Yes, but you'll lose the handling, which is the whole point in the Road & Track package. You can get the Touring Suspension which is like riding on a pillow, but if you drive aggressively you'll get unwanted body roll when cornering.

If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, a wolf. If you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens, a sheepdog. The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog, Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.
I'm a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the wolf.

if you didn't want a super stiff suspension, you should have gotten the R./T, R/T Plus or R/T Max....

the Road and Track, especially with the super track pack purposely stiffens up the suspension.

my regular R/T handles and rides great. it's tight, but not super bumpy, and very smooth on most roads.

Are you talking about in non sport mode? I dont feel a stiff ride in non sport mode, i think its a way a car should handle, hence BMW, mercedes. Lexus is you luxury soft ride car.

You can get a high profile tire - go to the 50 series - this will soften up your ride.

Better the suspension = less profile tire needed
Worse suspension ( like in the 60's) = more profile tire 70 series - helps to soften the ride and absorb crappy suspensions! but then again with 70 series you feel like you are on a cloud floating and no cornering ability!
