SCP coilovers are the best suspension investment I've put into my car, I've run tokico blues ,kyb and these are the best if anyone wants true adjustment this is the only way to go

That looks fantastic.

What color is that on your car exactly? Was thinking of getting my painted similar color next year.

Did you get SCP's rear coil overs too? Or are you running a conventional spring out back? Also, did you consider getting the double adjustable setup, or did you figure the single adjustable would be good enough for what you wanted?

Hi

is there a chance that you can post the dimension of the mounting brackets, these are the black pices, please

The shocks alone cost only 250 $ a pair,and 500 $ for just 4 brackets is pretty hefty .

what springs are you using ,specs please

any info is appreciated

so long

Sorry for the delay been going threw some family stuff

Just the front single adjustable it's just a street car

Car looks great! The lack of dust boot on the shock scares me far away from trusting those for driver duty though. Is the travel limited? The shock looks awfully shorter with that big upper mount
Travel is good I've dailyed it every day sence I put them on

I'm planning on pulling the trigger and ordering these. Does anyone else here have any direct experience with these coil overs? I think I want to go with the double adjustable version.

From what I gather, they seem to be similar to the group purchase ones discussed 8 years ago.

You can add an adjustable perch to the modified bilsteins in the sticky, if you want. Id do that, as the shocks in the pic are known to be softer, even with the adjust all the way down.

There was a group buy here years ago; several people here had these at one time.

Is there a Manufacturer and PN available for the adjustable perches? I'm curious to know what these look like.

When you say this, do you mean that the QA1's are not as firm? When talking with Bill at SCP, he told me that even though they are 18 way adjustable, anything over 7 or 8 gets more firm than would be desirable for most drivers.

Search for the threads; I can remember that very few people are still running them from the group buy.

The cost was even higher than the Konis, at the time.

You Can crank the konis up too stiff, even several years old.

Of course, they're not available. :)

I'm going the bilstein route; the sleeves and adjusters are available from summit racing, and others.

There's a thread here how to adapt the spring perches we have to the sleeves somewhere.


Looks like Bruce is running the ones you're looking at, I'd ask him what he thinks.
