    BDS or Tuff Country EZ Rides (non-HD's) I have the TC EZHD's in my truck and they are not EZ riding like they say. It rides pretty stiff. It has broken in some but not alot.

    alcans do kick azz. Deavers to. I am pondering running alcans in the rear of my k5 in combination with large RE joints. Lots of flex capability and prolly a little more predictable than my stock 52s + revolvers + shack flip.

    I took out the second leaf from the bottom and put a quick disco swaybar kit on there which helps even out the angle misalignment of the sway bar with a 4" lift and it rides so much better now.
    I think just the sway bar kit would help a lot.

    I throw my sway bars in the scrap pile so they can make nissans from them.
