No, the important part of the Omni kit is the sleeve shim to adapt for the smaller early struts to fit in the later larger knuckles.
The replacement bolts are an extra, handy to have if needed.
For which brand you can look in the Suspension section for reviews, or post there for fresh comments. I'd probably pick between Bilstein & Koni, though if one had a direct fit avail. it would be tempting to go for that.

Thanks sailor. Would i have to drill a bigger hole for the omni kit hardware?
Also what stut should i go with out of the three. Hell what strut would YOU go with?

Omni kit only IF you use struts made to fit '00-'07 model years.
Balance of hdwe. needs to fit the springs used, as shown in the original post here.
Boots can be a question mark, don't always fit across model year types or aftermarket selections.

I'll just post this here..
So i want to use an aftermarket shock on my 09 SE with my eibach pro springs.
I will need massive omni kit right?
Main choice of struts are
What hardware will i need to do the job right?

found this, I need all three circled items to make my 06-07 eibach springs work on my 08 struts, correct? So much conflicting info in that thread lmao.
and yes, I know I should have bought 08+ springs, but I got a killer deal on the 06-07 and knew i could make it work, just need to confirm those are the parts I need.
will still end up being way cheaper after buying those parts.

|pfsantos||A tad? Lol. I was using a good one and could tell it was working hard. Me and bro were almost shitting bricks. It didn't help i showed him YouTube "spring compressor fail" videos. :D|

You WILL want to get your car re-aligned ASAP to avoid wearing your tires funny.
As the others have mentioned, using a spring compressor is nerve racking as hell. I clamped my strut in a vice using one of the tabs on the strut thenused the spring compressor and tightened it down with an air impact. Everything went as planned, just a tad scary. LOL
