      Ok you got me! It is still almost double the price. I'm not trying to hate but some people can't take criticism. I would rather run H&R race than some random off brand coils. If I can score a set of GC's for less than 1k I would jump on it. Once again the money invested doesn't return equal performance. If you got stock sway bars please stfu

          Its so true, I have had so many people sit there and brag about how badass their suspension is, and when asked what size sway bars. they reply stock.

            If you suspension is stiff enough you don't hardly need sway bars. I might even remove the rear one for a little more traction.

              You are not hitting corners fast enough then.

                    You mad bro? Just said price per performance isn't very balanced. My suspension handles great and I hand selected and installed every component.

                    Am I a suspension engineer? No
                    Are you a suspension engineer? No
                    Does my car handle good? Yes
                    Better than yours? Who cares
                    As good as yours? Probably

                    Seriously though 1500 dollars? I doubt GC are 1200 dollars better than H&R Race
                    lol, not mad at all

                    Feel free to compare all you like, I will agree with you that H&R and Konis/Billies will be better than cheapass coils.

                    All in all it depends on what you want to do, but for daily driving of course there's nothing wrong with H&R's.

                    Correct; swaybars are for tuning whatever suspension you have. Not every driver will want or need bigger swaybars to get the car to drive how they want it to.

                      Word, If I had a S50 and huge brakes and tracked my car often I would be all over GC's. I still want them some day but I could get another E30 for the same price :)

                      If you put-put around town and don't do any aggressive driving I agree. For people who enjoy aggressive driving large sway bars are a must IMO
