    Default Impact of rear shockabsorber on Strong or loose drive feel

    I want to ask a question from experts, doest setting in rear shockabsorber gives you strong or loose control feel on your car drive. I have Honda Civic VTI 2003.
    I had an experience yesterday. After shocks repairs my car was giving a very strong control feeling on the drive. After driving a month i realized that rear shocks should be more accomodative in case of suddden jumps etc, so i went to the mechanic and shared my opinion/feel with him. He said that he has done its settings as per its original/genuione specifications. But i insisted that i want my rear shocks to be more and more comfortable to the the passangers sitting on back seats. He unscrewed the shocks and i don't know what he did and installed them again. Now what i feel is the loose control on drive, my steering has become very soft and i feel as i have not good control on the car. Can anyone explain what is all this about??? I have also CNG installed. there are spacers on the back shocks. I just refilled the CNG tank and observed that i have a better control on car. What is this all about or it is just my "waham
    "

    Soft or hard it doesn't contribute to comfort or handling you have a pos civic drive a real Honda civic the double wish bone ones had quite hard suspension compared to your civic but it was ten dozen time better in comfort compared to your civic by making suspension soft you have allowed suspension for more travel which means more camber on rear BTW I wrote a complete blog on old Honda vs now but it was declared not interesting by editorial department
