To those with Skyjacker Hydros

If you push down and try to bounce up and down on the bumpers with Hydros
does the suspension move or is it solid. With my Rancho RXS or my old Rancho rs5000 shocks the suspension is very solid and the ride is the same. I am considering getting new Skyjacker Hydors based on what I have read about their smooth ride. Could someone do the test for me?

I have Rough Country hydros and they are exactly like that (very stiff and hardly move when pushed on). I wish I would have gone with gas charged because I think the ride would be much improved.
