    you can adjust the height WAY down if thats where you are sitting. you'll also want to give the car a day or so to settle.

    So um... Bump!

    How low do these things go? I am thinking about selling my H&Rs for something that goes lower. I am already right around 2.25" lower than stock front and rear on stock sized tires but I would like to go lower.

    i have had the car touching the ground with these. frankly, thats not something i'd recommend. but they do go very low.

    Can you send me any more information about the kit they offer for the mazda3? I am probably going to be in the market for a new setup in the spring because I almost have my H&Rs at maximum low right now and I have 1" of rake.

    Awesome! Thanks!

    Are you sure about the spring rates? That seems pretty high considering BCs "extreme package" uses 7k front springs and 4k rear springs. That's twice as stiff in front and more than twice as stiff in the rear which seems pretty excessive.

    i havent put these through there paces on a track but when i do drive to and from work its much more comfortable than road magnets + stock shocks that i previously had. I've got my car sitting low (on the rears i angle my index finger in the guards 225/40/18) and am set at 12 front and 8 rear. i was at 15/10 which id compare a touch nicer than spring/shock combo before, but am enjoying a softer setting. i cant compare stock ride as i haven't been stockin way too long.

    for the price these were win for me and glad i picked these up.

    also cant compare any other setups as theres not many in my area with mods

    Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but can anyone do me a favor and measure the diameter of the threads/shock housing where the perch is threaded? Is it identical to BC's coil's diameter? Thinking of air bags in the future.

    Thanks!
