So how is it guys? i ordered it for my 4th gen 3" drop total all around and then they said it was 30% stiffer than stock and that it can hold 450 lbs in the front and 350 in the back. whas all that mean?

So tell me about it... will i like it a lot?

What brand of coilovers do you have? The spring rating I.E. 450/350 is how stiff the springs are. The higher the number, the stiffer they are. :)
I'm not too technical on how the lbs make them stiffer, i think it's the amount of force they bounce back, but i could be wrong. :)

With the ground controls you get these special springs. like EBS springs or something like that specifically made for the collar coilover unit.

It's ERS. I believe it stands for "Eibach racing springs". They are linear rate. Unlike progressive springs that have soft spots at the top, the ERS springs are at full rate all the time. They are designed for racing and can be ordered in a variety of rates and free lengths. BTW if you really want handling run them 350 front / 450 rear. That's what I have.

i think the stiffer it is in the rear, the easier the tail would come around.

Not at all but a lot of people change suspension because the set they first ordered turned out to be too stiff or too soft for their liking. You might be alright though. I doubt you'll have a problem. But it COULD turn out that they aren't what you expected.
