99-02 Nissan Silvia S15 BC Racing coilovers- BR Type
BC Racing BR Type Coilover for Nissan Silvia S15
What can we say about the BC coilovers for the S15. Most Silvia owners already know what they want. They want a budget friendly, but quality coilover. This is exactly what the BC BR series is. BC has been in the coilover market for a long time they have grown to be very popular over the last few years and rightly so. Their quality is amazing for the cost. Don't get us wrong, we are here to sell products, but we are also very avid enthusiasts ourselves. We are not just a online parts retailer selling the same parts as dozens of other online companies. We are a shop rooted in building and driving S chassis cars. We run BC coilovers on a few of our cars. We chose BC because they were priced right among the rest of the sub 1200 brands. We did not need all the features of the higher end models. We are not competing for professional status. We are going out to the track for weekend track days and competing in amateur series having fun and driving cars past their limits. Our BC coilovers have done great and have performed amazing for us. We also chose them because we wanted to have easy access to replacement parts or repairs if we happen to blow a damper. BC has a really good replacement program that allows you to buy the parts you need if you happen to have a part that breaks. Although after 3 years of running almost every weekend during the summer we have yet to have a failure. If you have any questions about coilover feel free to chat with us via our live chat, or send us an email. We are always happy to help you pick the best product so you can get the most out of your projects. Below are some brief explanations to some of the features that BC coilovers come with.
The BR series coilovers use a large 46mm 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 its temperature varies which can lead to changes in the damping characteristic of the unit. BC Racing only use a very high quality oil with their coilovers which helps maintain a more predictable ride.
