    The stock camber is -1.2, and you can get that with BCs, down to -2.8. I dont know anyone in NY to install but its not that hard to put in.

    I'm coming in late on this one, but wow, these look great! While I want this for a track setup, I want daily-drive capability; do these things squeak or rattle? I totally get the improvement and have coil-over experience in a few cars -- I just want a quiet setup for this ride.

    Also, have you made any inverted with remote reservoirs? Do they fit on our FiST? Thanks!

    I'm trying to put some miles on my car before hammering it too bad, and think the ride quality could be improved! If I don't get these, I must at least get some better shocks!

    If these coil-overs don't make bad noises, I'm in! I'd say half my old cars were perfectly silent with coil-overs, and the others made be not want to drive the car if it wasn't at the track!

    I've had them on the car now for a couple weeks and I couldnt be happier. As mentioned, the oversprung bouncy nature of the ST is all but gone. It feels like an M3 - more composed while still keeping roll and pitch in check. And its dropped approx an inch with my setup. Zero noises, no rattles or squeaks.

    We can make these for anyone thats interested. Just let me know

    Joe I value you review but I would also like to hear testimonies from ST consumers also befire I buy. Its my very first time purchasing coilovers and wanna make sure these arw the ones for me especially since I missed out on the black friday sale :(
    Im also concerned with rubbing with my 205 45 17 tires in a 1in drop. Would I have to buy spacers?

    I'm pretty much convinced. About the only thing I want to sort out is spring rate. This is a street car with track intentions, but I want to be able to actually drive it to the track! :) My local tracks are Willow Springs and Buttonwillow (figure a couple/few hours of driving each way).

    I appreciate that this is a big boost to handling, and I hope that this remains pleasantly silent -- anyone who has ever had a squeaky/rattly set of coil-overs, understands how you can lose your mind in a hurry!

    So, would you recommend your current car's setup even under the condition of being mostly a street car (i.e., would you recommend a slightly softer spring rate?)?

    Do we have enough people interested for a group buy? :)

    =sigh= me too. I'd probably do this just for aesthetics and anything that will improve ride quality without sacrificing handling is an added bonus. It will ultimately depend on pricing.

    I believe the average pricing will be $999

    We would need a min of 7 for a group buy.

    Street performance, we can do the exact setup I run on mine. Drop up to -2" With excellent balance and ride quality. Big advantage over stock

    Street/Strip performance - for those who want more rotation in the back by increasing the valving to match the spring rates.

    Autox/Race - 50% Street - We'll go up 70% over street performance with matching valving. Quicker turn in

    There is no additional cost for any of the choices above. Its an average of 3 weeks after the buy in to get the sets finished. We've sold now well over 60 sets of BCs without a single warranty issue. Going on 5 years now.

    It looks like we're getting close to seven buyers, already! I'm in, and it looks like we only need a few more commitments before we're off to the races! How much each for this group buy, assuming seven?

    I'm in for a street setup. I know it's adjustable, but I probably won't mess with it very much after it's installed. I'd only be interested in a minimal drop in ride height -- I'm hoping that will translate into a bit more effective travel. Is that the case? If nothing else, it's a better city vehicle when not in vacuum cleaner mode! :)

    Oh, yeah that "$1700 budget" has been blown up already! ;)

    I'll definitely be going for street performance mode as well.

    If street mode has camber adj, damper adj, and ride height then im in for the street setup.

    If someone wants to get a list going, that will work. I dont want to break any vendor rules here - how do we correctly setup a group buy?
