Any dampers for stock springs?

Seems coilovers are popular, but I can't find any dampers to be used with the stock springs. Koni doesn't list DAs (Yellows/Sports) anywhere for 1M or M3, but I've heard of people running them on those cars... anyone know where I might find some?

I think you can run jrz rs1 on stock springs

I plan to run Ohlins rt as close to stock height as possible as the pricing is close to jrz rs1 and hope they are a little more reliable and require less service over time

Hope this helps.

TC Kline could probably provide a set of Koni DAs for your application, he's done a few 1Ms.

JRZ offers a fixed height system to be used with OE or sport springs.

Here is a photo of the kit.

Does this improve the 1M's choppy ride over bumpy roads H ? Or this down to a combination of OE damper AND spring rates ?

OE dampers have way too much compression damping and not enough rebound damping so it's harsh over bumps and the feels like it's not settling down or button down after hitting bumps. These RS1's will address all that and will make the car ride better from the factory.
