Konis are expensive, but they are rebuildable, and fully adjustable for rebound damping.
At stock setting, they were bouncy; I'm at ~2 half-turns stiffer than factory, and I really like it. (All my cars are V8)
I could probably drop it a bit, since the weather changed, but I'll probably leave it. I like to be able to read the paint on the pavement thru the wheel, lol.
I love the way these make my car feel.
The monroes were great for V8 stock replacement shocks. They are way too soft for sport springs. The gabriels were barely too soft for the sport springs. Each set lasted about 3 years, which works out to about 70k miles for me.
Tennessee does not have potholes, as a rule, so YMMV.
