remote res vs non res

hey guys, looking for some opinions: at what point does one need to get a remote res?

for your average, maybe even below average, weekend warrior, would non-res shocks/coilover be sufficient.

just looking to save money and not regret it in the future.

thx

For weekend warrior and budgetary constraints, yes coilovers would be sufficient.

Desert running and high-speed stuff where the shocks would tend to overheat necessitates reservoirs. Crawling, trails, etc. not so much.

In most cases the resi is absolutely overkill and I would recommend against them. With the Tacoma we actually do a rear resi because we can get more travel out of the shock than a non-resi. Because of this, the shock we offer has the most travel of any Tacoma shock on the market utilizing the stock mounting points. In this case adding a resi is much more than heat disapation.

For the front coil-overs you also have the option of converting them to remote reservoir at a later date. Just send them in and we change out the top cap, upper mount and add the hose reservoir and bracket plus rebuild them.
In addition to heat capacity and “Cool Factor” like Mike stated we often need to go remote reservoir for the increased down travel. By moving the nitrogen/oil dividing piston and the nitrogen chamber out of the upper part of the main cylinder in to the reservoir cylinder we then have more room in the main cylinder for a longer shaft. Most of our reservoir rear applications are primarily for this reason; the front coil-overs do not need the reservoir for shaft length so it is an option for heat and bling. The coil-overs we make for the Chaos long travel kits are all reservoir for travel and harder use.
