Stock BA Pursuit shocks

I'm interested to hear comments from anyone re the stock shocks on their BA Pursuit. I found my rears way too hard, ok around town but far to loose over bumpy back roads. I know the ute is designed to carry a load but unlaiden it is pretty scary. Lets face it, who buys a Pursuit to carry a load ALL the time?? Front end is ok.

I ended up replacing the rears with Bilstein items and now it is superb\ and it can still carry a load.
Only prob, the front then felt quite loose, so of to Mr Bilstein again and whoa, the monster has been transformed!!

Re: Stock BA Pursuit shocks

seems stock shocks in falcons are always pretty soft unless u get an xr, i think the best line i heard here was someone referencing the fairmont suspension to a yact coz its so floaty.
