This BC Racing DS Series front coilover damper set is a great value kit based on the BR Series. These DS series Dampers superseed the BR Series as they include Digressive valves. When ordering you will need to choose the front hub spacing that is correct for your car; The 54mm front hub bolt spacing was used for the 172 ph1, 172 Ph2, 172 CUP and 182. The 60mm hub spacing was used on the 182 Trophy, 182 Cup, and the 182 models with the Cup Pack. We supply these dampers fitted with pillowball top mounts

This is a front coilover setup with solid top mounts. For customers wanting both the front and rear suspension setup replaced should purchase the full DS series coilover set

The BC Racing DS Series coilovers are a versatile coilover that is able to cope well both with fast road and track usage. DS Series coilovers are 1 way adjustable monotube dampers with 30 clicks of adjustment range. These BC Racing coilovers fit the Renault Clio RS models from 1999–2005. The standard setup the for Renault Clio is a 4kg/mm front spring (224lb/in), but we can provide these dampers with various spring rates.

We are the only retailer for BC Racing selling these Renault Clio RS coilovers with BC Racing adjustable top mounts. Like the AST suspension and KAM Racing adjustable top mounts, these Renault Clio solid top mounts have an offset pillow ball mount which can be rotated to adjust camber and caster angle. The BC Racing solid top mounts also help reduce uncontrolled suspension movement by removing the noise dampening rubber from the top of the strut. Solid top mounts give more precision to the steering and sharper handling.

To keep your BC Racing DS coilovers looking like new we recommend using a anti-rust barrier spray such as ACF-50

  • 30 way adjustable damping - combined rebound and compression
  • Height adjustment via bottom mount to retain full damper travel
  • Large Diameter Monotube Damper Body (Nitrogen Filled)
  • Adjustable spring platform for corner weighting
  • Integrated bearing in top hat, improving steering feel
  • Custom Spring rates * made to order on request
  • Digresive Valves

The DS series is the latest evolution of the DR Series. BC Racing's DS Series Coilover system is built with Digressive Valving as well as offering the same great benefits of the BR Series models. It is considered a perfect choice for those who are looking for track orientated coilovers for occasional track days. The digressive valving offers more stability and enhances cornering ability at low shaft speed which gives you a different ride feel from the conventional linear valving.

BC Racing DS Series Features

Digressive Valving

The digressive valving offers more stability and enhances cornering ability at low shaft speed which gives you a different ride feel from the conventional linear valving

46mm diameter pistons / 53mm diameter damper body

The BC Racing DS series coilovers are similar to the V1 series coilover kits but use a larger 46mm diameter piston in a 53mm diameter damper body to maximise the oil capacity. the larger outer shafts also give additional strength enabling them to cope with higher side loads.

Rebound & Compression Damping Adjustment

BC Racing BR Coilovers have 30 clicks of rebound and compression damping adjustment allowing you to adjust the way your vehicle handles; fine tuning the front and rear balance to suit different track and race disciplines.

Standard Features of all BC Racing Coilovers

Ride Height Adjustment

BC Racing Coilovers alter ride height using an adjustable bottom mount. As ride height is set by this bottom mount rather than the spring platform your BC Racing Coilover retains full damper travel no matter what your ride height. This also allows the BC Racing Coilover spring pre-load to be set independently.

Nitrogen pressurised Monotube Coilovers

The BC Racing coilover kits use Nitrogen pressurised Monotube dampers with a large diameter pistons and bodies. Mono-tube pistons are much larger than twin-tube coilover dampers. This allows it to be more sensitive to small suspension movements. The larger outer shafts are stronger so they cope with higher side loads. These increased lateral loads occur when stick tyres are used or when a car may go airborne over crests in the road at high speed. Nitrogen pressurised Monotube coilover dampers give a more consistent damping performance and do not suffer from aeration or performance fade in comparison to a twin tube BC Racing Suspensiondamper design.

Corner weight adjustment

The lower spring platforms of the BC Racing coilovers are adjustable. This allows the car to be set up for corner weighting to achieve perfect balance and ensures that maximum tyre efficiency is achieved.

The car needs to be placing equal weight on each tyre on an axle so both front tyres need to be taking equal loading as do both rears. This makes sure that both tyres are doing their equal share of work when cornering which increases overall grip, maximises corner speed and reduces lap times.

Corrosion protection

The BC Racing Coilover damper units are black chromed steel to give superb durability against the weather and road salt in winter. The aluminium components are anodised and the steel lower mounts go through an electrocoating process followed by powder coating. To keep them looking like new we recommend using a anti-rust barrier spray such as ACF-50

Top mounts included on most kits

Many of the BC Racing coilover kits come with complete with replacement top mounts. These BC Racing top mounts are either rose jointed (pillowball) top mounts or rubber top mounts. The anodised alloy top mounts eliminate any flex or play associated with the standard rubber top mounts, improving response and handling. In addition some of the BC Racing coilover kits also allow for camber / castor adjustment through the solid top mounts to give additional tuning flexibility.

Optional BC Racing Damping Extenders

The BC Racing coilover kits are available to be purchased with rear damping extender cables. If chosen these allow you to adjust the 30 way damping from a more convenient position on the car. Three lengths are available and these can be cut down to size.

Custom spring rates at no extra cost

Kam Racing are able to supply the BC Racing coilover kits with spring rates of your choice at no extra cost. Simply provide the specs you require in the order comments and we will arrange this for you..
