Omni power coilover suspension any good?

I was contemplating between the Tein basic and PIC before.. Ive come to the conclusion that PIC quality and performance for the price is well worth its price.. and TEIN basic is not really a track thing unless its FLEX... but im hearing about this OMNI power brand... What are everyones opinions on them as opposed to TEIN and PIC? I have searched for threads on this can not find any... If anyone can help me out.. shout! thanks..

I'm running omni sleeves with integra struts and I think it's the bumpiest ride I've ever had, the car is rock solid.

I've driven a few cars that have had the Omni Power Coil overs installed. They are the equivalent to Tein Basic. They are height adjustable but not damping adjustable. I can't speak for the durability of the system but the ride was ok just a bit bouncy. The system is good for the person who is both on a budget and who drives on the street. If you have the extra money I'd say step up to the PIC's or even TEIN Super Streets. You'll be much happier.

PIC>Omni

My friends omni's sleeve snapped after 8-9 months of street driving. A know countless people on PIC's, no problem what so ever.

All these coilovers are pretty much made by a handful of Taiwaneese mass producers so there is very little difference in the product from a quality and technical perspective.

So while neither PIC, nor OMNI would be my personal choices for suspension, if you must choose between the two, you might as well flip a coin.
