FRPP vs Eibach suspension kit

Lots of posts about the FRPP package but I couldn't find a comparison between these 2 kits. Anyone have an opinion of one over the other? Car is a daily driver that I want to improve basic handling and appearance.

I had the Ford Racing V6 Handling kit on my car and I liked it except some female passengers don't like how this kit follows every dip in the road. It gives them a feeling of sea sickness. The ride is not hard at all, it just reacts to everything. So as an experiment, I recently went back to the stock shocks but with these Eibach Springs Eibach Pro-Kit Mustang Springs 35125.140 (11-14 GT, V6, BOSS) - Free Shipping 35125.140 but keep the Ford Racing Sway bars. I prefer the Ford Racing setup for the race track for sure. Not decided on what I prefer for the street but I'm leaning towards keeping the Eibach springs with stock shocks. At least for now. Unfortunately, I put my Winter tires and wheels on at the same time as changing to the Eibach Springs and the winter tires tend to produce understeer compared to my summer tires and wheels so I'll wait until I change back to see how the car feels.

After you said that I looked around a little and may just go with this combination. I have coil overs on my '69 and really like them. I also like the ability to adjust the ride height to the way I want. What do you all think of these choices? There are more advanced coil overs, but I don't want to end up with too harsh of a ride.

im in the same boat! I was originally thinking of getting the pro-system-plus, steeda panhard, gt500 mounts, boss 302 strut tower brace, and the camber bolts. id like the rear of the lowering springs to drop more, so im really just gonna test out the pro springs, if im not satisfied then ill sell them and switch to sports.

but then i saw the price of the street coil overs, and i could get the drop however i want!! my only confusion is if i get the coil overs, what else do i need? and can i install it myself?
i was planning on installing myself with maybe help from a few buddies

Well, as luck and timing would have it everything changed this weekend with all the specials. I ended up buying a GT500KR package from Brenspeed and the Boss 302 strut tower brace from CJs. Now I'm watching Stillen and AM to see what happens on sway bars and exhaust. Once I have those items I'll slow down and start working on control arms and such.
