    Are you using the camber plates and if so did you center those vsm centering on the hole? My Lancer ones are not centered, but the caster adjustment is the reason.

    I am not sure if my strut tower needs to be rewelded or the holes just aren’t centered. I took a look at the drawing for the current strut tower I built and the strut stud holes are concentric. Not sure what’s going on here.
    Side note: the hole in the center of my strut brace plates are 4”.

    So, even though the strut hats will bolt in regardless of orientation, there *is* a "correct" orientation for them. Try dropping the strut out of the tower a bit and spin the hat around until the capture nut is centered in the tower.

    Re: Official BC Coilover Kit Development Interest.

    What I am more interested here is if the strut tower "ring plate" should be concentric with the hole in the strut tower? When Rich sent out the template for drilling out the shock tower was that template centered on the strut hole. I am not sure if I should remake my strut brace rings, I do know that the 3 fasteners for the strut mount lie within a base circle. In the drivers mount pic you can see how far offset the ring is from the hole in the strut tower.

    to me it looks like one of the mounts was drilled in the wrong location but maybe it's just the pics. The left looks more off compared to the right.

    The rings were CNC machined and identical, so I have to take a closer look tonight.

    Re: Official BC Coilover Kit Development Interest.

    re january 2021 I want to ask if the pricing is still current

    looking at er/br , L body kit .. thinking late spring time early summer / can afford ... (?)

    and I don't want to waste half the cost on mediocre parts just to be able to drive it a little as I work on it

    also if someone knows the # rating for the stock shelby charger / no a/c and with a/c .. I need to know to match up the replacement spring .. or at least know where same as , is , on the listed spring rates

    adding a large intercooler and heavier manifolds etc I can see the a/c spring rate being the better idea to start with

    I think the prices went up by $50 on the ER kit from BC for the full kit but I can honor the price on the webpage.

    Just an FYI, if you are driving your car daily, the softest springs are fine. Rich can verify, maybe I got stiffer ones and don't remember, but I thought I got the softest and then turn them up when I take the car to the track. Regardless, there is a lot of adjustment and unless you are tracking your car, softer is better (in my opinion).

    Re: Official BC Coilover Kit Development Interest.

    thanks Rich !
    ..I past my speed secrets book on to a friend .. so don't have one
    50 odd bucks isn't going to be an issue .. figured there would be a bump up anywho.

    I already have the 92-93 knuckles and big r/t brakes and , for later , a nice clean duel pivot K frame & arms

    and thanks for the heads up .. as good as stock is good enough for now ..I have a lot more to do before I worry about it being a track car though that's the objective as there's a really nice road course called Mosport about 40 min up the highway ...

    and yeah lighter sounds right .. I had two 86 turbo z's , exactly the same gun metal blue . silver interior cars .. one had manual mirrors and no rear wiper the second car had power mirrors and rear wiper .. both had a/c

    the first car drove much better it was lighter feeling and much more "nimble" feeling than the second car..
    always figured "base power group" probably meant a front spring change to accommodate things like the 72 pound 16 way driver's seat etc ..
    -yeah I weighed mine ,after carting it 1/2 a mile outta the pick a part "farm yard"..

    when I did the shelby suspension on my turismo YEARS ago I had really good o-e rear shocks & springs .. they were stiff as heck .. much like pushing down on a v8 dart trunk that had re arched springs .. and man did it turn right good at 50-ish...
