I'm running Whiteline front and Neuspeed rear endlinks. Both are working silently, and the exposed bearings on the Neuspeeds still look new after 50k miles.

Wasn't it established a while back that DG springs are Eibach Pro-Kit painted blue?

Yeah it took me a while to find them actually in stock, too. I ended up getting the fronts from FCP, I must have snagged ECS's last in-stock rear, and the other rear came from amazon.

It helps to get the part number from Bilstein and search with that instead of by application. FCP Euro has them in stock, and they're available on amazon as well.

I've been lucky, I've never needed to replace mine. I did it at 80k miles just as a matter of course, but it still looked new. The replacement is still good 45k later.
