    Need a better ride question

    I have QA1 R coil overs up front. I have no problem with them. The back Im kind of experimenting and trying to get a better ride. I now have BMR lowering spring and monroe shocks in the rear. I was thinking about going back to the factory spring with the hose instead of ther spacer and different shock like Bilsteins. I might be higher in the rear and thats ok because I hit my cut out right now anyway. Will I notice a night and day difference ? Im hoping it will be a softer ride in the back also.

    The after market spring is probably making you stiff in the rear.
    Ground control in Shingle Springs, CA will be able to advise and ship the ht and rate you need. thier springs are very inexpensive.
    The stock decarbon rear shock will be fine.

    get rid of monroe shocks... i think those are the only ones that are able to beat the deCarbons in terms of sucking.
    Just get decent set of rear shocks and your ride will improve a lot.

    I might just try that first. Would the standard Bilstein be a step up from what I have now and the factory decarbons. Is this a good deal n rears ? http://eshocks.com/bil_veh.asp?Model...tein&SubChar=Q

    those will be much better.
    Those seem to be the Bilstein HD shocks, which are great... but from what i heard, Bilstein is having some QA issues in some shocks fabbed lately... even then, they'll be a lot better than the Monroe.
    give Sam a call @ www.stranoparts.com
