I purchased a set BC coilovers on May 2008 and installed the kit in my car . I only drive my car for daily work, and have put it approximately 4000 miles.

I drove my car on highway with my family last Sunday, all of a sudden, I had this happen to me after the car was out of control (see the attached images).

Holly shit, it was ridiculous!! The product is a crap, I am going to sue this company for this ‘shit’ product.

Wow sorry to hear this. How is your IS F and most importantly was everyone okay in the car when this happened?

Time to stick with the more reputable Japanese brand coilovers.

Wow that's sucks and sorry to hear. I was debating on these coilovers as well but didn't feel too good about the price of them. 1300.00 for a set of ISF coilovers sounds too good to be true...cause every other Japanese brand set starts off at least 2000.00 or more for a set.

What kind of car did those come off of? the coilovers in the pic didnt come off a ISF look at the mounts. I hope you and your family are ok, can you tell us how the accident happened?

I also want to buy these any help would be appreciated.

The pics are of a macpherson strut (which is load bearing and structural) and not of the ISF BC coilovers. They also do not look like they are broken, then look like the bottom half is unscrewed. This looks to be a slanderous attack on BC's reputation in a tough economy. I have many hard miles on my set as I was the first to test them and prove out the application. While I do hope your family is OK if you had an accident, I would like to get more detailed information on what you are trying to do here. Its pretty easy to google BC racing coilovers and get to this forum if you had a cause.

you seem to have taken care to jump on every car forum there is out there. Perhaps you have a valid argument, or perhaps you do not. All I can say is that the ISF application would never see that type of lateral force on it as it is double wishbone and that there are many factors that would cause a scenario you describe.

google "The reason for terrible accident"

Wow, you're right. I googled it and he really has posted this ridiculous story on every forum out there. Can we boot this clown from this one?

Also of note, BC racing has never been contacted about any such incident. Thanks Admin.
