lowering a 2009 Turbo Honda Fit - BC Racing Coilovers


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine has been asking me to help him upgrade the suspension on his beloved Turbo Honda Fit (yes it has a 🐌💨 on it) for over a year now. Actually he is my CPA.  Since he has gone above and beyond for me over the years, almost 15 to be exact, and also helped me through a few tricky tax situations at no extra charge, I decided to do him a couple of solids. First, i bought these coilovers for him a few months ago. Surprised him with a set of BC Racing. Today, i finally got him up on the lift and did it (no charge of course).

The front was dropped about 1 - 3/8" and the rear just about 2".  Tomorrow i will take it outside and drive it up and down the street. Make sure nothing is rubbing. Do more adjustments and then lock them in place.
