    It's pretty simple. Dont run heavy ass ton springs on the car. no matter what the setup is. If you run a 2 or 4 or even 1 ton spring it should ride like ass.

    1 ton precut springs in the rear with or without shocks and 2 3/4 ton on front on a gbody actually rides pretty good. Only reason i switched the rears to 2 ton is to sit lower. Didnt notice a difference at all between the springs with having accumulators. Currently I'm running 4.5 tons in front & 3 turns of 2 ton coil with accumulators in back and laid out in the front has the car riding just as smooth. None of that harsh riding bouncing out of control doing 45 on the highway like ive seen on some cars.

    Pretty similar to what you posted minus the shocks, instead of using a cup, we had some pipe that fit the spring perfectly.

    Or ya that, I'd imagine accumulators is the way to go . That's the route I'm going.
