eibach or frpp sway bars??

I was planning on thr FRPP kit, but just found a killer deal on the eibach swaybar set. Anybody have opinions on one vs the other?

Is anybody running the eibach bars with a mostly stock suspension?

Anybody?

FRPP Kit

I rented a Shelby which has the FRPP Handling Pack. I thought is was perfect. Firm ride, very flat cornering, stable on highway. I'm thinking of getting it for my '06. I would keep the 17" rims though. it might get too harsh with anything bigger.

To the best of my knowledge the FRPP & Eibach are exactly the same. I got the FRPP ones and they came with Eibach directions, Eibach grease and Eibach mounts for the rear.

You can see the project at Grassroots Motorsports

excellent. I stumbled on a reputable internet source selling the eibach set for $100 less than the FRPP. Now I need to double check all the details, and see if I can get on it while they're still offering.

I got my FRPP's from Summit for $388.95 plus a handling fee of $6 and installed myself. The directions and parts all had Eibach's name on them. All other suspension parts are stock on my 06 GT. It made a big difference in cornering. Good mod IMO.

I got mine from autoanything for less than 290 shipped to me, they had a 20% off sale during that week. The bars came in an eibach box, and stamped eiabach. But also I had one main issue with the rear making some squeaking noise at low speeds. see under V6 forums.
