Installation was for the most part straight forwards. The fronts were super easy. Installation of the rears themselves are super easy but the preparation before is a PITA. You must remove the rear seats to get access to the top bolts. Time consuming but relatively easy and straight forward.

Unfortunately I did not make a DIY since we started the install at 10pm last night. I can help answer any questions regarding installation.


Here is before




After






will try to get some measurements today. Now time for wheels

I'm trying to save for wheels and coilovers at the same time. If I keep seeing nice drops, I'll have to pull the trigger on the coilovers before the wheels.

you have to take out the back seats for install :confused: ? did anyone manage to do it without taking it out? I'm really itching to pick this up as well... though friends are convincing me to build towards the VIP look :cool: so if i decide on that i might toss in the cash for some bags ;)

You have to take odd the seats to get access to the three bolts that hold the rear suspension in place. Not hard just time conauming.

I had air ride on my previous car and it feels nice to be on coils. Air ride is fun but one thing I recommend if youre going air is to save up money and buy legit management from the beginning .I had the accuair elevel management and it was great

Initial impressions


The BC Racing coils drive AMAZING! I'm lowered about 2.2-2.3 inches from stock so pretty low over stock. I currently have the dampening set to 10 from full soft all around.

The ride is actually smoother on flat surfaces than the stock suspension. Bumps are absorbed a little stiffer but not back breaking. The coils make the car drive great. Initial turn in feels so much more accurate and stable. Body roll is greatly reduced over stock and it really makes the car feel like its on rails. The coils really improve the driving dynamics of the car and make you want to take every turn harder and harder. freeway on ramps are my new best friends
