Steeds vs BMR sways and springs

So I've read what I can find. Looks like both are high quality.

Springs: Steeda has an impressive 2 stage progressive spring (many progressives are variable progressive leading to unpredictability under typical road handling conditions). BMR is linear, lower than PP with similar / slightly firmer spring rates to the PP springs. BMR offers more impressive technical detail about manufacturing process and guarantees no sag for life.

Sways: Steeda has a manufacturing process to help prevent failure at ends of sways. BMR includes billet mounts and poly bushings with grease fittings, but their ends appear to be less stout than Steedas. Both are 3 way adjustable (via mounting holes).

I am not an engineer so a lot of the technical detail on manufacturing and steel quality is nebulous to me.

This is for a daily driver. Looking for comfort + predictable performance. Any thoughts?

Coyote6,

We have both progressive & linear springs here - 2015-2016 Mustang Lowering Springs | Steeda Autosports | Free Shipping!

Also, you can read this article here regarding our set-up in Mustang 360 ...
Quote:
We killed enough speed to cut in towards the apex, and the Steeda G-Trac suspension kept the Mustang flat and controlled. The front is modified from stock with a Steeda adjustable front sway bar with billet endlinks, progressive-rate sport springs, upper strut mount, Extreme G-Trac brace, and Steeda strut tower brace.
You can check out the reviews on our sway bar here - Steeda Mustang Front Sway Bar (2015-2016) | Free Shipping!

We have had tremendous success on & off the track with our suspension components. Steeda manufactured part, they are purchasing performance parts that have been designed, engineered, and manufactured under strict certification standards – ISO 9001:2008.

Our commitment is to make the highest quality parts & ensuring you, the customer, won't have any issues when our parts are installed on your vehicle - keeping your investment safe!

With that being said ... p.m. sent!

Best Regards,

TJ

While I cant comment on the BMR products, I did purchase the steeda adjustable front and rear sways, and I will say I was very impressed with the quality and stoutness of them, the bars, hardware and endlinks are extremely well made and finished. Easily the best quality aftermarket parts I have on the car. Performance is great too, noticed a significant improvement in handling. Some say they are over engineered and built, but when you have a 3400lb car going around a corner at full tilt, its good peace of mind. Hope this helps

I have road raced on a somewhat regular basis on progressive springs, ^^ that is not something you will need to worry about.

Honestly, i am partial to BMR parts because i run their LCAs / PHB and LCA brackets. I do not however, have their sway bars. Realistically though, looking at both kits, especially if you're just street driving, i imagine you will be very hard pressed to tell the difference.
