I've always rocked Ohlins side mount dampers. Can't go wrong with Ohlins.

top mounts "look cooler". But they all perform well.

From what I've heard and read, GPRs are the easiest to install. Any thoughts?

They all seem to work well. Top mounted units seem to crash better, the gpr has been known to leak, and if I'm not mistaken the scotts is basically an ohlins unit. I've had several scotts and never had a usage or failure issue with them.
