How do you compare CKS coilovers vs BC Racing?

Hi Guys
I tried to search for CKS vs BC and all I could find was feedback CKS from m5 and other 5 series owners, especially with Swift springs. The BC racing seems to be more popular or at least has the most feedback over the internet.

Does anyone you know how CKS coils compare to BC racing, with or without Swift springs?

The price point seems to be about $500 apart on average so wonder what the $500 means

Thx

I've had CKS Coilovers before. Between BC and CKS I would stick with CKS. They have excellent customer service and stand behind their products. Let me know if youre interested in the CKS coilovers. I can refer you to a vendor on the forums that is a distributor for them

I will vouch for CKS Coilover Customer Service. I have no experience with BC but I am telling you what experience I have and CKS (JOHN - Owner) is a really nice guy. Worked with me going out of his way after I had purchased the product. I am not a vendor nor any way affiliated with John (Corner Konnection Systems)
Their product are very very nice.

I mean, which coilover company does that ????
