Id love something with caster adjustment up front independent from camber. AFAIK Ground Control uppers are the only ones that have this.

If you do Ground Control you might as well do some custom suspension then..

or just wait on everything and motorboat my way around the track for now :)

PBM coilies have the camber and caster setting combined, not sure if I am such a big fan. If nothing else at least you can get loads of positive caster hahaha

Get some pants with 8/6 spring rates.
I have some agx/ ground control, don't even know the spring rates and my car straight rips ass through a corner. And my rear shocks are blown because the sleeves are at max low lol.

they are on the soft side for coilovers, i prefer a stiffer ride. but you could always throw some stiffer (swift?) springs on 'em and rock that, only downfall is that coilovers should (i would hope at least) come valved to perform well with their respective springs.

if you're getting them for like $500, then at least you're a step up from getting just shocks and springs (you'll at least have ride height and camber plate adjustability), any higher than that and i'd just save for stiffer coils.. eh i'd prolly just save for stiffer coils in either case.

not sure about the flex but my HE's are ancient and still pretty solid. fairly sure mine are 9/7 and they're not terribly stiff but work well both for drifting and on the roadcourse.
