Re: First performance mod complete

You'll be sorry. I am sure you know you've probably just opened a big can of worms. Let the MODDING begin!! I've been a little over a year and a half and I am almost done....new cam in a couple weeks and SRT wheels when I wear out the tires, and I am done.....I think.

Re: First performance mod complete

If you're going to do sways, I'd recommend you do them both. It handles like it's on rails then. Added price isn't that much more and the front is an easy install.

Re: First performance mod complete

^^ really you think the front is worth it? I just did the rear SRT8 sway bar and the bilsteins back there too and it feels great on corners. I'd think anymore and I'd lose some comfort for barely any more turning potential?

Sorry for the thread jack!

I'm thinking about adding a front sway bar but as hemi57 stated I don't want to loose too much comfort to slightly better handling. I wanna see how the rear improves the ride first

Re: First performance mod complete

rear bar was a PITA. Although would have been 10x easier if I wasn't trying to install the new one backwards, lol. If I did it again it wouldn't be too hard, just a pain.

Can you give some more info on "a difference for the better"? It'd mean a lot coming from you since you've got the same badass tires I have. Also, what's the product name? Thanks!

Re: First performance mod complete

Yea i love these tires so far. Got a good deal on them and are good for the type of driving that i do. The shocks are bilstein heavy dutys. from what I notice cornering is slightly better but def. not a huge improvement. That will come more with the sway bar I think. The biggest difference I notice is that the back end is more planted over bumps. With the stock shocks the back end was bouncy and sloppy on rough roads.
