I honestly dont/didn't like mine much a little too soft for me in the rear and a little too stiff in the front. But that's probably my heavy ass coils .

Eibachs are 620lb coils, and with the 5100's ride smoother than factory.

How many leafs did u have when u thought the rear end was soft?
Coils I believe are around #548 they are 883s, rear had a 2" aal on the stock pack. Regardless I'm happy with my 5150s and expos. I'm not trashing the 5100s, they are a quality shock and are a good alternative to coilovers and the like.
