FAQ

CAN I REQUEST A CUSTOM SPRING RATE OR CUSTOM DAMPING FOR MY BC RACING COILOVER KIT?

Yes! If you are needing a custom kit then we want to make sure that you get the perfect fitment for your ride. If you know the exact fitment of spring rates that you need you can send us an email with the desired choices or during checkout just inform us in the comment box listed below. You do not need to inform us about damping requirements as we will be able to match them with the spring rates that you have requested. If however, you do require specific sizes for both please send us an email and we will make sure that we get the requested sizes for you. Please keep in mind that if ordering custom spring rates there is typically a 1-3 week building time. 

CAN I GET AN “EXTREME DROP” KIT OR A LOWER THAN NORMAL BC COILOVER KIT?

Yes! We want to make sure that you get exactly what you are looking for in your coilover kit. We have various kits that are available that have shorter spring and shock combos together so that you can get that ultimate low. Please keep in mind when ordering that this will affect how high the kit can go. We recommend that extreme drop kits only be for those wanting to get slammed low and not for track vehicles. If you have questions about which options to order, send us an email and one of our trained sales representatives can help you with selecting a kit. 

DO YOU OFFER THE SWIFT SPRING UPGRADES?

Yes! We are able to upgrade the standard coilover springs for the Swift Springs for some of the brands that we carry. Please send us an email if you have further questions regarding the Swift Spring upgrades and we will give you more details.  

WHAT ARE EXTENDERS, AND DO I NEED THEM?

Extenders are an add-on accessory which is connected to the damping adjustment knob located on the top of the coilover. The extenders are a steel cable with a protective coat layered on top that prevent any imperfections from developing with time. Extenders are very helpful with adjusting the rear damping settings and save a significant amount of time. If you do not have extenders you will have to remove your sears or liner everytime you want to change the damping. Extenders are a much easier/faster solution, giving you more flexibility to do the things you really want to do. 

WHY AREN’T CAMBER PLATES AVAILABLE FOR SOME VEHICLES

Camber plates are dependent on the suspension and make of vehicle that you have. Some vehicles from factory design can not support camber plates and need adjustable Arm/Link setups.  In this case you would need a different form of camber adjustment part, in this case just send us an email and we will help you find the specific adjustments for your vehicle. 

DO THE BC RACING COILOVERS COME WITH NEW ENDLINKS?

If the coilover kit requires a new set of end links BC Racing includes them. However, most cars typically do not require new end links. 

HOW DO CUSTOM ORDERS WORK AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP?


All custom orders are placed within 24-48 hours after placement and are built to order. These custom orders which range from custom spring rates, dampening and, swift spring kit  take about 2-3 weeks to ship. If the time is extended or longer than this period, we will make sure to contact you to let you know of the changed time period. Once shipped and received all you need to do is install them into your vehicle and adjust the specs to your preference.  

CAN YOU INSTALL THE BC COILOVERS ON MY VEHICLE?

DO I NEED AN ALIGNMENT AFTER MY BC COILOVERS ARE INSTALLED?

 We recommend getting an alignment done after any coilover installation is ideal. Many areas can be altered such as the camber and toe settings which can change the overall height of the vehicle. A professional alignment done after the installation will reduce any issues from arising in the future and make sure that you get the best product.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR A BC COILOVER KIT TO SHIP TO MY DOOR?.

All orders are placed within 24-48 hours after being placed. This all dependent on the specific order (ie. custom) and if the product is in stock at the time of the order.  Custom orders take anywhere from 2-3 weeks to be made so shipping times will be longer. As well with shipping internationally there will be a longer period of time. For more information on shipping times, send us an email of your location and we can give you a quote on shipping.

DO THE BC COILOVERS COME PRE-SET OUT OF THE BOX?

No, BC Racing does not pre-set ride-height or damping from the factory.  You will need to install the specs that you need or an install shop will need to do so. We recommend experimenting with different heights and settings in order to find a fit that works for your driving style and requirements.
