    That, combined with new springs, is why it seems so stiff.

    As the springs settle it should loosen up a LITTLE bit but dual shocks will always seem stiff on regular roads.

    Just for giggles, take two of them off (on opposite sides /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) and see how that feels.

    Do what Goober said about the shocks and give the springs some time to wear in. Remember You just replaced Your old probably worn out springs with new ones.
