The truck will ride better than stock for sure as the bilsteins are a better quality shock and will do better over the bumps and everything else. Just make sure to get it re aligned after the install
not totally true, for small/mild towing and hauling your right, but for the guys who really work these trucks, with 1500 lbs in the bed or towing 6k or more, the rake is there so when the truck is loaded down it still sits level and still has very positive steering and control. when the truck is level to begin with, and you load it down, it leans back, taking weight off the front of the rig and just all around making it look like a horrible/improperly set up tow vehicle, also has negative effects on steering etc.....so its a mod for some, and not others, one thing ive seen on this forum, is many people have trucks and dont seem to ever put them to work 95% of the time, i supposed that is where this mod comes in handy.
