Does anyone have rear shocks that hit the ground sort of hard when they run over a man hole? Recently put some kyb gr-2 shocks in but it seems a little hard on the ride. Ive got a gti gls 1.8t

i hit bumps in the road and i feel like my car is going to break apart.. The stiffer you go, the worse it gets..especially with no dampening.

Those are not adjustable Damping, so are you on stock fronts or stock springs?
