PROS: Warranty and reputable brand.

CONS: Cost

The only fault I find in them is the cost. I know they go for over $220 plus shipping (I got lucky and found some for about $200 shipped. I have had them on my car for nearly a year now...07 LS with FE1 struts and shocks.

I have to say that even with the stock steelies and Conti's these are pretty nice handling. I upgraded to a 205/60 15 tire and now that I can grip the road, I can tell you I am able to push the car through turns better than before (able to really see what is possible with the springs). The ride isn't harsh at all...a little firmer than stock springs, but to me, it rides very nice. I would recommend getting FE5 SS/SC or SS/TC struts/shocks or aftermarket if you can afford it. They should handle like a dream when I upgrade my struts and shocks. I do think they are finally pushing my struts/shocks to the end of their life, but oh well...10k miles isn't bad.
