Bertha is on a distinguished road
I have some money to spend.

Torn between upgrading to srt8 sway bars and srt8 pedals or getting a flashpaq 3872 for my 05 5.7L. Next move is probably an ome lift but sort of want to do something sooner to improve her. What do you guys think?

Re: I have some money to spend.

Pedals won't help the performance or handling, but the sway bars and tuner will make a big difference in both. Really though, it just depends on what your priorities are. Personally, I'd go with the sways and tuner. I know how much difference they make, since I've done both. Also, if you get the SC Tuner, consider the Advanced Transmission Tuning Application (about a $40 add-on), as it helps make the lame 545RFE transmission a whole lot better than it is in stock form.

I have done both. However I did the bilstein struts and shocks, front and rear sways bars first. then the tuner. Both are a must have IMO. Unless you need to do anything with suspension I would do the tuner w/ the trans app. It really woke up my 09 4.7.

X2. The Bilsteins make almost as much difference as the SRT sways. Kman did it in the right order too. IMO, it makes a complete suspension package.

I have the bwoody end links I'm putting on to. This is also a good upgrade.
