I bought some Monroe shocks from O'Reillys....they had a spring to make them a little heavier duty. There are nice, but went back to air shocks for a stiffer ride with less play...

I have bilstein shocks front and rear with airlift bags inside the rear moog cargo coil springs. You can set them to any height but they're not mushy like air shocks.

I have KYB gas-a-just shocks with AC Delco G-body wagon springs with air lift 1000 asset bags !!

For the budget-minded (like I am), I'd highly suggest the gas coil-overs. Great ride at a reasonable price!

Ok I am starting on the suspension. is there an advantage to the wagon springs over the variable rate springs? do you really get more capacity? I use my car like a truck peroidically. I want to be able to haul my motorcycle (750 lbs). how much capacity will I really gain with those coil overs? They claim 1200 lbs. Is that realistic? I like the idea of not having to add air to the shocks since its so hard to get air now-a-days.
