H&R Cup Question

As far as the control arms, I've heard good things about all those you mentioned, but Meyle seems to be a preferred upgrade brand on the zhp forum I'm on. I can't speak to bavlar's issue but that is a bummer. I replaced mine with OEM (ZHP), but I'm not sure what size.
Just wondering where you scored your Cup kit and for how much? I'm lookin at getting it from HPF, but I've seen it on Tirerack for about $150 cheaper. Did you install yourself or take it to someone? I don't want the race springs...looking at the sport because I like it the way it is. Thanks in advance for your response!
