    BC Coilovers - Anyone running them yet?

    I have heard good things about BCs on other platforms but I'm wondering if any 3/S folks are running them yet. Please post what spring rates you chose, install impressions, driving impressions, etc.

    Thanks!

    Don't know about on the 3s but my neighbour had them on his Mazda 323 hatchback and in less than 12 months he had leaking seals and the mounts started cracking. After seeing that I will never touch them. If they do that on a light hatchback image what they would do on a car as heavy as ours.

    So are there actually any coilovers made for the 3000GT which are GOOD quality? Like, none made in korea or china or whatever 3rd world country they come from. I'd like coilovers one day and all I hear is crap about them being made like shit. Like do cusco or tien make coilovers for these cars?

    JIC and KW are supposed to be good, but they're pricey.
