    hey im a street queen, ask thezentree lol, anyway, yeh it does ride firmer than a single shock, but i like it cause it is a little firmer, doesnt have the lifted truck bodyroll alot do, and seems to have overall better control.

    I ran a single front for a while, but the bumpsteer seems much worse. The duals calmed it down. My springs are stiff which may be the cause.
