Off Road vrs Sport Suspension

Is there much ride difference between the off road tuned suspension and the sport suspension when driving on the road?

the sport is way softer. i test drove a sport and an off road back to back and the sport is much more forgiving on the road.

My friend's 07 sport felt the same as my 10 offroad so that's why I said its about the same.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The major differences affecting the ride are:
The Sport has a larger diameter sway bar, constant rate springs (Off Road has progressive), and the 17" wheels and tires.

When I started looking I test drove both... a DC O/R and DC LB Sport. I thought the DC LB Sport drove nicer on the road. Since my driving will be 75%+ on pavement I'm in the market for DC LB Sport.

Test drive them for yourself and see which one you like better.
