Unless you can find some good reputable reviews of those springs, I'd go the Eibachs.

sooooo ive read some customer reviews on these GSF springs and it turns out they're made by Lesjofors which is a Sedish brand. All reviews are positive so i might give them a crack unless i can find some eibachs for around the same price.
