If the president of Ridetech is telling me the adjustments don't really work due to the high spring rate, it would lead me to believe it would be time to try a lighter spring rate.

Bit of a misunderstanding. There is no compression damping adjustment because they are monotube shocks and high spring rates arenít affected by adjustable compression damping is what I was told.

This is interesting. My Art Morrison subframe and IRS also had JRI coilovers.

Yes. When hitting a bump it was just smoother instead of instant Jolt. I also felt my rear suspension gripped better on the autocross track as well coming around a turn. Now understand my car is very low and for a simple coilover change I felt a huge difference. I prob have 5-8k miles on my new setup.

it is encouraging to know the JRI change and/or the re valving made a large difference for the rear, encouraging to hear smoother.

Question, did you do anything with the fronts as far as changing or re valving or are they still the original Ridetech that came with the coilover kit ?
