don't worry about the coils , ground controls are the best,,,
worry about your shocks as they will take the *** kicking ,,,
I have the mazdaspeed shocks and after dishing out 700 bucks for them I refuse to use coilovers again ....
that is just my 2 cents

do the shocks lower the car also? cause isn't the point of coil overs to lower the car a little?

but if the ground control coilovers are put together with the mazdaspeed shocks, i think they would complement eachotehr well

dang the jspec parts are exspensive. I mean for the price of just the side skrits I could buy a whole body kit for this car with an extra 150 dollars!!! OH well its still tight... ummm Is there any where else that sales that grill. Cuase I mean I like that grill but I don't like it for 2bills...now that is kinda up there. Well thanks a lot.... Oh yea do you know where I can find guage pods that will fit on the side pillar????

back on topic...

biknman has the ground controls on mazdaspeed shocks, and he says it does compliment each other very well.
