Re: bwoodys came today!

I had Bwoody's and put stock end links back on. It cornered better with them but just not worth the trade off in ride... on anything other than smooth roads the ride is just too rough, plus they squeek over every pavement irregularity unless constantly greased.

I really don't mind the rough ride. With the 5100's and the SRT sway bars I love the way it handles I just want it to be a little better in the corners. Bwoody's should do the trick. Thanks for the input. Ill let you know how it goes.

Re: bwoodys came today!

You really cannot go offroad with B Woody's as well, another reason I removed them. The rears have no balljoint like the stock links, and the ride is really jarring, over any rough terrain and potholes, which are sure in abundance here in the rust belt. They just talk about improved cornering, and do not mention this notable tradeoff in their marketing.... a poor design IMO, just much better riding and a lot quieter and smoother with stock links.

Re: bwoodys came today!

theyll def improve the handling and body roll, i ran them offroad and it was some moderate offroading and they did ok- they do limit flex and i do think that any offroading will end up damaging the bushings as theyre not made to flex- as stated above.

keep them greased, those bushings get noisy

sprint booster? I did the line booster, I'm still planning on getting an SC tuner with the trans app, but for now it did make a noticeable difference.

Re: bwoodys came today!

Good to know. Sprint booster is something that speeds up the signal of your throttle and eliminates the annoying lag when you hit the gas. I have read many reviews and all are great.
