OME vs Eibach (Lift Kits)

So I just posed the question in another thread, but thought it was worthy of it's own place to discuss outside of that one.

My question is whether the OME kit is worth the extra $ when they (OME & Eibach) are most likely almost identical in performance?

Old Man Emu definitely has the run on the lift market and Eibach sound like they are fairly new to it, so that may be the cause of the price difference. If they were similarly priced, I'd definitely go with the assurance of OME's reputation. But since they aren't, I'm curious about their performance comparisons.

Interested to hear other's thoughts as well.

I think the big "selling point" for some people when looking at these two kits and which is going the compatibility with the load level rear suspension & towing packages - i.e. the Nivomat rear shock - if needed of course.

The OME having the three different spring rates for the front springs may being the selling point for others.

It looks like the Eibach kit is offered for those with or w/o the tow package as well, but those are the only options, compared to the three OME offers.
