    Default Coilover noob question

    Hi folks,

    I just installed my BC coils on my 2015 Mazda 3 gt. I got questions regarding my coils.

    - Whats the chance of blowing up the shocks?
    -How tight should I set my shocks at rear to avoid daily scrapes?
    - Whats the best place to do alignment in Scarborough/Markham area?

    Thanks a bunch folks!

    Blowing up the shocks - depends on how low you set the coils, how aggresive you drive, and the quality of roads. If you set ride height to lowest possible, shocks will wear faster. That said many people have gone years without issue.
    How tight to set the shocks - not sure, sometimes it is trial and error, depends on the look and function you want vs ride comfort.
    Best place for an alignment - in the East, I would probably go to Nextmod/APH in Markham. They have a nice alignment setup at the new location.
