    BC coilovers installed

    Put them on earlier this week, finally got the stance I was looking for. Handling much improved over stock(had 2 leaky shocks).

    Sourced from RSI, had the best price and service was outstanding.

    Definitely looks slammed. Even a bit lower than I run with aggressive track alignment & setup. As low as you have it, you really should find out if it will survive the real world around you. If so, then you will DEFINITELY need to have the front and rear bump steer curves adjusted by someone competent. There are folks in the PHX vicinity that can point you in the right direction.

    Car is going to Eddie Martin next week for alignment. Going to get his opinion on the height as well. Pretty flat here in AZ, I don’t anticipate a problem, but will watch closely

    Looks like you're at about the same height as my daily. The front lip scrapes everywhere, but hasn't broken over 30k miles, and the car high centers at steep break overs and tall speed bumps. For the most part, take aggressive angles at low speed and its good. However, there are will be some driveways that will make life hell; there is a mark on the top of my bumper from a steep driveway and I just passed on going to look at a new house because the Viper couldn't enter the driveway. Overall, being this low is worth it, the car looks amazing.

    The worst part are bumps on the highway that unload the suspension and then fully compress it (think of a whoop in dirt biking) and the laying frame on the highway.

    I am sitting at 26 1/4 at the rear render lip and 25 3/4 at the front lip. Have put about 50 miles so far and no scrapes. I hope I don’t experience the highway scrape!

    Curious, what silver/gray car is behind the Viper in the second pic?

    Correct, Ftype V8S. Quicker than the GTS, but not as good looking or fun!

    Super easy, took an hour and a half. Played another hour getting the ride height I wanted, it ok a few tries.

    Dont forget to check your valve settings... mine were not equal... roll them all the the way hard (CW) and then go CCW to your desired setting. 10 out from full hard was perfect for me on my Gen 3, 15 out from full hard was perfect for the new owner of my Gen 3! Everyone wins!

    I set them all at 15 clicks, right in the middle. Night and day from the stock set up.

    Thank you sir! Still have yet to find a rear end on a car that I like better than a gen 2 GTS. Still remember the first time one passed me back in the day
