Question since it seems a few of you are running Broadway Static in here...

Just added them to my M3 . 16k and 18k as well...

So I might not be as low as some in the rear, as I'm running 12" wheels, but I'm sitting somewhat low... My issue is that while I know the springs are stiff, I am getting A LOT of bounce from the rear, even on presumably flat surfaces. Not to mention if I hit bumps, I get almost an endless bumping.

Jose suggested that the nipple bump stop could be hitting the adjustor at the bottom of the control arm, and said to remove it. Do you guys run the springs without that adjustor in the rear? I had it at its lowest setting to help with the stiffness, but it seems the spring still has a little too much compression...

Help is appreciated. I'm gonna get under the car tonight and try to alleviate the issue...

I hear you man, "stance" is love or hate. Just depends on the person and their tastes. Thanks though

Thanks for the help, bud! Read your advice, called Jaze and I started by just removing the adjustor (nuts) and tried that as I wanted to keep the black adjustor body in there to hold the spring in place.

Took her out and the issue was gone. That little bit of release of the compression of the spring did wonders. Car felt amazingly smooth...perfect in fact, and no more continual rebound on bumps!

Loving my BS coilovers!

17s are the perfect size to get a nice meaty stretch...
