BC coilover ride quality?
Hey guys..not entirely new to the forums, but somewhat new to the car still. I know the topic of lowering the car and ride quality has been discussed many times, but I wanted to pose a more specific question and get some feedback.
I lowered the car on springs about 2 months ago. My car only has 40k miles on it, so the shocks are(were) in fine condition before. In that couple of months the ride quality diminished very fast. The shocks are very worn out and the car is obviously pretty bouncy at this point. I was surprised how quickly they were gone actually…
Anyway, so I could replace the shocks but I’m not a huge fan of running a shock that has its optimal operating range at stock ride height. The ride quality in the car has me pretty bummed since this is my dd. I have been tossing around the idea of coilovers, but am unsure if this would give me what I’m looking for. I don’t want to spend the money and be in the same spot. I’m at a point of maybe just moving to a different car, but would give this a shot if it will show a significant improvement. I know that stage 2 or 3 coilovers will net the best ride, but I can’t justify the price.
So my question is, how does the ride quality of BC coilovers lowered say 1.5” front/2.5” rear from stock compare to stock ride quality? I know ride quality can be subjective, so for reference I would say that stock ride quality for me was borderline stiffness/overall discomfort anyway.
Thanks for any input!
