I am swapping out the sport shocks for Rubi shocks. Is there a difference in the ride?

Shocks only, keeping my springs.

Did you do the swap? I’m planning to do the same but I want to know if there’s any difference in the ride that you felt...

Yes sir I swapped them. It feels perhaps a tad stiffer but not much.

One think I notice was I felt the front was higher. I know shocks cant add height but just the feel of these made it seem so.

It's a good move
