Coilover FAQ: Answers to Coilover Secrets Lie Here... Maybe.

  • Question: How long do custom orders take to build and ship?
  • Answer: Custom orders usually ship between 3 to 4 weeks.  Standard kits are delivered 3-5 days.
  • Question: How do I know if something is in stock or not? 
  • Answer: We generally keep most BC Racing coilovers in stock.  Otherwise, we will mail direct from the manufacturer and notify you that we are.  Communication is key and we take great pride in that.
  • Question: Why upgrade to Swift springs?
  • Answer: Although not necessary, Swift springs use an alloy coined as "HS5.TW."  This material was created in order to maintain the 4 primary suspension factors shown below:
  • The most consistent spring rate throughout the stroke
  • The largest amount of stroke
  • The highest durability against loss of spring height
  • The lightest in weight
  • ...as well as achieving the fastest reaction speed possible to get compliance on road surface conditions. Swift springs are created with proprietary winding methods, as well as some other trade secrets focused on ensuring their springs' separation from the standard market.
  • Question: What is Extreme Low?
  • Answer: This is a special option that we offer for MOST (but not all) of our BR Type models.  It uses a combination of shorter shock bodies and spring lengths to help maximize vehicle drop but still retain normal street drivability.  It is perhaps the ultimate option in aggressive yet useable stance!  Build time is usually 1 week but can take 3 to 4 weeks depending on the parts we have on hand.
  • Question: Why change spring rates and valving?
  • Answer: Some applications require specific components and rates to carry out a desired task.  However, most cars do not require spring rate modifications or valving.  But, if you are looking for a special setup (very stiff for fitment or something more for racing) then let us know!
  • Question: Are BC Racing coilovers rebuildable?
  • Answer: Yes!  They also come with a 1 year warranty to cover factory defects.  If you are beyond the specified warranty period, contact us and we can help you.
  • Question: What is your return policy?
  • Answer: Returns must be requested within 14 days of ordering.  You will be provided with an RMA, shipping instructions, and charged a 25% restock fee in most circumstances.  The coilovers must be in uninstalled and new condition.  If your order was customized, it is non-returnable because it was built with parts specific to your application.
  • Question: How do you ship your coilovers?
  • Answer: We ship all coilovers via UPS.  In certain circumstances, we ship via USPS.
  • Question: Why buy from you versus other stores and shops?
  • Answer: We have proven industry experience and we are authorized retailers of the products we sell.  Oftentimes, eBay sellers sell products that are replicas or are unauthorized retailers which renders the factory warranty void.  We are also true enthusiasts!  Visit our Instagram page and you will see that very clearly.  This is where we drop the mic.
