Default Skunk2 Coilover sleeves?

I have Omni Power Coilovers on my EG. Its lowered 1.5 inches, and the ride is ridiculously bumpy. Turns out these are drag Coilovers so there's my problem. Do I have to get a whole new set of Coilovers to have a bit of a softer ride? Or can I get Skunk2 Coilover sleeves, which have a lower spring rate, for a softer ride. (That would also be much cheaper than buying a new set of Coilovers).

from my experience with coil overs most are a bumpy ride somewhat, but i have felt much worse with drag coilovers. mainly its going to have alot to do with the shock you use. stock struts are deff a NO NO

I have full coilovers, so the shocks are not stock. Basically I am wondering if the skunk2 coilover sleeves will fit on the Omni Power's.

Has much more to do with the spring rates, then being a coilover.

OP, the sleeve will NOT work, you basicly already have it. The spring on the other hand may fit. But, I wouldn't being using skunk2 springs.

IMO skunk2 is a crappy spring/coilover but that's just based on my experience.
