Ground Control and Koni"s

I was wondering if anyone has gc coilovers and koni shocks? And if so, what does the ride feel like.

I have gc and my konis are in the mail as we speak. So i can let you know in like a week or so, but a few members have that setup and they said the konis dramatically improved the ride and response.

$300 from ground control directly when they first came out. Try calling [email protected] 909-946-2409. He may be able to get you a better price. He has the best price for the konis.

Ground Controls can be bumpy. But it also depends on how much you lower your car. Good luck.

Sounds like an OK setup. As for me, Id rather wait for TOKICOS. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

Had my GC's for about 5 months, and my Koni's for almost 3. Great ride quality. Both my front and rear wheels(stock) are tucked about 1/4", and I don't have any issues with bottoming out. No bounciness, no loss of control at speed over bumps. If you're wondering why I still have stock wheels, it's cause I've had my new wheels on order from SSR(Japan) since November. I think they may be coming in around March 11th, finally.

I would have gone with Tokico's, if they ever decide to make a set for our cars. Went with the Koni's, lifetime warranty, more damping poundage that the Tokico's will have, Koni's are the same rate throughout their entire power stroke(good for lowering) and the most important factor that made me choose them, they are available now.
