    Thanks! I am assuming doing your way will keep road ride closer to stock, but give the better bottom out performance off road as stated in description? Looking forward to hearing anyone with FX4 on ride quality of the SVC on and off road after using for sometime.

    Received my collars in the mail yesterday and I'm going to install them on Thursday. I have a crew cab Lariat with the FX4 package. I'll chime back in on here once I get things in and settled. Right now, I'm sitting all stock with the wheels and tires. I have a set of fifteen52 Traverse HD's with 265/70 tires on the way (+/-0 offset which will push the wheels and tires out about an inch and a half). So I'll also do some more write-ups on that, as well.

    Have not driven it a ton yet, but not sure what exactly it is yet, but feels a lot better. Will update in a few day.

    I will be curious to hear what you think the ride is like on stock wheels and tires.

    Just placed my order for the collars . Pretty excited for what awaits. However the site says free shipping, but it did not carry over to my order.

    Looking forward to getting them though.

    Did the alignment end up being off at all?

    Honestly...I still have not aligned it....but yes it is off. My tires are starting to show a little abnormal ware, so I need to get it done this weekend and I'll rotate the tires.

    My alignment was off. Mostly the camber was a little on the positive side and the toe was off quite a bit.

    Is anybody getting any front suspension chatter going over small bumps at lower speeds? After I installed my collars and insured everything was torqued down, I'm getting rattles from both sides. Yes, the isolators were installed, too. I'm not sure what's going on. I even went through every nut and bolt to make sure everything was tight. Could it be that the springs have more preload and the suspension is too stiff now? I'm perplexed. It sounds like both of my shocks are blown out.

    Check your say bar link bolts. I had a lot of trouble getting them to stay tight. Almost did locktite.

    Are you talking about the ones that bolt to the spindle? Or the ones that go from links to sway bar?

    Check both sides, but I had problems at the spindle.
