BMR VS Steeda springs and sways

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?

BMR is close by me, so I went over to their site and talked to Kelly (their Mustang guy) first hand. I didn't talk about a comparison between Steeda and BMR, but both are high quality. You definitely can't go wrong with either. That being said, I took a ride in a buddies 14 with a full BMR Suspension kit, and it felt like a completely different car than stock. They say (BMR) that a 15 GT with their springs and sway bars will run laps around a boss 302. I ended up getting their cradle lockout kit and sway bars. Haven't installed them yet though....

That cradle lockout kit looks interesting.

It won't completely eliminate wheel hop on its own, but it does a good job of minimizing it.
