I used to have a rough country lift with their so called upgraded shocks. The shocks felt like riding a track style go-cart on highway rumble strips.

That's an understatement for Bilsteins. I'd take mrblaine's opinion over anyone else's on this forum.

Folks tend to brag about how nicely they eat up the larger events while failing to mention accurately in the same breath they are real handy at determining if a quarter is heads or tails simply by passing a tire over it.

Small event harshness is quite annoying to me.

bushings, and they dont, which can lead to other damage and is one of the reasons the 4" kit is not normally recommended
