Coil-overs

I'm curious as to who has them and how you liked them. I'm looking to buy some this winter and just need some opinions.

I had them on my 02 gt and loved them, much better handling than shocks and springs. Plus the luxury of lowering or raising you're car is a big plus

Sleeve coil-overs have the removable shocks, like the Griggs racing and the Maximum Motorsports set-ups. Eibach and KW make the normal solid unit kind

Did they make a lot of noise going over bumps?

Ok. That's the number one concern I have right now with a sleeve set-up. I really like Maximum Motorsports products, but I'm a little iffy on bottoming out the shocks if I decide I wanna slam it.
