I have a 1987 Interstate and have a set Progressive 416 shocks and have been trying to find the right air pressure combination for a less harsh ride with two up. I also have a set of Progressive springs and new seals in the front. Are the stock shocks a softer ride and should I rebuild them ?

Some people find the Rear Progressives too hard. Lowering the air pressure will help a bit overall but it isn't a perfect solution.

Reducing the setting on the 416 might be better than reducing the air in the other shock. What have you got it set to now?
