Pogo'ing solutions?

So the 2015 GT premium non PP is handling near perfect. However, it pogo's on the Yolo Causeway a bit. Steeda progressive springs, sways, extreme G k brace, strut tower brace, rear subframe braces. Factory non PP dampers. I'm sure it's the shocks/struts, but there aren't many options available yet.

What is "pogoing?" Sorry, not a helpful response, but maybe someone else can benefit from the answer too.

The new springs are over powering in the capability of the OEM shocks. You'll need to upgrade the shocks to match the springs.

I think you're talking about wheel hop and it's a very discussed issue for the 15 mustang. I've heard good things about steeda stuff that seems to help, that's the route I'm probably going to go.

I think the wheel hop happens when peeling out. I've never had that. I'm just talking about bounce. The springs are shorter and the stock dampers aren't designed to be smoothing the ride on uneven surfaces nicely with shorter springs. It's not horrible. My 73 Camaro w Koni yellows road nicer at speed. Got the ford racing struts/shocks coming designed for shorter springs. Truly excited to finish my suspension build.
