    Does anyone have hotchkis rear springs? Does it ride really stiff? I have edelbrock shocks on my 72. thinking about going back to the stock leaf springs because of the stiff ride! Any suggestions?

    I am running Hotchkis springs and their Bilstien shocks, and I would NOT describe the ride as being stiff. In fact I felt the front shocks could use a little more dampening on the rebound. But it is all relative really, I find the factory suspension in a 2012 Camaro to be stiff riding.

    I took Edelbrock shocks off my car and installed Koni classic's adjusted soft. The Edelbrocks handled great but in my opinion, are much stiffer than the Konis, especially in the rear.

    What about composites in the rear? Have heard those ride smoother. Wonder if anyone has any experience.
