    My system is weighing down the back of my car. What can I do?

    I had a Chevy Malibu and now I'm in the middle of Transfering my system over.
    In the Malibu I noticed my rear was significantly lower than other malibus. So much so that you felt every bump in the road.

    Is getting heavy duty or truck /shocks/struts for the rear an option?

    In the trunk I have:
    DC XL 15s weigh 56 bls each
    Kenitik battery weighs 70 lbs
    Enclosure? I'm getting around 70 as well, maybe a little more.
    pushin a Mmats 3500 so I need the second battery.

    Please let me know what I can do to solve this issue besides downgrading my system. That aint happenin.

    It's definitely an option, and a lot of people have to (especially people with walls). Check out some prices on nice springs, and see if you've got the budget for it (assuming that the problem is bad enough to be worth the money to you).

    I would advise you to get air bags for your rear suspension. Thats the best solution and cost conscious way to go imo. Check out Airbagit.com

    WOW. How does that even work? I'm not knockin it, it just sounds funny. You mentioned it's cost conscious, well mclerico83 just showed me a pair of springs that can raise my car about an inch or more depending on the age of the car for $130.00. Is it cheaper than that?

    There's a video on the site that shows how to replace your current suspension with their kits. No it cost more but will last longer and provide a better feel when driving than a cheap set of shocks.
