    Who do you guys feel makes the best suspension parts? Hotchkis, BMR, or UMI? If you think there is one better than these three let me know. I really want to get all my suspension done but just don't know who to go with. Maybe the different brands make certain parts better than others? Let me know please. Thanks.

    Only suspension kit I am familiar with is Eibach. I don't know how they would compare to those others you listed though.

    Another vote for BMR. I have used Hotchkis and felt they for one are over priced and two, they are heavy. I didn't know Jegs actually made any parts themselves.?
