yup. and if you take a lock ring out probably even lower. But my fronts are inverted im not sure if the ones he is selling are. so they might be in different sleeves.

also When i got my kit which I was told by bc that I was the very first. I had to get different rear springs because they were to tall and the car was almost stock ride height when it was adjusted all the way down. Hopefully they noted that

Any chance to get pics of your suspension on the car with the wheels off?

:D

I know this is purely subjective, but how does the car handle with these coilovers?
Thoughts on damping, rebound? I am this close to pulling the trigger after seeing pics of Domestic's ride :thumbup:

like up on four jackstands with wheels off?

Yeah, I'd like to see the rear springs/perches and the front coilover assembly exactly how you have it set up now. Just remove wheels and snap some pics por favor.

No Nick! Don't do it! Your car doesn't need any more improvements! :evilgrin:

the handling is great. I had koni yellows and H&R race springs before this and it handles better than that combo.

I auto-x alot and drive around town very spirited looking for corners with green lights


Ill take some pics later tonight

Thanks for sharing the pics domestic. What kit do you have?

To add , you can get custom spring rates , if you want custom rates we would need to know what rates and to see if it's possible to do without having to re-valve the cartridge.

Those actually are the version one's of coilover kits from BC (hence the V1 Design name). Since those came out they have made some improvements, one being the diameter of the piston and damper body, while also changing to the gold color now and that indicates the version two or non V1. It seems that your kit also does not have dampening knobs on top and are using different style rear. The rears you have pictured has the adjustment on the bottom which BC still does use on some of there BMW E36 kits , however now on the focus kit they use a locking collar .. similar to the front design. Technically those are the V1 series , similar to but not the same as the BR series which are the ones we are offering .. in fact that's the only series available for the focus now.

If we can get enough people in on a "group buy" deal then you can expect a Killer deal , but as I said. It really depends on how many people we can get involved, regardless how many people we get you will save .. obviously the more the better for everyone. Also just to add , this doesn't have to be specific focus kits , if you have a buddy or another car you want BC's for we can add that into the total amount of kits .. just trying to help the best we can.

Contact us via email or PM if anyone is truly interested. Thanks

I'm definitely interested but my purchasing window is a couple of months out as I'm finishing my build on the '04
However, I will be getting these coilovers for my '06 as well as a Quaife ATB from you guys so for now I'm going dormant...

Sounds great. Anyone who's ever dealt with me knows that once I make my mind up on something it's money in the bank.
It's just a waiting game now, as in waiting for my build on the '04 to wrap up.
In actuality I will be grabbing the Quaife from you first as I need to upgrade the clutch at the same time in preparation for the eventual turbo upgrade :thumbup:

The suspension upgrade will be soon thereafter...
