ride comfort: if stock is 7, this setup is probably 6 for "comfort", in that my girlfriend doesn't like it as much.
handling: if stock is 7, this setup on the street is an 8, and a 9 for autocross use/settings.
The autocross settings are very unstreetable, but totally transform the car for that use. It's certainly not as good as a coilover setup, but it's stock-class legal, and quite a bit better for autocross. Reduces body roll significantly, and helps facilitate weight transfer to the rear, resulting in less inside rear tire spin and more grip.
