Rear with no weight in the bed. It is a much smoother ride with some weight back there. Without the weight the ASS sticks way up in the air like a dog wagging it's tail.

These sliders are very easy to install. My 12 year old daughter helped me lift them into place. 3 mounting points and 6 bolts per side. Took about an hour.

Do the UCA's have a dust cover on the top?
