bc racing c-169-br coilovers
« on: Jan 15, 2021, 10:39:08 pm »
 So who's tried the new BC racing coilovers for the ra64??? Now that i look they're made for the irs rear ends in the supra (shit).
but still, it's a step in the right direction.

I'm just wondering if the fronts come with adjustable camber plate like the set I just put in my 06' civic si.

The MR2 guys aren't particularly impressed with BC gear, but I don't have any first hand knowledge.

For RA64? Nah, AFAIK such a thing doesn't exist; I see an option for the Supra MA61 though, which matches the part number you included. Some folks have adapted the MX73 BC BR coilovers with S13 front tophats to RA65s, but the spring rates are really high (10k/8k). I built my own short stroke coilovers (see link in signature) and run 8k/6k springs. I'm exploring options with a new local supplier to cover all of the options (Celica ST/GT and Celica GT-S/Supra) and get proper quality coilovers.
