better ride = leave it stock.

I had skunk 2s and they werent bad at all, you must have them dumped all the way down. People will tell you to try differentr coil set ups but I am yet to hop on a set up that rides stock while significantly lowering the car. Gonna have to get use to it if you want to roll slammed.

get extended top hat so the shock shaft can travel more.

Yeah, what Jeebus said.

You may wanna consider raising it maybe 1/4-1/2 inch. You'd be surprised just how much a difference it could make in the ride quality.

I am riding on a 2.5 inch drop and the car isn't SLAMMED but it's low...and I have yet to bottom out. HR Race Springs on Tokico Whites. Not too bouncy.

How slammed is it? Post pics if you can, I seen some ride pretty low and still comfortable, not the best ride or near stock, but comfortable enough to sit through it. Then again I rode in some that are slammed and ride like complete ass:gonk:

nice nice and you told me it was a nice ride... ok what you have to do is raise it up a bit.. and throw on some different springs. to find out which springs will work with the pro c that you have.. call skunk2 and they will tell you. great Customer support.

to stop the bounce he need adjustable damper.

The lower you go the worse it rides period.

Tough it out or go higher.
