OME mixed messages

I have been pricing out an OME set-up for the past month it seems. Trying to buy the kit from Canada, however all said and done the Toytec OME kit is still the best option because its a complete package and I would have to get parts from several places if I stayed in Canada. I was about to make the purchase and got a heads up that there might be valving issues with the shocks from toytec. Can anyone point me to a thread that can help me out or have any input? Sorry for the rant.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I just got a text from another TW member telling me that there might be issues with the OME shocks from toytec. I guess my real question would be: Is there any reason not to buy OME from Toytec?

I have heard some people have issues with the OME springs sagging that were bought from Toytec, and Rpoint16 had the same issue. However, I have not hear of any of the OME springs sold from Wheelers sagging. Now, I was told by a representative from OME that a few years ago, they began "Scragging" (pre stressing) their springs. Im not entirely sure if some old OME stock is still floating around, or not, but thats the only info I have heard. About 4 years ago, OME had a bad batch of rear shocks, that had poor welds, but any that leaked were warrentied and replaced for free.
