97-13 Chevrolet Corvette C5 / C6 BC Coilovers - DS Type

Part Number: Q-15-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!

Key Features include:

  • Mono-tube Shock Design
  • Digressive Piston and Damping Curve
  • Satin Chrome Finished Shock Body
  • 30 levels of Damping Force Adjustment (Compression/Rebound) Simultaneously
  • Pillowball Mounts where applicable
  • Height Adjustable via Shock Body Maintains Damper Stroke At All Ride Heights
  • One Year Warranty
  • Fully Rebuildable With All Parts Available

Love them

So they fit great and I had no issues installing. Car feels tight in corners and small bumps do not upset the car or feel any differently than stock. The ride quality over larger bumps can be a bit rough compared to factory. I have not had any other coil overs on my c5z. They are basically exactly what I expected. Out of the box they did not lower the rear Any and lowered the front about two inches. So some adjustment will likely be required for how you want your car ride height. The picture is the out of the box ride height.

Excellent product

I bought these for my C5 corvette, they were easy to install, they come preloaded on the spring, they made my car have a better stance, and the ride is incredible!!! Experience them for yourself!!!! Love Em!

Haven't driven yet

The install wasn't bad but I think it should come with new front top bushings. Otherwise awesome so far. I haven't driven the car yet so give me two weeks to finish a few things and I can give another review.
