I had some questions about the ORI's how easy are they to set up
The ORI's are pretty easy to set up if you have a good link geometry and build the suspension around them. The key with them it so have a about 40%-50% shaft showing at ride height. After that to tune them there are only 3 things to mess around with. You have
1)lower pressure (stiffness of the ride)
2) upper pressure (ride height)
3) Rebound screw (sets the damping factor)
I am slowly getting my tuned to the way I like them. So far the pressures that work good for me is
Front - 130/330
Rear - 125/330
rebound is set to 3 for off road and 6 on road (7 positions possible)
Also if any one cares to know. My buddy has tire weight scales and we drove my jeep on top of them.
FR - 1316 FL - 1377
RR - 1347 RL - 1324
Total = 5364
Front = 50.21%
This weight was with me in it. Jeep has all the aluminum armor installed, full doors, 10 gals of fuel, rear tire on, and top on. So basically it had everything installed on it.
With that being said I have been DD him to work (60 miles each way) to work this week. Great way to get noticed at a new job
. The last 400 miles I tracked the fuel economy and it came in right at 19mpg going 60-70mph on country roads.
