sumo springs too rough

I installed the more aggressive rear sumo springs that bolt on and the bilstein shocks and now the ride is really bad. I will be changing the sumo's to the less aggressive slide in type or back to the originals I took off. Anyone looking to upgrade, I would not recommend the bolt on type sumo springs.

Sorry to hear. I swear by the ride the slide-ins provide. Very smooth.

I went with Koni stuts and Sumos in the front, Hellwig sway bar and Koni FSD's in the rear, seems to be fine. Unfortunately I have nothing to compare it to, but I know I'm not getting beat up.
Had to buy a gel cushion for the drivers seat, that were I was hurting!
Anybody using an air ride seat?

Has anyone else installed the more aggressive rear sumo springs and how do you like them? Do you also find that the ride is bad. I was thinking about adding them but maybe the less aggressive slide in type would be a better choice.

As posted elsewhere, the sumo maxims do firm up the ride at the rear, but the gain in sway and control was worth the small sacrifice in ride. But you may want to go with the bump stop version as they seem to be satisfactory and no percieved sacrifice in ride quality is reported.

I hated my drivers seat too. I got really tired of shifting my memory foam bottom seat cushion and lumbar cushion and finally had custom seats made with power lumbar, heat and massage. It's saving my back on long drives now!
