    They would have to be much better shocks I just repalced mine, mind you they are Monro sensatracks (can't afford any thing better) and it's still there.

    I have "brand-new" LCA, TA, and KYB AGX all-around.

    I bet it's the springs... Wish I had the money to get them now, but I just got done battling a tranny rebuild...

    there is the problem... monroe are pretty much as bad as stock if not worse... and i can bet lots of $ that by changing that, the problem is gone.

    1. I have less than 10k miles on my KYB AGX gas-adjustable (8-click setting.)
    2. I have about 13k miles on my NEW (stock-like) LCAs and Torque Arm.
    3. Differential has been inspected, and driver's-side axel has been replaced w/ bearings.
    4. Springs are completely stock. 156,800 (ragging) miles on them. I had to drive over some cattle-guards yesterday, and it was awful. I was going 4mph, and it felt like my suspension was bottoming out on every bump... slamming and rattling everything in the interior... I used to be able to race over these things... same with speed bumps...

    I think I'll swap the springs first. Any recommendations for a setup that handles like it's on rails, but isn't much lower than stock, and won't bottom-out? I hit bottom a lot as it already is...

    I hear the eibach pro kit is too low, and travels too far, causing it to hit the ground, but there seem to be so many options out there.... Hopefully I can find something that matches up to my KYB AGX I already have.

    Opps! I missed the part where you stated you had KYB's. Put in some aftermarket springs.

    I sent an email to Strano to see what he recommends to pair up to my AGX setup...

    I would like to keep my ride height about the same, but if I lose an inch, (or 1.2",) I won't cry a river... as long as everything matches up...
