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.
If you have the new JRZ's, the rear rebound adjustment should be on the shock shaft. You have to jack up the rear to access it.

If you have the older one like most of us early adopters, the rear rebound adjustment is at the top of the shaft.

FWIW, I find my JRZ RS Pro's smoother than my KW CS. Very happy with the switch. Street ability is very good, and I'm sure when I get to the track in a couple weekends I'll be like a pig in mud.

Hi guys, sorry to revive an old thread but I'm a little confused with direction of the compression adjustment. I know that with JRZ full soft is clockwise. But looking at the picture, if you turn towards the "+", wouldn't that be clockwise, which means the compression should be getting softer? But "+" means harder.

If you use the rebound adjustment as a point of reference, then turning the compression knob clockwise relative to the rebound adjustment should be making the compression softer. If that's the case, I'd still be turning towards the "+"....

Am I overthinking this? Lol. Just trust the diagram? Haha. If that's the case, then rebound clockwise isn't the same compression clockwise. Turning towards the "+" for compression would make sense if I flipped the damper upside down to adjust the knob.

Counter-clockwise is stiffer.

Those who drilled, did you use a rubber tube/grommet to make sure the wire for the knob doesn’t kink/rattle?

Anyone here also put a hole in the carpet for a clean final install?

I’ve yet to drill mine...

I'm setting up a new set of jrz rs twos this weekend, replacing my kw has setup. Any recommendations on where to set the collar for not such a dramatic drop up front as the KW gave me? Maybe an inch up front from stock and 3/4" rear from stock?

Thanks in advance!

I would say 20mm from the starting of the thread to the bottom of the perch, or roughly “two spring perches” worth. That gave me a modest drop (on 19x9.5 265/35/19 +19ET) of roughly .5 finger lol
