I have both megans and BC's and they lower the car the same amount. You can get shorter shock inserts for the BC's to lower them more but its about 170 USD per side and you will need a dealer to order them for you. Worth it if you want more low. Or you could get the Shock shortened . What size wheels and offset are you running?

My boy was telling me about shorter coils and and the regular ones. I wouldent know how low it is until i install them. I got enkei 92s 15x7 0 offset and gonna get 195 55 or 50 tires. I would probly be adding spacers to get a flushed fitment.

Mean, Should have no issues with clearance between the wheel and the Steering arm with that offset on your wheels. My 15 x 8.5 hit the knuckle... nothing a 25mm spacer cant fix. And it helps the stance.

I have no worry about clearance. Just firmet. I origanly wanted somthing 15x8,8.5,9 -offset range.something old school style like ssr mesh, epsolin, or equip03, but those are either hard to get or alot of $$$$. And i dident want to trow random modern wheels on. Just so happen my boy had the 92s for sale i was a bit ify on the size but it was rare, oldschool, decent size lip and in my budget. So it will work for now. The scapers like you said would just be for the right stance.

The rears are super adjustable and could go super low, its the fronts that stop short. Wht i found out the hard way is this: when you cut your stock spindle, however much of te strut tube you leave will block the strut tube from lowering farther than that piece sits up in the coilover strut tube. So when i did it i read to leave 2 inches on my stock strut tube, i welded everything up and lowered te coilovers all the way and was not happy with the lowness, so i cut into the coilover tube and starte over (thank God i had an extra set of stock strut tubes) and this time i cute them about 3/4in and that gave me an inch and a quatrr of more low, youcould probably get away with half inch you just have to make sure you weld the spindle on straight. Once its welded on it shouldnt matter how much is inside the strut tube.

Hope that all makes sence. I am all the way maxed out on the fronts with 15x8 0 offset and an inch spacer and hardly any preload on the springs. Front rides nice, i need to adjust the back a little more with some more preload to stiffen it up a bit more, right now its too soft fo my taste. But the back can be super slammed if i wanted it, just cant match the height up front.

awesome that you posted this. now it raises a question if all coil over kits are like this. is it only weld in kits available for the Cressida market or does bc and megan kits opt for fully built for front and rear.

I got a set of those bc racing coils too, any chace you could post pic of the rears installed? When I did mine I put the adjusters on top but had to grind down the cone shape bump stop so it would fit all the way up. I posted the picture somewhere and someone said I did it upside down. Not sure how the other way would have been possible though, it wouldn't have fit at all.
