Looking for some feedback on different brand coilovers for my SH Forester. Looking to buy a set of BC's, KiDo's or MCA's or any other brands that anyone knows would be great. Looking to lower the Foz heaps and throw it round the hills and do a few track days in the future. Obviously this is the start of the suspension mods but I wanted to start off with a great platform. Thanks!

I heard they are good but the pricing is through the roof for the purple and reds! Anyone got BC/BR model coilovers? They look reasonably priced and rebuildable.

I have a few mates that are running the MCA Blues and they say they are awesome for the price (I have them but my cars still getting rebuilt) and I also have a mate that's running BC Racing Coils and also says they are pretty great.

Do you have any specific reason you would want the MCA Reds/Purples ?

Also Check your PMs Berjo

Yep, spoke to Josh at MCA and he said that if I was interested in doing track days or spirited driving through the hills then purple or reds have better valving in the shocks. I would love to go in a Foz that has the blues, maybe that's all I need?

Yea talking with my mechanic when I took my S Edition in for engine upgrades he recommended the blues for light tracking and hills runs most weekends but said that the purples/reds would also be good but i guess it just depends on how much your willing to spend and also depending on what other suspension mods you have like bracing etc.

I can't complain about KiDos on the track. They're F8:R8kg and basically leave the dampeners on 36/40 clicks from soft front and 40/40 clicks from soft rear. I've had BCs before and they were not bad!

Do i read that as 1/40 would be the hardest setting for the dampeners

Range of 1 to 40 clicks from the softest setting with 1 being the softest and 40 being the hardest
