Re: OME vs BB and Bilsteins
Its going to be a night and day difference. The OME your getting finely tuned springs a great shocks designed for best comfort and handling and load.
With the BB and Bilsteins your getting great shocks and struts and using a poly spacer to gain lift while retaining the crappy springs that are not designed to handle loads or the charastics of a lifted vehicle. The only benefit to the stock springs is ride comfort and many of us don't find anything comfortable about stock springs.
The other benes a stock spribdzfit to OME is better off road performance. The springs lifting the vehicle will make for better trail handling and articulation. The suspension has more movement as a spring where a stock spring and spacer is limited to the movement of the stock spring. IMHO a BB is only gOood for bigger tires. If I was doing it I'd spend the extra $ and go with OME in a heartbeat! Its going to be better then a BB hands down. In my honest opinion a spacer lift is no better then a body lift on a body on frame vehicle like a wrangler or truck.
