BGRS BRZ GT86 Suspension Kit Guide

BGRS Suspension Kit Guide for the ZN6 and ZN8

Welcome to the Battle Garage Racing Service Suspension Kit Guide for ZN6/ZN8 enthusiasts. Navigate through our comprehensive guide to discover the perfect components that complement one another, such as sway bars, end links, dampers, and more, enhancing your vehicle's handling for an elevated driving experience.

Our carefully curated suspension kits are designed to cater to various driving personalities, ensuring that you find the ideal setup for your preferences. Whether you identify as a Casual Driver, Canyon Driver, or have a passion for High-Performance Driving Events (HPDE), we've categorized our kits accordingly.

For those seeking a bit more edge, we've introduced the Casual+, Canyon+, and HPDE+ tiers, delivering that extra performance boost without requiring a leap to the next level.

  • Casual: Recommended for Daily Drivers and Occasional Canyon Runners

    These kits are ideal for enthusiasts who primarily use their vehicles for daily commuting and occasionally enjoy spirited drives through the canyons.

  • Canyon: Recommended for Frequent Canyon Runners

    If you're a frequent canyon runner, our Canyon Kits are tailor-made for your needs.

  • HPDE (High-Performance Driving Events): Recommended for Racing Enthusiasts with Modified Engines

    Our HPDE Kits are specially crafted for dedicated racing enthusiasts who participate in competitive racing series.

ZN6/ZN8 Casual Suspension Kit:

  • If you prefer a factory ride height but want feels more planted than stock, our Casual Suspension Kit might be for you! We find that the OEM dampers (except for possibly the PP Sachs) tend to have a lot of lag as well as exhibit some harshness that is common in twin tube dampers. We recommend Bilstein Monotube dampers which retain similar stroke to OEM dampers, but have classic Bilstein digressive valving, resulting in more compliance and body control. We recommend SPC Camber Bolts as well so that you can more easily dial out some understeer, running up to -2 degrees of camber on the road.

ZN6 Casual+ Suspension Kit:

  • Our Casual+ Suspension Package includes the same great Bilstein B6 dampers, but allows for a bit lower ride height with the RS-R lowering springs. When the ZN6/ZN8 is lowered much, the rear camber will become excessive, so we recommend SPC adjustable lower control arms to reduce the rear negative camber. Finally, we recommend only upgrading the front sway bar to one of moderate stiffness, as we have found this reduces body roll but maximizes corner exit grip on tighter turns. The front sway bar upgrade is optional but recommended.

ZN6 Canyon Suspension Kit:

  • For drivers who are more comfortable with their car at the limit and wish to have adjustable ride height and shock damping, we recommend ordering a set of Annex custom coilovers. Annex Suspension builds each coilover suspension by hand to best suit the client's use case, focusing on body control while delivering superior ride comfort. We will help you complete a free consultation so that the damping and spring rates are optimized for the roads that you drive on, including biasing oversteer vs understeer based on your abilities as a driver. We still recommend a moderate front sway bar upgrade, and we always insist on correcting the rear camber gain when ever significantly lowering a ZN6.

ZN6 Canyon - Budget Flex Suspension Kit:

  • If budget is a concern, we can still offer Tein's excellent "Flex" line of coilovers. Tein Flex offer adjustable ride height and dampening, while providing good ride quality. These coilovers are "out of the box" and cannot be customized, but we feel they check a lot of boxes that we are looking for, all for a great price point.

ZN6 Canyon+ Suspension Kit:

  • We put this package together for drivers who really know their car's limits, and enjoy pushing their car on spirited drives. We recommend the same excellent Annex coilovers, but this time we would valve and spring them to a higher rates. We package a stiffer Perrin 19mm front sway bar, as well as Whiteline rear crossmember bushings to help keep the rear subframe in check without introducing too much more Noise Vibration and Harshness. The same SPC lower control arms are recommended to correct for excessive rear camber.

ZN8 Canyon Suspension Kit:

  • The ZN8 versions of our kits are similar in concept to the ZN6 kits, however, we recognize the greatly increased chassis stiffness of the new ZN8 generation cars and reflect that in the spring rates that we would advise you on when purchasing one of our kits. We will help you complete a free consultation so that the damping and spring rates are optimized for the roads that you drive on, including biasing oversteer vs understeer based on your abilities as a driver. We still recommend a moderate front sway bar upgrade, and we always insist on correcting the rear camber gain when ever significantly lowering a ZN8.

ZN6 HPDE Suspension Kit:

  • Congrats on planning for your first track day! HPDE (High Performance Driving Events) are an excellent way for you to explore you and your car's limits. We would recommend Annex coilovers that are custom sprung and valved for the tracks and tire compounds you plan to drive on. Perrin's 19mm front sway bar provides more stability then the smaller bars, and we still recommend Whiteline rear crossmember bushings to reduce the vagueness from the rear end.

ZN6 HPDE+ Suspension Kit:

  • Whoa, we see you! If you're chomping at the bit to put down some blistering times and force drivers to give you some point bys, this maybe the suspension package that you need. This time we recommend Annex's more track focused ClubSpec Pro coilovers, custom valved and sprung for your vehicle's weight and the tire compounds you intend to use. With the increased cornering loads, we would recommend SPL adjustable rear toe-arms for greater adjustability and stability due to less bushing deflection. Finally, higher speeds can cause the chassis to flex, reducing steering response, so we recommend bracing the front and rear of your car with Cusco strut tower bars. Ride quality will be firm, but should still be compliant enough for weekend drives.
