I went with the super pro... atleast they look nice. No word on performance as my car is out of commission. LOL

I don't like that the SuperPro bushing is still that...a bushing. I would prefer something hard mounted (pillow ball) which really only leaves me with Perrin... The car is not a daily, so NVH be damned.

I used to drive a car with KW Var 2's so I know what you mean on the NVH. I would try escalating the issue within Whiteline, if you can. You have all the documentation/pics you need to prove a quality break down somewhere down the line.

I love all my SuperPro stuff...never had any fitment or quality issues either. I do understand the want for a hard mount though.

I pressed the ALK in with a socket that may have had a sharp edge... But, whatever. No damage and it's not visible.

Aside from the anti-seize and bushing grease that is everywhere, I'm happy with how the front end turned out. Went with POR15 instead of the eastwood chassis paint that I used in the rear. I'm 100% rust free (excl. rotors) and it'll stay that way for a long time.

VooDoo13 rear LCAs showed up, and am in the process of painting them. Gorgeous pieces of work.

Got the glue cleaned off, but my drill bits are no match for the spot welds...going to have to buy some better tools.

Are you just resealing it? Seam welding?
