    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.

    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. :frusty:

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