    I did not enjoy the ride of these and removed them. I replaced them with apex springs and im happy now.

    Its really split 50/50 on opinions on these, some love some hate, i took a punt at them and i did not like the ride of them, there was a strange secondary bounce with them + when i removed them i found one of the rear shocks was leaking.

    Most of the budget kits are very similar, out of the two you've mentioned I'd say the FK offer a slightly better build quality but the JOM offer a slightly better ride quality and also come with a years extra warranty.
