ordered from GS. Great upgrade. the light dispersion is so much better. they did not come with gaskets or clips, you have to carefully disassemble your old buckets and reuse the clips and gaskets. I have stock bulbs in the car right now since i swapped over the buckets from my SE since they were in much better shape.

palmer....
the hawk pads are very nice, interesting to break in but i find them to work very well. I have not yet driven with redstuff pads which were my other choice so i can't compare to those...but they do have nice bite.

yeah so am I, the transmission mount was huge too. maybe i'll go stage 2 on that later this summer.

the suspension just feels so much happier now, much more stable. really how it should have been from the factory, so thanks to you and jameson for recommending it, it was well worth the money.
