I think that they would work fine... They are actually going to be my christmas present to myself! I just can't see spending the extra cash on ground controls if there is a cheaper alternative... Maybe the ground controls would handle better or something, but I haven't heard of anyone doing a side to side comparison. This topic comes up all the time - and everyone always says ground controls are better - but I haven't as of yet heard why they are better! Here is a link to a car that has them installed... I think they look good.
To elaborate, there simply is no better Suspension mod. Ground Control not only allows you to lower your vehicle so that it scrapes the ground, there is absolutely no pitch, no roll, and no nosedive once you install the kit. You've heard of "stop on a dime?" Try "corner on a dime." As soon as you touch the wheel the car responds. There's nothing like installing a mod and then laughing hysterically when you test it out... laughing uncontrolably in complete amazement at what a difference there is.
I think that for now I am going to use the stock ones because I will have the coilovers all the way up for the winter anyways... I'll probably replace the struts in spring. That way I can break up the expense a little, and don't have to pay it all at once.
You'll find this one alot more helpful than the page I put up. I just did mine to demonstrate what was involved b/c I was the first to have them made for the Cougar. I organized the initial group buys and brought these to market from Ground Control. That was awhile ago
