    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    My 883's and 3rd leaf-less Dakars with 5100s all around ride pretty nice.
    Michelin LTX tires help, too.

    My 5100's on stock springs at OEM ride height is a huge improvement in comfort from stock. My stock ride quality was pretty harsh over bumps/potholes. My dealer initially screwed up my install but now that everything is installed correctly it truly feels like a Cadillac in comparison especially in the rear. If anyone is wanting to improve their ride quality to a softer more controlled feel and take away the harshness I highly recommend 5100's at stock height on OEM springs. :broccoli::kona::headbang::dancingbacon::jellydance::bananadance:

    I had a similar experience with OME coils on my last truck. Felt stiff as hell at first and then it grew on me and I actually loved the lack of body roll given by the stiffer OME coils --felt more solid and in control. Now that I have a stock truck again I can't believe how plush it is and I decided to stick with stock suspension (just lift spindles) this time around.
