Time to Drop

Okay after many weeks of research i've decided to go with this package kit from password JDM which includes a full set of Omni power coilovers, along with a front and rear camber kit. My question is which package is better, the street or the sport. I know one package has stiffer sping rates and i'm not sure which one to get...

EDIT: here's the link to the package Omni Power

Price seems nice for all the things included and it's all made in the USA

Also found that (Street F=10K & R=8K) (Sport F=12K & R=10K) So the question is, which spring rates would you guys recommend?

Dude, you could've asked this question. I owned one of the first OMNI's out there.... he he. I have that camber kit too.

Anyway, I decided to get the Street spec vice the Race version. The reason being is, since this system is so well designed, you can almost do anything you want with it, even with the street version. You can adjust the dampers to "pre-load" it to give you a more stiffer feeling. But this can compromise the rebound and make you feel like you are bouncing around all over the place but in reality, you are not. It just has that stiffer feeling. Keep in mind that this product is based off the Bilstein design. Ever wonder why the Skunk2 coilover system look almost the same? Guess who initiated that design?

If you want better daily driven drivability, then I strongly suggest to stick with the Street series. I've driven my Teg insanely to corners before and I just keep getting impressed with this product....... my system is not even "preloaded".

I've talked to a bunch of people who tested the product before. They are mostly on H-T. Their comment is that both products are equally great. It just that the race version is more focused on extreme circuit racing courses.

OMNI all the way mang. Best bang for the buck when it comes to suspension!

I too have heard alot of good things about and on the Omni Power products...
Defintely would recommend te Street if you are daily driving a car..no real need for a Race setup w/ the adjustability and options w/ the Street Version.
Not to mention w/ the camber kit I know quite a few people that recommend that over the Skunk2 front camber kit. You won't be disappointed w/ the $$ spent on the OmniPower parts...

they are made in taiwan...there is always a reason why something cost as much as it does, and these don't really cost much of anything.

for that price get some tein basics or something of that level.

wow, there is a lot of freak accidents with them. also i would not blame the bushing in the first thread. mine looks the same way and it has been like that for over a year and the teins are hoding up just fine, and the suspension has been thru hell and back.
