    ive got TC 4"ers but just want more travel. ihav to drive to most trails and i enjoy driving my truck to work some. do the 52's up there just kill drivability? i also have ram ass so death wobble shouldnt be an issue. any of you running these springs drive daily?

    i asked this question before, and some people said it would sway too much, others said it wasnt too bad. its all a matter of how much body sway you're comfortable with

    I'm curious on this too. Mine is not a DD but it does get drove on the streets quite a bit and has to be a DD when one of our other vehicles is down.

    I just put 52s on a couple a months ago and drive it every day to work
    definately nicer over bumps have noticed my steering is really easy now but that may caused by the newer steering box i put in
    So i would say no problems for use in a DD

    Mine sways quite abit but nothing that would stop me from driving it everyday, you will have to get used to it but its not dangerous or anything. I wouldnt suggest haveing a cup of coffe without a top on it
