Well that was 3 years ago, there are more options now, the gc were ok, but I'm sure there's something better for your money. I'd look around

Tremec TKO ftw



Sounds like your having a great day Brad!

What shocks are you going to go with after your PSS9's?
JRZ or Moton. I'm only buying one more suspension so I'm doing it right this time.

GC uses Koni shocks but their good. AST is way better but like Andy said not so cost effective. It depends on what you want. Low stance, track worthy, or track dedicated.

If you want stance I'd say buy what ever is cheap. If you want stance and handling the there's TC Kline, GC, and KW. All are very nice. If you want track then JRZ, Moton, or AST.

Yea i'm going for slammed while retaining handling. So GC looks good. I'll probably go all solid bushings throughout as well. Can you say bone jarring ride?

I was gonna get their advanced design stuff before I decided to just save up and wait for something race ready. They are good and for the money there isn't anyone that can compare.

I did my headers when it was about 15F and there was snow on the ground at one point.
