Ok, checked out the shocks, I have Bilstein RO-5516. Will have to check if these are soft or hard compression.

Can you check the length and compressed length too.

Well Kris that would be a tough one as they are on the car. I don't think I have much bounce at all. Does your front feel springy? Mine kind of feels very flat and stiff, if I compress down it doesn't want to spring back, I have to pull it up. I tried looking up those Bilstein numbers but can't find them. Also looks like the shocks rub. I'll take a photo when I get back home and post it.
