I removed the 3 month old sls and replaced with Subaru springs and kyb shocks. It is a massive improvement.
It could however still be stiffer.

Did you fit the Whiteline swaybar as well?

No. I only fitted the shocks end of last week and am away on business so not driving this week. I still want to evaluate a bit longer.

I've done nearly 2000km on mine and can say that I like them. However, they might be a little hard on really rough gravel road, even with damping set to the softest.

Strangely though, they get (AB)used in rally cross and hold up well.

But surely you need nice hard shocks when you drive enthusiastically on uneven surfaces?

Awesome, I can't wait! Ended up going for BC BR RA, the price difference between the 3 models is so small you may as well go for the newer model.
Not sure how long it usually takes but I'm bargaining on a month.

BTW.
I've already fitted the Whiteline rear sway bar.

Haha yeah my ACL Race bearings also came from them. Long story but they were able to supply them quicker than the supplier in Joburg which is also their supplier.

I find the ACL bearings (bottom end) a little noisy on start up. As soon as the car warms up it all good.

The STI is going back to have the final goodies fitted tomorrow. I cant wait.

Yep, mine does the same. Doesn't bother me as long as it lasts. What else are you having done?
