Basic Coil Over Question BC Coilovers

Question

Hey guys -

just about to install BC coilovers, slightly confused on the instructions.

Should there be a minimum of 8cm of strut INSIDE the lower sleeve ? The instructions are not that clear!

cheers :)

haha i did the same with with mine mate, had to sit and wind them back down 1 turn at a time... but at least you get to have it set where you want it now :P

Edit: next thing is you will look at it once you drop it down and start thinking maybe just a little lower lol

the 8cm is reffering to how much thread is left in the lower mounts, only an issue if the car is going to be set with a VERY high ride height ;)

To lower the car's ride height with the units fitted, raise the car, insert H & S blurb, loosen the bottom locking ring and twist the units by hand to the desired amount, tighten bottom locking ring back up.

It can take a a while to set up as you want them and level all round ;)

Thanks, yup getting there :) kinda just a little lower than stock at the moment at the front, will leave to settle then revist, so just backs to do :) Can see the temptation to keep dropping now lol!

Bek did moan about the clearance when doing the gearbox.....

(on which note I am still sure he didn't get enough from me but hasn't answered back since he did it as was trying to sort out if it was! - too nice for his own good :D )

Ok, tracking question - need to get these aligned but wanted to wait a couple of weeks to see exactly what height to end up at before doing so - apart from tyre wear nothing bad is going to happen if I wait ?
