Hey everyone!

Looking for folks whom have installed BC Racing Coil Overs on a Challenger sitting on 20s"

My 2010 R/T Classic is on its way from Quebec, and my BC Racing Coils are also on their way, so...just dying of the wait for both....so i would like some info.. and pics if ya got any...:wink2:

Have any issues getting it aligned after dropping it 1.5"-2" ? Don't want to spend more money right away after buying those coils and the car :4: My friend and I will be doing the install in my moms garage [yeah for living in an apartment with sloped parking lot...]and then ill take it to the shop for the alignment but really thats my only concern is alignment...

I've had BC coilovers for about a year now. 5K miles and no alignment with no unusual tire wear to date.

I am running BC racing coilover, about 4 months. I dropped the front of the car 2 1/4" and the rear 1 3/4". I also installed ajustable bushings and had it alligned after install so I had no problems. I had a bit of a hard time getting it off the lift once the front end was dropped, but used some wheel dollies and fixxed that problem. Cant remember anything other problems at the moment, and if I do I will let you know.

Had BC coils on my car for around a year now I think. Work exactly as they are supposed to. Getting the perfect height that I wanted was most time consuming during install. Probably dropped a little less than 2 inches. Im on 22s though and dont have STP. I didnt need to install any adjustable bearings or upper control arms for camber.

Thanks for the feedback Folks! HULK you got a pic of your ride from the side??

How long was the process of getting the height and what did it involve exactly? lol

Im leaned towards 2" but haven't fully decided yet.

Well for the rear adjustment you cant adjust the height with the spring and collar system installed. So you have to set the rings where you think will be best and then put it in and see if that is where you want the height. And if you didn't get the height you wanted then you have to take it back out which involves dropping the lower control arm if I remember correctly. Its pretty much a guess and check with the height in the rear.

I was actually able to adjust the rear ride height without having to un-install the springs. I was able to gain enough access to the adjustment collars by only removing the rear shock. I did have to spray the collars with WD-40 first, otherwise there was no way those suckers would turn!

If you've got an IG, check out dear_jondog. He just dropped his Challenger with BC coil overs.

When you get the old spring out adjust the new one to about the amount you want to lower it. Go from there. I will get a side pic posted later.

Well that would have been nice on my install haha. The collars were too far up into the metal sleeve thing that I couldnt get the wrench on them.
