im trying to get back to the "stock" ride but cant seem to manage. Ive replace all the struts and mounts, replaced both control arms. its not a bad ride but not what im trying to achieve.
Should I replace the springs on the car as well?
Springs are the last major part of the ride quality equation. Are yours worn out? If your car bottoms out often on harder bumps, or leans excessively in corners, chances are the springs are weakened. Also, if you haven't added STB's yet, I highly recommend it. $30 for two GM STB's make your car feel much more solid, and lean less in corners. These won't make your springs feel any better though.
Don't dis ma base man! Besides it's human nature to complain. When one starts doing it the rest follow.

i put the stocker on a week ago. though it make the ride better way better then before i replaced the struts but still not there. i also ran into something today. dont know what it is but sounded kinda like a flat in my rear tire but i checked and it wasnt flat.hmmm

You mean you hit something on the road, or you noticed one of the tires on your stock rims is making a noise like a flat tire?
May be a broken belt inside, or a wheel balancing issue. Does the tire have any unusual or uneven wear pattern on the tread?
i noticed the noise. i swapped the sides the rear tires were on (rr to rl and rl to rr). it doesnt make the flat tire noise but you can still tell something is wrong. When i make a hard left you can hear the noise again. It only happens with left turns.
I also notice that the one wheel didnt have any weights on it so im sure theres a balance issue there
Ive been getting a ton of bad vibrating anytime I go over 50. Just got my tires balanced yesterday, and its not back to stock, but mad a HUGE improvement since they haven't been balanced in like 30xxx miles. I know next on my list is struts and springs
