Default Air Suspension Link Swap

I've been thinking about buying some adjustable air ride links for my '14 Limited. While doing some research I came across a few posts where folks have swapped their stock front sensor links with the rears and achieved a 2-2.5" lift so I tried it out and sure enough it worked. My front/rear heights before were about 36.5"/38.75" and now they're at about 38.75"/41." I couldn't find much info on prolonged performance other than OR1 and OR2 modes may give error messages. I've driven the truck two full days with it like this (in normal mode) and the ride quality hasn't suffered. Off-road modes 1 & 2 are a different story. I didn't receive any error messages for the air ride but the ride was unbearably choppy in both settings. It seems like my normal setting now is like the old OR2 and entry/exit is more like the old normal and I'm fine with that. I don't wheel my truck over any crazy terrain. Does anyone have any long-term experience with this mod? Like I said, the truck still rides great in normal mode with the links swapped and she looks even better! Now I'm starting to think about new wheels since I potentially might save 300 bucks

Some people swap them - Some get errors, some don't.

Just be sure to get an alignment now if this is where you are going to keep it.
