As far as the ride... It's definitely much firmer and rides just fine on normal, flat road conditions. But! Any good dip or bump, you'll feel for sure. Shocks bottom out easily.
Long story short... I will be ordering struts/shocks ASAP.
I have installed just the fronts 3 weeks ago, including trimming the bumpstops, and I find the ride fine. I have no plans on upgrading my shocks unless the ride becomes too bouncy. When I have time to install the rears, maybe my opinion will change.
