Its wet outside so I cant push it - but the ride and comfort is a huge improvement over stock. No longer does the car exhibit huge rebound forces (jouncing / bobbing up and down) over expansion joints. In stock form it felt like the spring rates were not matched for the slow speed shock settings, with the springs overpowering the valving. The Fiesta would also bite in a corner then lose its set, then bite again (bobbing). From the limited drive with the BCs, the car feels more balanced, no longer overly sprung. It a good increase in comfort with smoother transitions. Much like taking the edge off while gaining confidence in the chassis. There is no increase in bump steer. Weight drops 6.4lbs over the stock suspension.
I sent the shock ride height measurements and spring rates 6k/4K to BC Racing so each set will look and ride just like the prototype set I spec'd out. I set the ride height at a 7/8 drop in the rear, 1" drop in the front. There is plenty of room to slam the car but thats not my style.
As I said, these will be on sale on our site for Black Friday. Or you can grab them from another vendor. Give BC a couple weeks to get these settings in their system if ordering elsewhere. Otherwise your set we ship to you will be spec'd out to our settings. www.2j-racing.com
All in all, an excellent upgrade and I am loving the ride and handling.
