    Looks like the top plate has three bolts, and I'm pretty sure our Mirage uses only two. Does this require modification, or is there something else to this?

    *Photos are for reference only, actual part may differ slightly due to variances in specific make & model of vehicle

    I'd still send them a message and verify. Their other listings do show other pics of coil-overs.

    There was a link posted in the forums to BC racing's website for the Mirage coilovers, but then the page always said not found and I couldn't find the coilovers anymore.

    Do you know what model coils they are and does he go racing? I just plan to drive it regularly. I just want more confidence with turning corners.

    apparently BC offers coilovers for both the hatch and new sedan. from what i know of bc, they aren't the most expensive, because they aren't the best, but they also aren't the worst. I've known people go from raceland coilovers (bargain bin in comparison) to bc coilovers and stick with bc simply because they work.

    it has adjustments for stiffness. so you can set them to soft or rock hard. most likely, you will want somewhere on the soft side but with a little added stiffness. also, the mirage isn't that heavy of a car, i mean its balls light.

    one of the reasons i want to turbo mine to around 150hp, which would make it a 13 second car (stock subaru sti territory). car weight plus me in it, with about 150 wheel horsepower, is an estimated 13.8 second 1/4 mile. 175hp makes it estimated 13.1 second 1/4 mile. (if i can get anywhere near that, but project is on hold sadly).

    @Alex16, if your buddy sets them to rock hard, and then daily's on ****ty roads, i can see him having to replace them often considering his own choices. one of the things i love with wanna-be-racers are their inability to learn. you never want rock hard struts. in fact, you want them "as soft as possible" without ruining cornering ability.

    back when I had adjustable struts on my del sol, I had it set to 5/16 on the scale (1 being soft, 16 being rock hard). this gave the car enough softness to transfer weight, but stiff enough to handle any corner at proper speeds. going rock hard is stupid.....

    knew a kid once who thought getting "drift" coilovers was a good idea. not only were the coilovers set to rock hard, but there was ZERO suspension travel. so when you hit a bump instead of the wheel absorbing the impact, the whole car would jump into the air..... he went around a turn, hit a bump, when he landed he lost traction and ended up totaling his 240. to this day he still doesn't understand that it was his **** suspension's fault. if he had suspension travel, good jounce and rebound, he never would have lost traction....

    sadly, a lot of the subaru kiddo's (i say kids because they have more money than brains) will do the same thing, rock hard suspensions, complaining that they have to replace their suspension more often then they should.... basically abusing the car and abusing the parts. on a smooth track surface, rock hard can benefit due to no bumps, rock, debris, potholes, etc.

    not being rude or anything, just saying for all to read. be smart.

    BC offers many different set ups for coilovers. The entry level coilover at the low price is going to be the most basic spring and damper. I you want higher performance you get different spring rates and you pay more $$$

    Yeah I plan to maintain stock ride height or lower it half an inch. I not going for super stiff suspension since I don't plan to drive on a track. Its just the stock shocks and springs are a bit too disappointing.

    Yes I saw that. I don't plan to race or slam my car so no point in doing that.
