springs or shocks?
ok im on my 80k miles, i still have my stock shocks and i have aftermarket SPRINT springs for 3 years now, heres the question...my ride is bounce i want to know whether its my springs that need replacing or my shocks and the obvious answer would be both, but i want a really good answer...i have a 1.8 in. drop so lets say 2 inches.
