They are crap. Don't get them. The ride is terribly rough. I just bought them for cheap with the shocks & struts from a local last year before looking into anything.

Don't forget Tim that the GR2 struts are not much better than the orginal stock struts. They definitely are not meant to handle a 2" drop spring very well lol.

Well they're much better than my old stock ones. Both rears were practically shot and the fronts were rough. I lost a lot of clunking since replacing them.

That's cuz your stickers were old and worn out lol. I meant GR2 compared to new OEM :)

That's ok, my car gets kinda bouncy/floaty on dips and stuff especially at freeway speeds cuz mine are definitely worn the frack out. Of course I do have an KYB AGX suspension with eibach prokit springs I need to install.

Alright that's what i've heard. I'm looking into Megan Racing springs now. It all takes money lol. Also what's a good set of struts? Is there a decent set that won't rape my bank account?

Around $400 for complete new. Check eBay and Amazon. You can also buy them individually so you aren't stuck having to buy all at once. Iirc rears average around $65-$75 each and the fronts average $120-$135 each when buying them separately.
