I had previously installed OME coilovers for the front, and a lift block kit to the rear. I bought these to complete my suspension conversion from OEM to OME. I also added the FK29 kit just for insurance in case I had vibration issues from the driveline.
Install is easy enough. It’s a little tighter on the bottom mount and lining up the bolt holes was the biggest challenge.
I took it for a quick test drive on the road and light trails. The rear feels stiffer than OEM. Most evident when going over speed bumps. On the trails, it soaks up the washboards, dips, and bumps easily. It was not harsh, but definitely provides more feedback than stock.
I will update after more road and trail use.
