    Funny you mention under damped. When I met up with John and we picked up Phil he bounced the car and asked if my shocks were blown. They were KYB gas a justs...basically brand new. I may look into bilstein shocks. I am not swapping springs though. I feel they are fine....though do make a little noise in the rear over bumps...and maybe something coming from the left front when turning right over bumps. lol Other than that everything is great!




    Looks nice Phil. Car is LOW!

    Bilsteins are a great product; I have 5100s on my Ram, and even with the lift and 36s the thing rides far better than stock. Plus... 5100s have a lifetime warranty.

    But with that being said, quality or not, if they are not rated to damp a 925 in/lb rate spring, then they won't. You want some AFCO 1020s or similar, matched to the high rate spring.
