They dont fit well on the GC chassis though, only 6 or 8 of the mounting points will attach because the GC didnt have the stock subframe and the front mounting points are farther back than the GD chassis

if by really bad ride quality, you mean, not letting the car flex where it shouldn't flex. It does just that. you can't really tell that much. however i haven't had my car for almost 2 years, but thats what I remember. you may want to ask someone who has it on their car presently.

Its a slight increase in vibration. I noticed. well worth the gains. But having said this. I also have every bushing replaced with whiteline or cusco in my car. I feel everything.

I know, I know, but the one I got was easy access. I can say this: the one I have has been on a car for 3 or 4 years now and is still going strong. No rust, no issues at all. I also stood on it trying to flex it and it didn't budge. Awesome piece for sure. The stock stubframe is the biggest joke ever by comparison; I feel like I could tie the stocker in a knot with my bare hands.
