Mine are set to the settings that IND recommends (http://ind-distribution.com/ind/jrz-...l-coilover-kit)
Haven't had much time on them to try anything different or mess with the settings, but so far they feel great, and this is a good starting point.

Front
Compression + 6
Rebound + 7

Rear
Compression + 4
Rebound + 9

I have mine set to +7 comp +11 rebound. From full soft. My primary use case is track. Might go a bit stiffer soon.

Hey guys. As a JRZ global HQ supported driver I have run the RS Pro (2012-2013) and Motorsport Triples (2013-2015) in the past on my Honda S2000 race car. In 2015 JRZ switched me over to their newest series of triple adjustable race dampers, the 12 31's.

As such, JRZ is building me a set of RS Two's for my F80 M3 soon and we will be doing a blog series on the new JRZ website about how these compare and what we find as we test them at various track in California. My M3 will serve as a weekend car and occasional daily driver, so I'll also have plenty of seat time with it on normal roads.

We would love to also continue to get feedback from customers who have these now. Let me know what you've seen and experienced and also under what conditions and where.

Any tips on drilling the hole for the Rear Rebound extension/knob? I still haven't drilled mine yet.

No I bought my kit used, didn't include the adjustment knobs(which suck). Im waiting on a call back from JRZ to get a new set. I would imagine just drill from the inside so you don't have to remove the strut again.

Same issue here, my rear adjustment knobs do not work, even though they are mounted correctly. I also need to get a new set eventually...

My rears are a little bouncy. I wonder if raising the compression would help this. Any thoughts?

how bad is it? I have KW and it's so bouncy. I was thinking about changing it with JRZ.

Thank you for the photo. What bit did you use to drill it? And did you go from the bottom-up or from top-down?

Kinda blows that the bracket will kink it like this. Maybe cutting the cable to place the knob right bellow the cable would be the best solution. I think this whole rear rebound knob thing is the one thing that JRZ really messed up on.

Guys any more info on what it size you guys used and I am assuming you needed to have the suspension apart to drill this out from the bottom up?

I just got my set this week and get it installed. JRZ seems changed the rear shock design which the adjustment is done outside the car instead of inside. It doesn't come with the adjustment connecting rod and the adjuster is just below the rear shock mount.

Part no. 25S 012 F82 00 00

Good to hear. I may eventually switch over to this new design as I have yet to drill the hole.

Just had my RS Pro's installed, and was wondering where the rebound for rear was. I presume they moved it to the bottom instead of up top? I haven't had a chance to look under the car yet.

Aside from that, loving the JRZ's. They seem to soak up bumps much better than my old KW CS.

Edit: guess I should've read the prior post. Mine are new so I guess I have the newest design.
