JRZ Suspension Engineering is proud to introduce the JRZ RS1, a revolutionary development in multipurpose high performance damping. Applying our race winning technology, JRZ designed the JRZ RS1 to give ultimate comfort for public roads and precise chassis control when driving on track.

The JRZ RS1 is a high gas pressure, single adjustable monotube damper. The canister has been designed inside of the damper. JRZ inner canister technology gives the advantages of monotube canister dampers without the mounting concerns and complexity. Easy to install, the JRZ RS1 is available as a complete kit with mounting hardware and springs for all applications we support. Built on the same production line and sharing components with our pro racing applications, the JRZ RS1 is of true professional heritage. Following JRZ’s design philosophy, the JRZ RS1 has a large 22mm diameter piston rod in strut applications and a 16mm diameter piston rod in aluminium damper applications. The large piston rod magnifies the high pressure gas charge which means great chassis control without using a high spring rate or increasing harshness.

Features

  • 22 mm rod strut, 16 mm rod damper
  • 24 clicks of damping adjustment.
  • Adjustable gas pressure, mono tube
  • Piston designed for high performance
  • Large adjustment range
  • Fixed hoses for easy mounting, available quick disconnect fittings
  • Remote reservoir or piggyback canister
Utilizing a mono tube design with a high flow piston ensures the smoothest possible ride in normal conditions while the bleed adjustment gives the ability to tune for racing situations. Unlike many other single adjustable suspensions, damping balance is carefully maintained between compression and rebound. This damping balance is critical to maintaining tire contact with the road in addition to controlling the main mass of the vehicle.

To satisfy the diverse needs of each driver’s application, the JRZ RS1 has an extra large adjustment range. With a few clicks you can turn your smooth street car into a crisp, rock solid track car in seconds.

JRZ has designed the JRZ RS1 to give the end user the best possible damper to drive daily, while maintaining the racetrack performance that wins championships. The JRZ RS1 is shipped as a bolt-on kit and always comes with the personal support JRZ is known for. Using the best materials, coatings and aerospace standard manufacturing processes as in our motorsport line; the JRZ RS1 is designed to perform flawlessly. Adjustment is easy to perform and comes with the knowledge base only JRZ provides to his customers.

Benefits

  • Easy to use and bolt-in
  • Street ride, racing performance
  • Extra long product life
  • One adjustment for complete control of ride and handling
  • Professional racing quality
Product Notes


  • When using any main spring over 450lbs AMS and JRZ recommend Tender Springs and Divider Plates be used in order to avoid excessive suspension droop.
Recommended applications

  • Daily driving
  • Drivers education (DE) events and track days
  • Club racing

^Price was the biggest shock to me when I called about these 6 months ago. For some reason I thought theyd be priced similar to the ohlins.

As an owner of the RS Pro's, I promise you, this will be one of the best purchases you can ever make for your car. The ride comfort with 500 lb/in front and 600 lb/in rear is ridiculously awesome.

You don't always have to go with their mounts/springs though, that can really help with the costs if you're worried about that.

I am glad I did not wait for these. I went for the same rates as Drastik, but with a different brand and double adjustable. Keeping it under wraps until I receive the whole kit.

In my opinion I would not get these over Ohlins, then again I have Ohlins so I'm biased but just from looking at the pictures the Ohlins have a much nicer build

How do you like them? what rates/other susp. parts are you running?

Write this down....ANYBODY with Ohlins will have nothing but praise because they are just THAT awesome! Most of the evo X users go with a 10K 10K setup which I think affords them a pretty neutral setup with aftermarket swaybar/endlinks etc.

Honestly theres no way to describe them other than they are by far the best mod I have ever done to a car. They have an almost stock feeling on the road with the softer settings. The build quality is great, I've driven them through 2 Canadian winters with no problems, and no rust (just pulled them out for check up over the holidays). If your considering getting them you might as well order them now :) but get stiffer springs in the back, especially if your tracking, I have ~500lbs in the front and ~600lbs in the back. No other suspension parts yet.

Yes your car will need these parts. JRZ offers these a la carte for those that might already have top plates and tender springs or are would like to source them elsewhere.

If you are running a soft spring rate the tender springs and spacers are not needed.

The Ohlins bodies do look very nice, but lets be honest, its whats inside that counts lol.

Seriously though. There are coilovers out there that look even better than the Ohlins but are total junk. Dont get me wrong, Ohlins makes a great suspension but I have driven both setups and really like the JRZ's. They ride sooooo smooth on the street.
