I'm looking to make my ride somewhat smoother on Michigan's "roads"... I've gotten new tires, Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring as I do a lot of highway driving, (Set is about 1 year old with 3k miles). My car currently has about 50k miles on the OD. I'm looking at getting Monroe OE or KYB Strut-Plus. Not sure what to get or if there are better options out there. Thanks!

Might want to share your current vehicle details. Model/year/trim and wheel/tire sizes. Sport models and bigger wheels have stiffer rides.

Sorry. It's a 2014 SEL V6 with 18in rims.

either go all OEM or consider airbagging the suspension for customizability.

 

Firmer options are available from KYB and Bilstein, but could get a bit much on choppy roads.  Coilovers would fare even worse.

 

I cringe at potholes in our area, even with OEM height suspension.  Lowering springs would enhance the driving experience, but not where I am at, and certainly not where you are.

I've just learned to live with the stiff ride of my 2011 SEL but I do keep my tires right at 31 PSI which helps quite a bit.
