enjoy.

Set up is currently.

BC racing Extreme Low coils. still have all lock rings up front and perch in the rear as well. Have to adjust a few things and get bigger spacers before i can go lower.

Wheels are Miro 111s 18 x 9.5 et 40. Front spacer is 12mm and Rear is 10. so effectively et 30 rear and 28 front.
225/40/18s all around.

Did u set it to full hard in order to keep it from rub?
With slam like this , will the rebounce be bad and affect cornering?
what's ur damper setting?

up front im set like 4 clicks down from all the way hard. rear is all the way hard. i rub in the back on dips.. if you are looking for great handling.. i wouldnt slam. i mean this does what i want it to do. I drive my car pretty hard. best thing you cna do is try out different settings.

for how low i am. the ride is awesome. of course its pretty stiff... it bounces a bit. but thats expected when im running them as stiff as i am. Id imagine if i softened them up it would be better than my h&R springs and close to stock.

If you do any more dialing in, would you mind taking pictures of the front coilover assembly and rear perch and post those here? Reason I'm asking is because I'd like to visually see where your lock rings sit with regard to the coilover assembly in the front and the rear perch vs. my non-extreme low bc coils. We're pretty close in terms of riding height so it'd be interesting. I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Looks good!
