<< Was it fun? Nope. Leaving the driveway, there was all of one inch of
 suspension travel left. It actually didn't ride as bad as it sounds.
 There was one point over a newer concrete section (thumpa-thumpa-thumpa)
 that the frequency was just right to pound the bump stops pretty bad. >>

Try some urethane bumpstops in back. I got a set for the rear that are about
1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. They do require drilling a hole up into the frame
though, as the factory monster rubber stops clamp around the frame. These
urethane bumpers give you a good 1 1/2 to 2 more inches of travel (a guess).
 Comes in very handy if you lower the rear AND have to haul or tow; in fact
I'm going to pick up a GTO 389 rebuild tomorrow!
