Default BC BR Extreme Low Coilovers vs KSport Kontrol Pro Coilovers

I'm curious as to some input on which set is "better". I'm running a fairly aggressive set of wheels currently and want to introduce my car to the ground. I don't want to go super crazy but it's nice to have the option for shows and whatnot. The thing that has me intrigued about the BC's is the custom spring rates (and the fact that everyone seems to run them). I figured I could go with a higher rate and get less bottoming out/rubbing. Even though I don't know what rate I would go with. I look forward to some advice. Thanks!

If there's a preferred vendor I'd also like to know. I prefer to keep my money in the community.

Adjusting the height of your car is gonna fuck up your alignment every time you do it, so you might want to keep that in mind before you show drop it.

Firestone sells a lifetime alignment package and a good friend has a shop with an alignment machine so I'm not terribly concerned about that. I'm not going to be going to shows a lot either. Just using that as an option.

I run ksport coils at the moment, I like the drop they provide and haven't had any problems but even at a reasonable drop they're still pretty rough even on the softest adjustment.

No worries. My "stance" is slightly more aggressive than EVO wheels. Not exactly hardcore. Nor do they require some demon camber or silly shit like that. I'm simply wanting the right parts for the application, while trying to keep my money in the community.

I'm well aware of the dickbags that just like to talk shit. I'm used to those elitists from other communities. Not so much from the same one though.

GB: Sonic Tuning Coilovers!!!
I don't really like the idea of running a first run production. IMHO, it always seems like there are small kinks to be worked out and I'd like for the installation to be one and done.
