    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.

    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.
