Hi RSRacer,

I do like the GC/AGX suspension as well. I haven't messed around with raising/lowering it much yet, have you?

I'm currently running the AGXs at 1 front/3 rear and my wife doesn't complain about the ride, but will probably try them at 2 front/5 rear this weekend...

I have 10" springs all around, 250 front/200 rear. I'm not into hardcore auto-x or tarmac racing, just wanted more stiffness, less body roll, and the adjustability. I did 75 miles on smooth to moderately rough gravel in WV two weeks ago, and the suspension felt good.
I was getting some rattle or light banging from one of the rear corners, but it seems to be diminishing. Did you notice anything like that?

I know this is off-topic, but hey RRinDC - I live around DC too. And my 2.5RS has the Ground Control/KYB AGX suspension as well. Very nice setup, don't you agree?

I am running 8" 340lb ERS in the front, and 8" 250lb ERS in the back. I really should get some 280-300lb springs for the rear, tho. What springs are you running?
