I have no Financial Interest in Ground Control nor do I receive ANYTHING for endorsing Their Products!

Having performed numerous Suspension Installs using Products ranging from Bilstein PSS9s to H&Rs (various Levels) to KW to TCK to Ground Control and Others, I can and WILL emphatically state the there is NO better Suspension on the Market period and especially if Cost is a Factor!

* ALL GC Parts are beautifully designed, machined, and executed - PERFECT.

* ALL GC Parts are functional as well as beautiful

* GC provides IMMEDIATE Customer Service and replacements where required

* Even nonGC Manufactured Items (e.g., Konis) are INTEGRATED into a compatable System

* H&R and Bilstein has represented NOTHING but trouble on every Install I have performed or had to undo. The designs either have led to failure or production quality has been very lacking. In ALL cases either I or the Customer has had to wait Weeks for replacements after tracking down the Distributor or Retailer.

* TC Kline's stuff IS well conceived and executed but I prefer GC Customer Service to TCKs - NOT that It's bad, just slightly slower.

* Penske, Moton, Ohlins and Others are also make quality Pieces but Tech Support starts at roughly $150/Hr and Shocks alone generally run @ $5.000+ for Their good Stuff

Pay now or pay later but eventually You'll switch to GC once You know the Facts and get some Experience.

Not trying to dis AnyBody but I have seen so many Customers throw away Money and get Crap that It disgusts Me!!!

For My part, unless the Customer leaves Me completely out of the Loop, I won't work with AnyOne but GC - and in most cases, even then am NOT interested in getting involved. I want My People to be safe and satisfied!

You would NOT believe the CRAP I've seen! Can't speak to Your experience with the Other Products - just Mine.

dan's points seem pretty reasonable to me and he surely has more experience with suspensions than most around here.

seems like you're letting your personal selection of parts influence your judgment.

I respect all of your philosophies and methodoligies unlike some who simply have a blind allegiance for their own interests.<br>

Haven't tried other components, but after perusing this forum extensively, and after talking with those who have gone before me down the suspension mod path, I was impressed with the reviews of the GC stuff. Now that I've done the install, and tested the results (on the street and on the track), I'm sold!

We were down in Spartenburg earlier this month for the BMW CCA event at the Performance Center. There we go to drive new M-3's on a variety of short courses. I have to say, I missed my tauter suspension with quicker turn-in and flatter cornering.

Just remember - if you do the mods, do the research! There are a lot of ways to screw up an excellent stock suspension without really trying.

Current setup:
Front and rear swaybars
Coilovers with double-adjustable Konis (front) and single adjustable (rear)
7" Eibach Springs
Camber plates
