Default Re: Review: ECS Polyurethane-isolated Monoball RSMs

Are the sealed and bushed monoball RSMs something one would notice on the street compared to regular style high performance RSMs? Under circumstances or conditions?

Monoball RSMs of any sort are only really beneficial if you have high end/precise shocks. If your usage cycle benefits from those, it'll also benefit from these. If you're running stock/konis/bilsteins, I wouldn't bother (and am running stock RSMs with Konis on the wagon for that reason).

Rouge makes a nice, reliable, serviceable RSM that eases shock removal/install.
