Default Tein Basics? Omni Coilovers? or Ground Controls?

I've narrowed it down to these 3 for a WRX
  • Tien Basics Coilovers
  • Omni Power Coilovers
  • Ground Controls w/KYB AGX's

I can't find much on Omni here but there's a lot about it in the Honda Scene(Honda-tech.com has a lot of for their products)

The car will be Autocrossed and Daily driven

What about the new Tokico D-Specs ?

I'm not recommending them -- just saying I believe they're in your price range and match what you're shooting for.

for the price of a ground control setup and struts, you can do the tein basics. i am trying to decide between the two as well as i am planning on coilovers next spring.

i am leaning towards the basics because it's a single unit and it is matched to work with itself. i would rather do that then mix and match parts.

I'd go for the Basics myself....i have not heard of Omni, so that rules them out...and i would choose any real coilover system over a sleeve type coilover like the GC's are...

So the basics are better what about being rebuilt because I know GC's take some time for rebuilding?

I would go with the GC/AGX or Koni setup because you will have, ride height adjustment, any springrate you want, and adjustable shocks. You will only have adjustable ride height with the Tien Basics (I have them now). I wish I went with GC/AGX's.
