Definitely a worthwhile upgrade.
I did Race Tech springs up front during the snowy season last year and am pleased with the results, but I don't understand what a rear-shock upgrade will do for my ride. What are the bad behaviors that result from a crappy rear shock? Thanks for enlightening me, I am suspension ignorant.
