Default Anyone running the ELC Gabriels?

Just wondering if anyone has tried the Gabriel Ultras for ELC equipped cars. Any thoughts or feedback? Would like to try the Sensatracks, but the Gabriels are a LOT cheaper!
Thanks
Erik

Gabriels aren't generally as well-liked here, but I have them on the front of the SSEi and they do well. However, the rear suspension needs alot more help than the front in my experience, and my quest to 'rail' my handling (which I succeeded in doing).

If your rears are shot, the Gabriels will feel great, but overall the Monroe is a better choice. Even the grade of Monroe directly under the Sensa would be better than the Gabriel I'd bet.

We're lucky here in Florida. 3 months can't go by without there being a major sale on Monroe Sensa-Tracs. Well worth the money to me.
