I watched in slow mo...and i think either stiffen right up or new spring rates...strange as dialed in on 13/4 this year on tyre combo and felt real good only difference being ambiet temps..poss shock oil thinned out in heat...no idea what the bc coilover springs rates are tbh..Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
