Which ones?! Koni+GC vs BC BR

Looking at coilovers, I want to be as low as possible and have stiff spring rates. My friend has BC BR extreme lows and i love them but i heard they arent able to go as low on our cars (he has a wrx) So i have been trying to decide between the Koni+GC or BC coilovers. Ive searched and cant seem to find any pictures of either coilover on max low. Any advice helps. Thanks guys!!!

I have the GC and Konis.
I love them and I'm slammed
Keep in mind that they come with lifetime warranty and that GC comes with custom Eibach springs
I suggest you order 7" springs with stiff rates. You'll be very happy I promise.
The BC coils are great as well but more expensive, harder to raise &lower, & only comes with one year warranty.

Lifetime Warranty FTW

Raising and lowering is just as simple as the koni/GC set up. All you have to do is break the lower collar loose, spin it up to the desired height, and spin the entire shock and spring assembly down or up. Having the full body coilover set-up keeps the shock travel consistent no matter what height your at which will always make the ride better.

Honestly between the two, you cant really go wrong with either one, you just have to decide what you want. I have BC coilovers and they ride extremely nice and I dont regret getting them.

I'm well aware of the process but GC and koni are easier. All you have to do is spin the collar. It may not be that much easier but it is overall.


Both setups are amazing but I'd opt for the GC koni for the reasons I stated above. You'll also be lower which is your goal

Thanks for the help guys!!! It is greatly appreciated! Ive got Tokico HTS right now but I think Konis would be better because of the adjustable perch. And MatthewYu, do I just make a note when ordering the springs to order them in 7 inches? Thanks again

I would call them personally.
Ground Control is based out of California and they're techs are very helpful. And request for shorter and stiffer springs and they'll make a work order. Just as long as you're purchasing through them.
I suggest you check out TireRack right now. They have a special on Koni's last month and it only cost me $122 a shock for the fronts.
