my 07 had worn factory struts when i bought it, so it was hard to judge compared to stock, but i Love the ride after. I dont think its to firm at all. rides great. I went top ring all the way with mine. Which made the front end sit up a smidge. after about a week of it like that i added a 1" block to the rear which added a slight rake. Im happy with it but to many leaving the front up would be fine. hands down though the best $200 bucks u can spend. if ur lazy spend the extra $150 and get the Rancho setup that comes with new coils and has adjustability. makes install much simpiler for the do it ur selfer. btw pro comp should have their adjustable ride hight strut out by the end of April. I spoke with them on the phone and theirs sounds pretty promising as an alternative to the 5100.
