Now that my car is lowered for the last year or so I find it a little bouncy or boingy at times I do scrape sometimes and I have stock headers. I purchased bilstein B8 rear shocks and struts for lowered cobra ,have not installed yet just wanted to know if anyone here has installed them and do I notice or feel a difference with them to tighten up the bouncy. Roads here are garbage couldn’t imagine I had headers .
I have iso all around except front tops .

My original Bilsteins seems to be fine on H&R Race springs. It's super stiff but nothing out of the ordinary based on the springs I'm running. B8s I'm sure will be a nice upgrade for you though.

What springs are you running?

B8s, race springs, and all the isos here.
It really depends on what you're comparing the ride quality to, but I personally think it rides just fine. It's firm, but not to the point where you're worried about your teeth rattling out of your mouth. Now that I'm comparing it in my head, it's smoother than the stock Fiesta ST or Focus RS ride.

My cobra on stock Bilsteins and race springs rides WAY better than my 2001 GT with B springs and KYB Oranges ever did. It’s like a Cadillac compared to that ride.

Totally agree on what you’re comparing it to.

B8s and h&r race springs with all isos, rides a lot smoother than the previous stock bilsteins with cut springs
