A week ago I bought higher springs rates for my BC Extreme coilovers. Today I replaced all springs and got the front coils do my desired height. (low)
however, when i tried to lower the back coils... the rears second adjustment (the bolt) did not budge! so I took apart the whole coilover and noticed that the second adjustment had no space to thread in. This is because the body of coliover was already maxed out... The height I had originally wasnt even low...
I guess my question is...the people who do have the "Extreme low option" have this problem trying to slam?
Here it is ... Also is the threaded body that length for everyone else?

Initially I wanted to start this thread because I was frustrated due to the fact that it took me forever to change all springs. Then, learning near the end that i had to remove my suspension once more to cut them and then putting them back in...
Also, Scheme and Hustle don't worry about it until you try lowering the rears. I have a strong feeling that I am the only rare case that this happens.
i believe they gave me a regular kit with just a shorter cartridge. I just got an email from a BC tech again asking for my serial number on my coils to research the build specs on them.
So who knows All I know is a manufacturer tells me to cut something on my suspension is suspect!
here is the pic
now its a shorter bolt and the end of the cartridge
Thanks, Grand. And, when you go to adjust your setup, PM me if you need a hand with any issues.
Glad you sorted it out OP, does sound like they gave you a macguyvered sort of rear setup, definitely not proper.
edit: Wanted to say my standard BC BRs are not maxed out in the front or rear. I actually had to raise the car ~3/4'' because it was regularly scraping frame and teeter tottering on speed bumps (I attribute some of that to the mountainous area I'm in).
