Better ride needed for 1999

I recently changed rims and tires to standard GT tire size 245-45 17.
I love the handling, however as you know the ride is stiffer. Does any one have suggessions to soften the ride a bit? Recommendations for shocks, springs etc is appreciated. Thank you.

Softening the ride

I did the same thing, bought GT wheels an tires and have noticed a big difference in ride stiffness between tire manufacturers. I had an off brand tire-dont remember the name, but switched to Falken Azenis 615 which is a much stickier tire but its also less harsh on the road. This is using the identical size 245/45/17.

It depends on you shocks too. You could buy a set of adjustable Tokikos or the like and be able to dial them in to you liking.
