* Spring Rates: 148 lbs/in Front, 456 lbs/in Rear
* Improved Handling, Balance, and Control
* Reduced Body Roll
* Tubing on Coils to Reduce Coil Slap Noise
* Designed for the street or track

BMW 1 and 3-series Anti-Sway Bars:
http://www.cobbtuning.com/BMW-135-33...t-p/9b1250.htm

Seems like very mild suspension options to start with. I think those spring rates and swaybar rates would hardly be higher than stock.

Still, more options the better.

Nice find, though zzzzzzzzzzz .....

Another player in the game can't hurt the consumer's choices though.

The spring rates are stated in one of the tabs of the website page. Seem to be similar to sport suspension or Eibach. Not sure if they are linear or progressive.
