Totally correct . I didn’t ruin my car totally but let’s say lightning up the front the way I did this go round did make it a bit harsher . It’s no bucket of bolts drag car or rattle trap by any means ( less the heimjoints in the rear upper control arms )You guys think I'm joking.
The red car was probably carrying 500+ more pounds in it than it was when it had the 4 cylinder in it.( probably more). In its previous state, it was god awful. Every bump was like hitting a pothole. And when it was a pothole it would chatter your fillings out. After putting in the heavier drivetrain, adding sound deadener, the roll bar, the bigger tank, the audio system, and all of the steel body mods, the ride changed dramatically from " I hate this thing" harsh to an acceptable firm.
Lighten up your car in an effort to go faster, and you'll go the opposite way...and no decent shock or spring is gonna make that ride any better w/o gutting the character of the car altogether.
The Monster has the same added weight regimen, and together with the longer wheelbase ..I'd actually characterize the ride quality as really nice.
Both cars did have 4 corner coil overs with really soft springs.. ( the sole purpose being to support the weight while allowing the car to rebound/extend) I'm sure that had something to do with it too.
