    triple-black
    2000 CamaroSS convertible

    what springs and shocks you have ?
    when you say "It's a really stiff ride (no mercy on my back)"
    I think that translates into "harsh ride" = incompatible shock damping w/ given spring rates.

    I think the shocks were just breaking in, cause today they worked perfectly, I didn't feel any bumps and the ride was perfectly smooth.

    I have the prokit also and was planning on going with the agx's also. Have you mest with the adjustments yet. And if so was there a noticable feel when you did? Can't afford the koni's right now, been shopping around and for the money I'm leaning towards the agx's. Thanks!

    Yeah, I have them set on 8 right now (the firmest ride)...it's really rough, but I love it...driving a fast car that has a rough ride is the real deal...I guess I'm different from everyone else that wants a smooth ride *shrug*

    I turned it to 2 (stock ride) and I didn't like it one bit.
