Normal would be the best option. Typically the more "heavy duty" they are, the more stiff they are.

You probably could, but you definitely won't get what was paid for them. I'm sure you know that already ;) .

What shocks are on? Shocks play a much bigger role than you'd think as far as the smoothness of the ride.

Bilstiens and KYB's are notoriously stiff on these rigs. Stock and Doestechs are pretty soft, but DT's customer service has been hit or miss lately.

Going back to the stock EAS system is always the best ride, but it could be a huge hassle if most of the system has been ripped out.

the control sucks when im deiving any bump i go over the steeringwheel shakes like crazy

Sounds like you could use a steering stabilizer (sp)... and possibly some other worn out steering components.


Yes, I have DT shocks. I think they're the DT3000's.... not sure though. I also have no idea what my spring tension is...I'm on Gen II air bags.

I have Bilstein with the medium duty springs and the ride is just about right, perhaps just a touch on the stiff side if anything. But I'm completely happy with the ride comfort and control.

KYB's will ride like a mule.
