ori struts are air shocks if I'm not mistaken - no coils....

I'm tempted to try them out...bobtail - what price/lead time can you do for a pair of ST-14's and a dual fill kit shipped to 90503?

My buddy runs them on his Buggy.

VERY, VERY stable without sacrificing flex. Awesome in off-camber stuff, and fully tunable to perfection. Totally eliminates the need for sway bars and they fit in small spaces well.

Not as good as coilovers for high speed stuff, especially whoops and jumps. But they seem to kick ass on a crawler.

They have greater stability and are easier to tune with just nitrogen pressure and rebound adjuster screw. And if you get the integral reservoir you will have a 24 position compression damping adjustment as well.

Reviving this post since ORI has made strides in high speed applications. We have run the new integral reservoirs in the desert for hours in 100 degree weather without any issues. Tested them in the west deserts of Utah, Glamis, CA. and Idaho sand dunes.
