Inherent with any front spring lift will be a stiffer spring rate, have you run other shocks with this lift? My point being that I am not sure that my stiff riding truck isn't as much the higher spring rate as it is the kidney busting white tube nitrogen charged shocks.
Further, how do these Bilstien 5150s perform off road? While my white tube shocks performance on the black top stops just short of making me pee blood, they do absorb my off road jaunts pretty nicely. So for that reason, I have kept them in place.
After $200 in ball joints, getting my a$$ kicked by a hydraulic press, and the labor involved, I leave jumping my truck to the DBs on You Tube.
