Quick update:

I haven't bottomed out once since the recent changes. I've purposely been TRYING to, but have yet to bottom out. Very happy with the changes made. This will more than likely be the way it stays.

Sadly, the boots on the sway bar links from ISC have already torn. I guess it's time to fabricate some custom sway bar links......

I had garagistic.Com make some custom ones for me. E61. Looking to improve on my ride quality. H&r springs with Bilstein b8 shocks is getting tiresome on 19" wheels . Coilovers from ISC should be here next week.

No complaints. They're comfortable. I'd probably get their nicer springs since it's a small price to upgrade, but not sure how that affects ride quality.

Wife approves of the ride.

My two cents to support this thread.

Using iSC coilovers over a year now. No complaints. Drive my E61 daily. I got "air suspension delete kit" never missed my air suspension! When I drive with my wife, this car used to be hers when I got it I installed the coilovers, she doesn't even notice a difference.







Coded air suspension error away and the car looks like million bucks (at least to me)

alexbaldy - so did you just go with the spring rate they gave you? Did you get the street comfort or street sport? How much lower did you go under stock? Have you experienced any bottoming out?

sorry for all the questions.

I called ISC Coilovers and talked to them. Unfortunately, I don't remember his name, but he recommended street version springs. My car is lower than stock about 1 inch, my goal with these coilovers was to get rid of self-leveling suspension and decrease the fender gaps. I can much lower, but it's a dd car. No problems with bottoming out.

Sorry it took me a while to respond
