09-14 Acura TL FWD/AWD BC Racing Coilover - DS Type
BC Racing Coilovers DS Type for the 09-14 Acura TL FWD/AWD
Part Number: A-75-DS
BC Racing Coilovers DS Series is perfect for street driving and occasional road course duty. With easily accessible adjustment knobs for fine tuning your compression/rebound and separately adjustable ride height, having a performance coilover system couldn’t be any easier. You choose how low or high you want your vehicle, no preset ride height here, and patented concave lower locking ring keeps it locked in. Ride height is adjusted by raising and lowering the shock body; this maintains the same ideal damper stroke at ALL ride height levels for the best ride under any conditions. The pillowball mount option provides the most available feedback possible from your suspension and to sharpen your steering response. All this while providing a strong, attractive looking coilover system.
The DS series BC Racing Coilovers use a large 44mm diameter piston in a 53mm diameter damper body to maximize oil capacity. As the damper unit operates the oil contained within heats up. The viscosity of oil changes as it's temperature varies which can lead to changes in the damping characteristics of the unit.
BC Racing Coilovers use a very high quality oil with their coilovers but go that extra mile to maximise performance and build their BR range with a large 53mm diameter damper body. This increases the capacity of the unit which increases the volume of oil which in turn reduces the peak temperature and significantly improves damper performance.
Designed to Maximize Driver Feel
BC Racing Coilovers new proprietary digressive piston design offers increased damping force at low piston velocities while maintaining a linear damper feel at higher piston velocities. One of the greatest advantages of increased low-speed damping force relates to what the driver feels, e.g roll, pitch, dive, and quick weight transitions on technical road courses. This is the key difference between the BC Racing BR series and DS series, but makes the biggest difference where it counts!

I've been using sleeve compression springs in the past. It gave it a nice look, but a crazy ride (for the most part SK2). However, for this ride, I wanted a "stance", but not sacrificing my ride this time. I went through several websites before landing on BCRacing coilovers. Da^^N!
This coilover system is the truth! I'm not paid for this review, I'm only excited that it's money WELL spent. First, the regular drop is mind blowing (no need for an extreme kit unless you want it literally sitting on the ground). Second, the stance is absolutely beautiful! Third, no need for camber kits, as the drop from the strut body didn't affect the camber. Fourth, the adjusting dampers at the top of the strut body actually works (the car is 2" lower, but rides like stock after adjusting softness). Lastly, I'm so dang satisfied!
FYI, I started off slow, but over the weekend I've got her up to 120MPH with no scrapping bumps, no bottoming out on the undercarriage of strut body. The speed isn't important, the responsiveness in the struts is what's important at those speeds. I just wanted to make sure this kit can handle what I throw at it; and it does!
