ome 885/eibach springs with 5100's vs. king coilover shocks

minus price, what are the advantages of either? more stroke/articulation? adjustability? payload? reaction time(going over fast stuff, prerunning)? ease of installation?

this is obviously for oem travel with ucas installed.

King/Fox/Icons can be custom valved and are rebuildable. 5100's and Nitrochargers are not. Most of the higher end coilovers are also adjustable with a spanner wrench. You can get a threaded collar for the 5100's also but otherwise you need to disassemble the coilover to make a height adjustment and there is no adjustability with nitrochargers.

Billy's will get you a great lift that can handle just about anything,
Icons/Fox/kings will get you a better lift that can handle just about everything, at much higher speeds

I like my kings a lot. I also liked my 1500's too but maybe that was just the feeling of still having cash in my wallet.

Not to kill the OP, but what about OME kit vs Bilstein/eibachs since there about the same level of shocks and what not?
