	Back when R1s were not so stiff, my co driver found that they 
worked with higher pressures than normal, so don't be too alarmed.

	When you are dealing with very stiff shocks, they tend to 
augment the springs a little, adding to the overall stiffness of the 
car.  Your front end is bouncing against the shocks.  I found the same 
thing - the shocks need not be too stiff.

	Are you going to the Saginaw Cen-Div (or did I already miss it?)
