Along these same lines, does anyone have any experience with the Top Gun Customz progressive rate coils? I'm trying to decide between these and the Bilsteins. When you add up total cost of coils, front 5100s, and the castor shims, the TCG kit is ~$100 or so more. Is it worth it?

Tpo Gun sell's Pure Performance products rebadged as their's, this is more than likely a Pure Performance spring..you would need to check with them

You will need Coils, Castor shims, adj track bar, rear blocks and u bolts plus 4 shocks.
