im confused now? so are they good or no? and would i have to by shocks to go with them? (**Most people that have had multiple setups will recommend to use H&Rs with Koni reds; And will not recommend Ground Controls anymore do to cleaning, poor adjuster design, and the kit using short eibach springs.) so the ground controls i was lookin at are not good? thanks for any help..ima dummy to all this.

the GC is a decent kit, the adjuster is poor, but works. you can use any shocks with them, however if you have koni, you need a special adjuster to fit them, eitherway, GCw/koni is a great combo if you want adjustablity and a very low stance, the actual springs they use are made by eibach and they are best part of the kit becuase they are very good quality springs, imo.

ground control are good, not the best but just about as close as we can get to real coil-overs. since i actually use them on my car and have had excellent experince with them, aside from over tightening the screw on the adjuster. i'd recommend them, and if you want to go as low as possible (with the GC) i'd recommend Koni's.

Please stay out of all my threads and ones you have no info to present and no credibility to present it with. You may want to see the first page again.

nice, where those the ones that where for sale on the forum like 6months ago from japan? or are these different? I think they weren't mentioned in the thread because you might actually have like the only set of those around and there is no info on it really

Yes this was the set that was on eBay and briefly mentioned on the forums. I haven't had a chance to actually go call up Mugen in Japan and ask them actual specs about the setup but from the seller I got the following specs (which in turn he said he got form the original owner of the car):

Dampening Force 0.3/sec stretch/decompress
Hard Setting- F=65/150kg----R=118/65kg
Medium Setting- F=215/135kg---- R=98/60kg
Soft Setting- F=162/113kg----- R=67/51kg
Spring rate- F=3.3kg/mm----- R=2.0kg/mm

Not sure how that translates but my ass-o-meter says:
Soft: stock, or pretty close to it
Medium: about as stiff as most factory-tuned 'sport' editions of cars
Hard: definitely noticeable
