We installed these shocks together with new front and back springs. What a difference. It doesn't bounce and float anymore.
Replaced my stock front shocks and 70's era air shocks on the rear. Ride is fairly middle ground. Not too firm, not too soft. Feels quite balanced. Great budget minded upgrade for worn out stock style shocks.
I installed the two front shocks on my '66 coupe along with a new set of coil springs. The front had sagged down far enough over the years that the tires would rub the fenders on sharp turns, but adding these shocks and new springs raised the car back up to the original height and gave it a good smoothe ride again.
I bought these shocks because I want a firm suspension with a feel of the road type drive and they seem to be perfect for that... they are not too stiff but it's definitely not like driving your father's Cadillac either.
