Default BC coilover review

After doing some looking, I haven't found a review on the BC coilovers that they make for 2xx and 7/9xx. I've heard from a few people that they like them and from a few others that they don't. I'm interested to know how they perform on a track as they would be going on my drift 245.
Thanks!

Do those look like any 240 struts you've ever seen?

Are you brain dead or just not paying attention?

How much money do you make a year?

Most of us have grown up in the last 10 years and are out of college and doing quite OK.

I personally run a set of Toyota Previa coil overs mounted upside down. They fit great and handle like a dream.

I think it's also important to take into consideration the location of people based off of their income. Don't western areas (especially California) have some of the highest income taxes and sales tax rates? That affects a lot.

Housing is expensive but income tax is federal, state's not bad and sales tax is ~9% like most places.

Yes, that was totally you. I don't have a link, but I wish I did. I think the OP on that thread was from Charleston, SC, and was never seen again after that night. Or it could be the OP on this thread. Good times.

How are the fronts? I'd be fine using a different rear spring perch for more accessible springs/spring rates. That's not difficult to swap at all

All the cool kids are running Ben Kerplunky's coilovers.

Just Kerplunk down the cash and you can be one too.

One word sums them up: Ali-baba Supreme....clearly they're great..if you drive on pool-table smooth roads or mainly park and pose by your car and like near rigid spring rates and nobody knows what for damping..just like every other Aisian made suspension made in Anhui provice regardless of Taiwanese or Japanese boxes...all the same shít


Just run a bead of weld around the rod directly to the shock body of what ever is on your car currently. It'll feel just like that stuff..
PERFECT for drifting and at a price every TBer can afford.
