I just had my J-hose rebuilt by them - and so far I'm very happy with the results. They kept the restrictor - in my conversations with Jay at HOH, he's had enough requests to keep the restrictor that he's kept it as part of the rebuild. The J-hose from the pump to the bomb wouldn't create groaning issues, so I can't speak to that. But no issues - and I did flush the system, which I would definitely suggest.
The shipping was more expensive than the actual repair, though three of us shared the costs, sending three hoses in at once.
I did try locally if they could rebuild the hose first, but decided to go with HOH anyway.
