Which is the best option?!

I'm having trouble deciding between two options:
- OME 2.5" coils paired with Bilstein 5100s.
or
- BDS 2 or 3" coils paired with Bilstein 5100s.

Which is the better option in terms of ride and durability? I know both claim to not sag.

Would I be okay with a TC drop and stock CA's until I save up more?

I have the 2" BDS springs and OME shocks. It rides better a few months after the install or maybe I just use to it. In hindsight, I would have bought the OME kit. The light load springs are rated as less stiff than the BDS's. I've read good things about, Bistein shocks. Good luck with your choice!

I just installed OME springs with bilstein 5100s. I have zero complaints. Once I add additional weight of bumpers & skids Im sure itll be even better. I went with the HD springs (but then I have an LJ)
