they are stiff on soft bumps and soft of hard bumps...so edelbrocks are naturally stiff shocks? I figured for $75/ea they'd be like rolls royce smooth....maybe i need the IAS's then, cuz ive been trying to find a stiff shock (im not a fan of mooshy shocks, and besides...bumpy roads keep me awake at 5am when im headin home from a party)
soft bump is kinda self explanatory I think? If you see a bump in the road and go over it and don't feel much, i consider it soft? A soft bump I would think would be a speed bump going over at a slow, idling pace? Whereas the same bump if gone over fast would be a hard bump...whats considered a soft bump? i live in the country if it gives you any idea of why im asking this...obviously city/town roads are smoother than out of town, semi's going up and down my road all day hauling fertilizer, etc.
I unsertand ya, cause the more I drive, the more I see how these shocks work. I feel the same bumps I used to with my old shocks. But now my truck barely dips and hops. The bumps that my truck used to bottom out on, now-i feel a small jerk as I go over them. And this isn't a harsh hard hitting jerk. So it isn't uncomfortable at all. I am really liking my Performer IAS shocks now.soft bump is kinda self explanatory I think? If you see a bump in the road and go over it and don't feel much, i consider it soft?

Dunno if this helps, but its kinda hard to explain...:think:
I would not run the stock application shocks on a 2/3 drop, that would really defeat the purpose of their application. I would run the 2" drop ones in the front, and maybe run some shock extenders in the rear with the stock application IAS shocks. This way you get the maximum performance from the shocks in the rear... Just my thoughts.I'm about to drop my tahoe 2/3 and was wondering if the stock application ias' would work? I'm just doing spindles but I can get a ridiculous deal on the shocks through work, otherwise I'll have to stick with the "revised" shocks belltech is sending me with the rest of my shat.
