Got GAZ rear shocks from BAT Performance. They are REALLY nice. Anyway, have any of you guys run GAZ shocks? I was going to run these with the FRPP springs and FRPP dampers up front. These are adjustable and can be used with lowering springs. My rear is a little loose in the twisties and I'm thinking dialing these in will help it out. I'm thinking I may need to wait to install them until I get the matching fronts. Have any of you guys ever run mismatched dampers? Plus, I'm not sure if the fronts are compatible with the 08+. I think I'm going to give BAT a call tomorrow.

Isn't that what the Omni kit is for? To fit the older struts in the new cars?

OK I talked to BAT. The GAZ shocks are good up to the 05. So I'll need the Omni kit.

I'm not sure on the specs, but they feel stiffer than the FRPPs. The car sits a little lower than the FRPP kit.

I got the RS springs from a guy over on FJ. Somehow he got them from Ford of Europe. I wasn't running Koni's before, I had the FRPP kit. I have no complaints on the FRPP kit, but this set up is DEFINITELY an improvement.
