changing from BC coilovers to STI suspension

Postby hectickmind » Mon Jan 01, 2018 4:23 pm

Last month i bought a car with BC coilovers, and it's been a very dirty ride for me. i've adjusted them up and down, and made them as loose as they go, but my $800 commadore drives smoother than my suby wagon with these coilovers. any suggestions for smooth ride? i dont if boost kicks in around the corner and the car rolls onto its side, as long as it's a smooth ride untill that point! but seriously i live in the country and the roads are not flat! any info is appreciated

Swap them for good condition standard suspension.

I’m loving Shockworks on challenging surfaces: digressive damping means better control and recovery... plus little to no need for uprated swaybars...

Thanks for the replys. I acquired used suspension from a recently crashed liberty. Spent the morning installing them and the ride cumfort is beautiful! Although the drive up and down Mt Hotham is a bit wonky as expected. I didn't come across anything exciting or different while swapping suspension over, so no pictures. Thanks again for the replys
