    Yup look on Their site and see how much it's a lot unloaded. Never had more than 900lbs in my bed and they still didn't sag. They have great flex. All clean no rust on anything even hardware

    With sway bar it's stiffer than stock but not much. Without it like now it's a dream, the truck is better in corners believe it or not. Off road I've had no issues with clearance. I may run this weekend too till I can make the swap.

    I had to do a touch of trimming but with 8" rims and my backspace the tire doesn't hit anything. The rear rubs more than the front without bumpstops

    Just saying it would probably be easier for him to straight swap struts/ springs than have to disassemble
