They are slightly stiffer and at first I thought they were just past my preference level. After a few weeks I have gotten used to them and have decided that they are a perfectly fine alternative to the stock struts.
I was really careful to choose a balanced compromise between daily driver comfort and a step up in performance. I still think that the Eibach/stock strut combo is my favorite but the gr2s won't upset you if you want the same thing as me.
That's interesting. I have Koni's with eibach springs and while I like being able to adjust the struts, realistically I leave them 99% of the time and wish I had a bit softer ride.
