    What spring rate are you looking at? If 700# or so, then Yeah, its going to ride rough. Most coilovers are going to make the ride a bit firmer, as this is a characteristic of most any lift. However, you can find what the spring rate is and determine just how stiff the ride will be. FWIW Donahoe is now ICON. :)

    Kind of a vague question.

    How much lift are we talking and what kind of budget?
