Yeah, I hear ya. About two or three x-braces went up for sale locally after I bought my brand new one. One of them sold for $55 (!), and another went for $100...

Oh well. That's just the way it goes.

I'm cool with certain AWD turbo Toyota content. When FWD Cobalts start getting posted, that's where I draw the line!

They're coils, so you can adjust the ride height to your liking, obviously. Ground Control is a great name, however I don't have any experience with them first-hand. I'm sure they're well worth that asking price, but I think they will be sold very soon, if not already.

There are a few different iterations of GC C/O packages. You'd want to verify that what's being offered isn't their full-on race setup, which would be far too stiff for street driving.

It's not. It's the street setup.
