    RS SD Coil tuning. Avy or Vorsprung?

    I'm not interested in the price diff. Both seem to support their systems, pun not intended.

    I figured I'd ask here hoping for unbiased reviews.

    Also, is the host shock worth sending in for a tune?

    Canada or US?
    The border can be a pain in the ass if you are sending stuff back and forth, ie re-tuning or service. I have had most things go through, but with others customs broke out the microscope, ie for a CCDB that went back to NC for a rebuild and update.

    I'm Canukistani, and was planning on using Steve, but I ended up going Avy because I also did a fork cartridge (Yari) at the same time, in addition to the RS SD RCT Coil - figured balance wins out over separate tuners for each end.

    Good luck.

    There's US suspension tuners listed on the Vorsprung site authorized to do the work. Hopefully soon, the northern border becomes as porous as our southern border.

    Canít speak for Avy as I went with Vorsprung for my super deluxe air and have had it for about a month now. Itís been a nice improvement over the stock shock and I like the fact he replaces the stock dished base valve/HSC piston with a flat faced linear piston. Over the years Iíve found Iím not a fan of digressive compression damping and with modern bikes having steep seat tube angles lockouts and digressive curves seem less useful
