I have these POS coilover shocks on the back of my car & orig rear springs" Its time to get rid of the things cause the ride really sucgs and it handes like crap. "Stiff!

Bilsteins" Are they really worth all that?Thats a lot of $$ for shocks! I want a nice comfortable smooth ride. My car now rides like a old car. I would like for it to ride as it did new + some.
Ill also be adding some moog varible rate springs" If they wont give me a stiff ride?

Any ideas welcome!
