If you spent as much time replacing worn-out shocks as posting ideas for crazy experiments your harsh ride would be fixed already. Spoiler: removing the shocks entirely won't improve the ride quality. You're not far from that as things stand today.Am happy with the cars I have. May try just removing the rear shocks and see how it drives (have done before, no big in a tight suspension. Developed race cars with zero rear roll resistance before worked well to transfer weight forward in a FV. Believe it or don't.
