Ride is superb. I hop a curve and didn't feel that "boom" sound when the truck drop except when the rear end dropped. Haha. Rear next.

I also removed the sway bar like Pops, man it still ride awesome AND my turning radius is back. After the procomp lift my turning radius was wider so making a u turn was not as easy as it was with stock height.

Sweet, aren't they? When you get put them on the rear it won't even feel like the same vehicle.

yeah it is. i want to hop and drive thru all potholes now. LOL the rear is definitely my next priority. i was thinking of getting headers and exhaust but after these I want to finish up the suspension first.

Thanks Bob for leading the way and helping me spend my money.

Yea be careful of the potholes etc until you do the rear, I broke one of my LCAs awhile back by hopping a curb. -lol.... Headers become a whole another money expense... I picked them up cheap from another member and I still have to buy Catted B-Pipes if I want no CEL. So that'll be another $350.

You forgot about uprev tuning if you are going the whole headers/b pipe exhaust route
The tuning shop quote me 600. =/

I'm not messing with Uprev that's a waste of money for me.

As fow SAW -vs- Radflo they're about the same SAW is a big company where Radflo is starting to boom from being a small family owned company.

Wouldn't the Armada get check engine light without UPREV if we install headers and hi-flow cats? Somebody correct me please.
