ground control coilovers?
What is the word on the ground control coilovers? Are they any good? How is the ride? Bouncy? I have eibach sportlines right now so how much difference would the ride be?

i have ground control coilovers and i really like them. they don't bounce as if you were to cut your springs. it's just a residual bounce from the road. these are great coilovers thumbsup

How's the ride on the tein? Bumpy, stiff, bouncy? I have sportlines right now and i think those are a little to stiffy for me. So if anyone has any other recommendations that would be good.

with ground controls, you will need aftermarket shocks. The ride is alright and isnt really bouncy at all. But you will know when there are bad roads and bumps on the ground.

What has better ride quality--Coilovers that are bouncy or lowering springs w/ upgraded shocks that are bumpy?
