I'm not going with the GC setup as I am satisfied enough with my setup. When my shocks blow, that's when I'll be going coilovers but until then I am happy.

It feels unsafe only on roads that are not very smooth. When you hit a dip or a bump on the freeway at speeds I'd say even over 80 it definitely gives you the weird stomach feeling (oh shit feeling) with the H&R's, and you can feel something is off. Feels like the springs are too stiff and there is not enough travel for the shocks.

The Eibachs do not give this feeling. Sure you feel the road more than OEM but in no way does it ever feel "wrong" or mismatched.
