A shock absorber's main purpose is not to provide/ensure 'ride quality', but is actually designed to ensure that you vehicle's tire remains in contact with the pavement at all times. A worn shock = erratic tire treadwear (cupping). I'm sure that it's the change in suspension (the new shorter/stiffer springs) which is what you're actually experiencing, and your OEM shocks are now not allowed to perform their intended job like they were initially designed to do. :sad2:John2517 said:300C Eibachs springs, 20's. Anyone have any luck with finding non OEM shocks for this car as the ride has degraded drasticly sinced changing the suspension.
Eric, I'm not saying its a big problem for daily driving - other than being careful over speed bumps, inclines, etc. It won't make much difference in handling.Scarbrs said:So Pat you saying its a bad idea? I know you have talked about it before but I really like the look.
Variant I or Variant II?obiwan said:Had the same problem on my Magnum, was fine to start then 3000 miles or so and it was a '59 caddy.
Picked up KW coilovers with adjustable height and damping, very nice ride, firm, follows the road and no more float.
