I think my shocks are the main cause for pain.  I'm
going to try and spring for a set of Koni's soon, hell
might as well do the coil overs to while I'm at it.  I
need to compensate for the extra weight in my trunk.
You know, the usuall tool box, amp, battery, 12" subs,
and tow strap all crammed into a type 89 trunk.  It's
recently also turned into my mini-garage for when I
have to work on the car in the parking garage.  Gota
love it.
