      sheyp. our stock dampers/struts/shocks/longpolesthatabsorb weren't meant for lowering springs. Get better ones.


      BTW: Search "hybrid suspension guide" and "newbie pet pieves" jk d00d.


      edit: ok, I'm not kidding. Search both of those and prevent future threads like this.

          Your title, adnd post seem to be conficting. Do you want a less bouncy ride? Or do you want a stiff ride? Or a soft ride?

          The reason why GC springs on stock shocks are bouncy, is because the OEM shock can't absorb/slow down the strong rebound of GC spring, when the spring brings the car backup to ride height.
          The purpose for the AGX, Koni Yellow, or Illumina, is to supply greater resistance (which is tunable) to absorb the springs' rebound energy.

              Eesh...be careful going too stiff. You can actually make a car handle and drive worse, and take turns slower by going to too stiff. There is a purpose for bump travel. And the purpose of a springs/shocks is to keep the chassis at a steady position as it goes over bumps.
              About 80% of the time, the path to better handling involves better tires, not a stiffer ride.

                  I have Illuminas, 5 way adjustable, they are great


                  I'd also suggest GC top hats, they allow for more suspension travel
