If you found the original information about the specific suspension parts what did they say?

Also you **first response is why I posted what I did.

There are dozens of variables that effect **what you are looking for!

Sure, I get that. I was looking more at an opinion on the product itself.

I don't remember RA having much information on them, but I'll look again.

To help brake the "Sound of Silence", I haven't used those struts but have used Monroe struts on other vehicles and have always been happy with the results.

On the PT, the best thing I ever did to improve the ride was put bigger tires on the back. I put on 215's rather than 205's on the back of my GT and it was noticeably smoother. Even my wife commented on it out of the blue. The low profile ties look cooler but the fatter tires appear to run smoother. If I had kept my GT I would have put 215's all the way around.

Of course, this is just my experience. There's going to be lots of variables that effect ride.

Let me at least ask what is RA??

Unfortunately the assumption on forums is that everybody knows every abbreviation and it is not realistically possible.



Every suspension part will affect the other, so the first thing before simply choosing a brand based on opinion is to ascertain the condition of your suspension and chassis.


I have already read some responses that can be highly debatable about the description of the results as well the varying components that may have been chosen to work together.
