    Swift vs RCE Regular Guy Blacks

    Okay, after taking off the Eibach Pro springs I had on I now need opinions of the two. Which one is more comfortable and less jarring? And which one is more forgiving on the OEM struts?
    The Eibachs were a nightmare, every bump was jarring and I was bouncing all over the place on dips.
    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Neither will be more forgiving...they are both going to be stiffer spring rates than OEM and the Eibachs you had. So you may get less bouncing around, but you're going to have a lot stiffer of a ride. In order for the springs to work correctly, you'll need properly matched struts to work with them.

    I used to be on this stock strut bandwagon too. I installed the Swift Sport springs on my 2011 sedan. Rides great, but was slightly bouncy. Well wouldn't you know both front struts started leaking shortly after. Went with the Koni's in front and rear and let me tell you, worth every cent that they cost. Completely changed the car and it rides much sportier and predictable. My vote goes for Swift Sport (w/ Koni struts).
