Default Suspension Dilemma

I'm currently in a big suspension dilemma.

FM V-Maxx or Tein Basis (Via 949)? I've been searching for the past few days trying to decide which to get. All I can really find is crap from and CR - and I'll make decisions based on CR posts slightly after the Mayan apocalypse really happens.

bottom line you're deciding between a name brand with not so great spring rates vs no name brand with great spring rates

also you never stated your goals. fail

As it happens I will have a used set of Tein Flex available in the near future. About 8k street miles, 6 track days. 9/6 rates with unused 7 front springs also. PM me if interested. I don't have a hard timeline other than soon. The car will be going into the garage this weekend after I go through DEQ Th or Friday.

Edit: EDFC controller also. Not necessary but incredibly convenient.

Edit2: I will also have an available NB sport front sway, FM front sway, and NB rear sway.
