ORI Struts

Maybe I'm a dork, but I just discovered these--http://www.oristruts.com/index.html

Lightweight, easily packaged, very small, no sway bar needed. The only con--$$$$$

Where I discovered them: Ori ???? - Pirate4x4.Com Bulletin Board

Anyone in here used them or seen them in use?

ORI DP3 Strut - Pirate4x4.Com Bulletin Board

Read for yourself--another huge advantage, and it may be the larges--NO UNLOADING. These are awesome.

From ORI:

Features
Patented differential pressure hill sensing technology exclusive only to the ORI DP3 Strut.
Standard color is black with chrome. Other colors available by special order.
8” to 20”
ORI Struts can replace heavy, expensive components such as springs, shocks, bypass cylinders, shock oil coolers, bump stops and limit straps. All these features included in one lightweight ORI Strut!
Dual-pressure piston eliminates piston shaft unloading, or push-off

Struts can be tuned for stiffness settings from loose articulation to sports car-like stability by decreasing or increasing charge pressures described above.
Adjust ride height by simply changing charge pressure.

Support from featherweight to over 1300 pounds per strut
Internal hydraulic bump and limit stops

Bypass cylinder is integral (built-in), not strapped on with external plumbing
7-Position externally-adjustable velocity-sensitive hydraulic rebound damping
3-Stage externally-adjustable hydraulic compression damping
1 ” hard chrome hollow piston shaft and 2” hard chrome cylinder
2” Stainless steel piston
5000 psi high pressure urethane dynamic seals
Bright anodize aluminum outer surfaces
Teflon-lined spherical bearings at both upper and lower mounts
Lower mount is ultra high strength heat treated aluminum

o0o sexy. looks pricey

my favorite techie shocks are the "smart" rheological shocks that use magnetic fluid which changes flow and stiffness properties based on electromagnetic field.
Magnetorheological fluid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Smart fluids - Physicists Apply Magnetic Fluids to Shock Absorbers

YouTube Video: YouTube - MR (magneto-rheological) Fluid - Pacific Science Center

Imagine the possibilities when combined with a computer chip to control millisecond switching of fluid stiffness.

Pretty cool ^^. These ORI's are so freakin sweet and simple and judging by what everyone says, THEY WORK. And at about $600 a corner, it's not THAT expensive considering you don't need a spring, a shock/CO, limit straps, bump stops, or sway bars.

then consider the new Balistic airshock/coilover hybrid and 300 a corner

im a big fan of making it perform best on the street and better offroad but im kinda leary about using a strut.

Those are nice, but they're still CO's. If I'm going to be spending a lot of money (defined as more than $100/shock), I'll go with the simple, functional package that ORI offers.

so is it basically just a nitrogen air shock that has resistance at both ends? because i know struts usually require a spring - that doesnt seem to be the case with these

i read into it a little more, it has 2 sets of springs on the inside soft springs and hard springs and it will SWITCH between the two as it senses camber at what not.

amazing

i'll take 4

Haha, yeah. They are REALLY cool and I have yet to find anything but amazing reviews. No failures, super durable and they just flat out work really well. And imagine not having to set up spring and shock mounts, limit straps and bump stops......sweet.

I have been researching these since KOH last year... I'm in. And I am finding over on Pirate that the cost is actually pretty reasonable (depending who you buy from) considering what you get.

From what I'm reading, a whole lot better... they are calling this a strut And struts work well on the street.

After reading, it looks like they dampen extremely well while also giving you a very tight ride on the road. Off the road, they are just nuts.
