What are you running for settings ?

I was running 3 all around for awhile but cranked it up to 8/6 now. I find the stiffer settings to feel the road more but take the impact away from potholes/bigger bumps better.

Not enough to justify the hassle of doing it.

So, better shocks will definitely improve the ride but how about the dive when braking?

I found these shocks (Rancho 9000XL) have improved the ride quality and don't have any issues with dive when braking. They appear to be well made, I am very happy with the results. I have tried different settings with the shocks, front end set at 6 and rear at 7 (this was a change made today before a 150 mile cruise).
