no problem. Ya thats what im thinking. Right now I have tein s-techs.lol I didnt know that the whole world hated them until after I had them on and then came onto the forums. But the s-techs look awesome the only thing i would do is lower the front some more.

But i cant wait to get the coilovers and rear sway bar.

You have to losen the bottom ring and screw the coiliover into to bottom metal piece. You should loosen the two big bolts first so the coilover can move. I hope this helps, it's kinda hard to explain, but it's pretty easy to do. You can also IM BC Racing. His screen name is BCRacingUSA.

Here is a pic of my 07 STi with the BR series coil-overs. The build quality is excellent. They are a great alternative to Tein Flex and Cusco zero-2 (both I have installed before.)

i think i might get them to sign up to this forum as a manufacturer, I spoke with pete, the Owner of Bc Racing North America, and he expressed interest, as hes been a big part of helping me out with getting these out there so quickly!

For everyone that has these, what setting do you have them set on? I think right now mine are 13 in the front and 14 in the rear.

Well supposedly the inverted design reduces unsprung weight thus making better handling...and it's capable of taking a stronger side load versus a non inverted. Also it's supposedly has a smoother shaft movement and since the shaft is inside it's more resistant to dust and debris...less frequent rebuilds?

What does BC have to say about these new inverted coilovers? any info?

One thing though i'd like to know is inverted struts tend to clunk a bit is this true with these? If they do, does a little grease go a long way?

Hopefully someone will get these. Now i'm torn between what to get...inverted or non Either way it seems BC makes a great product, I still haven't seen any bad reviews.

Are the new inverted coilovers basically the same as the BR series - i.e. new design with locking cup, 95$ rebuild, etc etc?

And the true salesman emerges... LOL So what's your offer? I'm always open to suggestion and I know I could sell these if I wanted especially since they have never been installed.

I like the RPM2 and the GTC01. Both in 17x8 or 18x8 in hyperblack. I like you thoughts on a car buddy with parts hookup...lol That works too.
