Quick BC coilover question

So I just installed my BC coilovers on my car. The fronts will go insanely low, but for some reason the backs I just cant seem to get very low. I have the backs as low as they possible will go and I still have a decent bit of tire gap back there.

Did I miss something with the install, or is this a common issue with these coilovers? I searched around but couldn't find any info.

I have an adjustable panhard bar (forget the brand) SR LCA's, Boss 302 rear sway bar as far as other suspension mods in the back.

Thanks in advance for any help

I thought about that, I bought the Ford racing ones though so it should be good.

I got in touch with BC, I guess there is an "extreme" version of the rears you can buy for $300 to get an extra 1" of low. This kit should have just came with these from the get go.

So w/o the extreme version you're stuck at stock height?

Its lower than stock height, but maybe like "'lowering springs" low, not coilover low if that makes any sense

Very nice! Those don't look like 18" AMR wheels? Signature needs updating
