I haven't heard much out of whiteline shocks, struts, and coil overs. However, I have heard their springs and sway bars are top notch and have actually just ordered a set of super low springs from them from a US distributor last week.
As for their coilovers, I would buy different coil overs. For the same price with a lot more praise than the whitelines, I would go with either the Bilstein or Koni suspension. Of course they are only available in OZ, you would have to get them shipped over. Koni, of the US, has just released a shock insert for the front shocks. Still waiting for the rears to release.

Sorry, just rechecked and no they don't have coil overs. Here is where you can see a pic of the kit. Third one down.

neutral handling is the ability for the car to be balanced in extreme handling. The number you quote is a g-force factor that is determined by driving in a 200 foot circle as fast as possible while maintaining traction. One has nothing to do with the other.
