In the market for some Coilovers

I needed some opinions on some coilovers and I could not really find any information online about them. The coilovers I am looking at are the SR Performance V2 from american muscle. From its previous version, it has 16 way adjustable damping and the quality looks a bit better as well. Im not an expert on spring rates but these are rated at 447lbs Front Spring Rate; 331 lbs Rear Spring Rate, which seem a bit high to me. I was also looking at some eibach pro street but the price is a bit high. I have SR lowering springs right now and don't have any problems with them except an occasional clunk from the front when braking. Does anyone have the SR coilovers? How do they ride? and are there any noises or faults in the quality. Thanks for any feedback!

I just got the V2 from SR. Pretty happy with them. And the car looks bad ***. Right now I have the dampening set to stiff so the ride is pretty good. Click image for larger version

Let me give you my Eibach experience and you can decide if you want to use your hard earned money to put them on. My Eibach Pro Street S coil overs have 9k miles on them as of right now. The front driver side decided to leak a few thousand miles after they were installed and it was a cluster FU** trying to get Eibach to warranty them and in the end they didn't do anything but charge me to fix a shock that was just over 1 year old. Not long after the driver side was redone the other side is leaking but not as bad. I don't road race, I don't abuse my car, I have super low miles on my car (13k) for being a 2012, I live in CA with zero rust or corrosion problems, car never sees rain and is parked in the garage 100% of the time.
I don't want to blame suspension noise on the coil overs but I've had plenty of that too and that was worked out for the most part with adding other aftermarket parts. If I were to do it again I would NEVER buy Eibach again in my life nor will I tell a friend to buy Eibach. Im sure im one of the rare cases to have 2 leaking dampers but here I am. I will post the link to my issue and the proses it took to just fix my damper threw Eibach. Customer service was a joke with a little price gouging/lies.

Thank you for sharing ur problems with them! Kind of changes my mind about the eibach, I'd rather replace a $800 system if it breaks then replace a$1300 one. Not that many people have had the SR so I'm hoping someone with some miles on them can give there experience.

Those spring rates are meant for racing, not really street stuff.
