Feedback on Hotchkis Track Pack

Has anyone installed the complete Hotchkis Track Pack (sways, springs and rear brace) on their car? If so, I would to hear your feedback about the kit. I have the Hotchkis bars on my car now and am looking into 1" only lowered springs for my car since I have the ground effects kit.

I have had the sway bars on since September and I love them. I just Installed the rear brace a couple of weeks ago. I have put the car up do to snow since the install so I have not driven with the brace yet. Nice quality and easy install though. I have been waiting for the springs since December. I should have them hopefully tomorrow. They said they were shipping by January 30th. I will report results as soon as installed.

the ride is great, not harsh at all, the chassis brace really tightens up the back end, the kit has exceeded all my expectations.
you can see my car in the california section, jan 30 nutec wheels and the jan 31 ivine spectrum posts, it's the blue ss, it's also on hotchkis facebook photos.
pm me with any other questions.

How long does it take to install the entire Track Pack, springs, sway bars, and brace?

Also, how hard is it to do?

Depending on your skills, it can be easily accomplished in a weekend or less!
