Ceika Coilovers

I recently installed a set of Ceikas:

https://ceika-store.com/products/cct1m722

I still have my AMRs and really like them but I want to run something closer to stock struts. At least for now. Got the dual springs, seemed like a good idea but not sure it isn't a gimmick. No way to say without running a control group of coilovers without the dual springs.
Somehow, the length of the springs compared to the AMRs makes me feel like the spring setup is better than AMRs but I've also read it doesn't matter.

Got a full alignment and, though I don't have coilover clunk, I do have creaking noises on small bumps and the rears hit hard on big bumps. I probably have to play with the adjustment dials more but:

Wondering who else on here has recent Ceikas and your experience?

Photo shows 2 of the Ceikas along side one AMR. Should have taken more pics. The fronts have all the proper stock attachments, the rears needed a little modding in the form of creating a simple bracket with which to more fully attach the brake line. Or I could have used a zip tie (not!)

I like the ride and the customer support is really good, especially considering the size of the market we represent. They do handle well, too. And, I like being back to stock ride height.

Was wondering about any kind of sound insulation at the top even, like Dynamat buit guessing it wouldn't matter much.

Any thoughts appreciated!

Re: Ceika Coilovers

Glad to know there is another alternative to OEM. My Konis are still working fine, but you never know.

How did you spec yours out? There are six options listed. Just curious to how they match to what you ordered. Also, which ride high did you end up with? A side shot of the car would be appreciated.
