Got the kit back today.

Kit includes brand new heim joints on end links, new rear perch reinforcements, new bump stops, new washers and hardware, and new/refreshed torrington bearings.

It's pretty much a new kit at this point.

They offer different choices for spring rate, right? Do you know which this is?

Yep- 650F/440R

Considered the aggressive or "middle" option.

Interested, but unsure of the completeness of the set. Are these now complete, and asking $850, or are parts still missing. I do not see the end links in your pictures, and unsure if other parts are not included.

Thanks.

How much stiffer are these than Eibach springs I currently have? I assume this works with EDC... but is it noticable difference between comfort and sport?

Thanks

Well, can't comment but you could probably compare them with these being 650/440.

There's definitely still a good difference between the 3 settings of EDC. More so on the track or really bumpy pavement. According to Jay from GC, you feel the EDC less because the car isn't moving as much as with the stock soft springs.

I think having the adjustable camber is one of the biggest selling points with the kit and is really the bulk of the price.
