One thing I don't like about the RCE/KW/etc coilovers is that you lose travel if you lower the car. This doesn't seem ideal. I guess it depends on how much travel you start with though. Maybe it still ends up being more travel than BC/ISC/Fortune/etc.
Hey Ben, since my main complaint with my coilovers is the stiffness, wouldn't a slightly softer spring cure some of the problem?
Since I still have a lot of possible suspension travel with our coilover design, I've inquired to Swift Spring because they make softer springs specifically for Stance/BC setups. For a couple hundred dollars I'm probably going to try that before swapping out for anything else. Have you looked into that already?
