Are BC Racing coilovers worth it?

The ride quality was actually improved for the most part. There are exceptions to this like crossing railroad tracks where the ride gets pretty harsh. But around town and on the freeway, the coilovers soak up bumps really well, arguably better than the stock suspension.

Your shock absorbers are the primary suspension components that actually help “absorb shock” preventing continued bounce every time you accelerate, stop, corner or hit a bump.

Do coilovers make your car lower?

Coilovers typically lower your car more than a set of springs alone, leaving you vulnerable to steep driveways, speed bumps & rough, uneven road surfaces. Coilovers are more expensive than lowering springs.

How much do coilovers drop when they settle?

When people ask if lowering springs need to settle, they are asking whether or not the ride will go even lower after the initial install of lowering springs. The answer to that is yes. Your ride height will probably drop slightly more (up to 1.5 inch) once you drive it around for a couple of days.

Are coilovers worth it?

Do BC coilovers go low?

Also take spring rates into consideration. These coilovers with higher spring rates won’t allow you to drop your car as low as it would go with lower spring rates. I believe that is why, by default, BC gives you the extreme drop bodies with spring rates 12/10 and above.
