I'm running this set up. I don't think I really have any complaints as the ride is exactly what I was expecting; firm with a touch of give compared to the GTWorx and Yellows. It can get a little bumpy on uneven backroads and the dampers have the tendency to thud when you hit gaps in concrete at a good speed, but on 90% of roads they are great. I drive a lot of highway so it's a perfect application for me. With the upgraded sways and links I have, the weakest link is now the stock tires.

Hard to tell you whether to go with the GTWorx or revalve the stock dampers because I haven't tried both. I definitely wish I could take a ride in a car with dampers valved specific to the RCE blacks, however I would bet the difference in ride is subtle at best. In other words, if you'd be concerned about floating too much on a revalve, I don't think it'd be too soft for you.

My advice would be to find someone close by who's running the GTWorx and go for a ride. It's honestly the only way to know.
