Im curious as well. Im looking for a cheap way to lower my car and Megans just might do it for me, otherwise, I'll be going with Ground Control.

Ill post pics up when the sun comes out, but overall the ride quality is good, not too soft and not too hard. Dont have to worry bout seed bumps or drive ways. No bump steer or unwanted bouncing like some springs. Overall Im impressed by it, a must buy for those wanting a good stance and ride quality. 10/10

Edit: ride quality is still a bit stiff but tolerable

Jus some pics before the springs and struts settle a bit. Still room for bigger rims... future plans :wiggle:

there essentially the same thing: excel g's are the inserts for the front, gr2's are the entire strut itself.

Actually they are exactly the same. The Excel G is the same as the GR2 but also marketed outside the US.
