I still to this day have $1000 worth of suspension sitting in a box in my garage because I can't sell it and don't want to deal with GC to have it fixed for resale.
I went ahead and got the KW V3 installed and haven't looked back. No noise, no falling apart, alignment is in check even though I am on stock top hats and am set very low, and rides very well for a slammed car.

All in all, I do not miss the EDC controls; the KWs make up for it and then some, especially when comparing to the Ground Control sleeve system.

Hope this helps

I'm reading more and more about people trading their sleeve kits for KW V3s
