For the street, the overall feeling is about the same when DD'ing. Only in the canyons or track/autoX would the JRZ's start to feel $1200 more.

Of course reservoir/multiple adjustment JRZ's aren't an apples to apples comparison, so not sure why you brought those up?
I am, I almost bought a set used. Didn't because JRZ told me it was impossible to source rebuild parts, so they were effectively a part with an expiration date.

Iím planning to run GC DAís with a medium spring and eventually their sway bar. I dd my car so my thinking is use the sway bar to keep the car flat vs spring. The DA will allow me to do more fine tuning as I grow into HPDE. I think this set up with weight jacks and hybrid camber plates is around 2800 or so, awesome value.

Odd, who did you speak with? The re-valving parts aren't any different than the standard 1wy they produce. I called about 2 months ago and was given two different shops to send them out to.

I wouldn't put the PSS10s where they are, either, with their limited spring rate options.
That’s why I only put the Ohlins at ‘Sporty Street’(aka not Daily) and the tail end of the ‘Tracked Street’ due to their compromises you’ve published.

You should. PSS10 (B16) work great with linear spring conversions. Monotube + digressive valving can handle big spring rates, Bilstein durability/lifetime warranty, and none of the travel issues the Ohlins have with camber plates. They are an excellent dual duty damper for the money. I’d take them over a 1way JRZ or MCS.

^The PSS10 kit has peaked my interest at times. I think their upper priced kits are far superior to their regular strut HD offerings. Good info thanks for chiming in with actual knowledge.

Ohlins.

$160 is much more reasonable considering it's just some seals and fluid.

That quote was from Ohlins.

By "a pop", do you mean per shock?

The $1300 I quoted was for all 4.

I don't know-- this was two years ago. I was considering the set Braymond was selling for the wagon.

The underlying issue was that the Dinan JRZ's used a 46mm piston. Years ago JRZ switched to 44mm pistons, hasn't made new parts for the 46s since, and new old stock has run out at this point.

I tried ~5 rebuild shops that JRZ said might have parts, as well as Dinan themselves, before giving up and going with the Konis. My hope was just to stockpile a bunch of rebuild kits

Yeah, "a pop" is per corner, but still nowhere near Ohlins quoted.

I wouldn't even think of going to Ohlins for this. Similar to doing an oil change or a valve adjustment at the dealer .

PSI (performance shock inc) in Sonoma does rebuilds.
