Default Monroe Sensa Trac replacement - harsh ride now ?

Hey guys , any feedback would be greatly appreciated. ** I replaced all 4 shocks/struts with new Sensa Tracs about 14k miles ago on my 95 SE. Also replaced the strut mounts up front at the same time. I swear this thing is rougher when it comes to bumps and harsher roads. I almost feel like the old, wore out oe suspension took the bumps better. It seems to ride pretty smooth on perfect pavement but what gives ? I read on here that people had pretty good luck with the Monroe'* . ....any thoughts / ideas ? ...am I just crazy ?

It'* possible you were just used to the spongy ride of the old struts. Do you have touring ride/performance ride on your car? I know when I switch to touring it'* a smooth ride but I feel it bouncing. Switch to performance ride and I loose the bounce but feel the bumps more.
