There is no dampening left in the rear shocks.  IE: all the gas or fluid in
them has "blown out" due to a seal failure.  They are covered in "fluid"
with lots of dirt and debris accumulated on the shock body.  The previous
owner who installed them and didn't keep a reciept, didn't put the dust
boots back in when he reinstalled the shocks.

The springs in the car are stock, i'd like to put something firmer in.

Sorry about the message subject line, when replying from gmail it doesn't
give me an option to change it.  It's really not that big of a deal.
