I have both, and I'm a site sponsor too. :) And I've got about any type of LCA as well. UMI's with roto-joint at the axle end, Steeda Billet Aluminum with sphericals at the axle side too.

I'd run the tubular bar. The solid one is stiffer than most folks need. It's rare the tubular bar gets run full stiff. :)

No need for the billet mounts. I assume you are talking about the...

The absolute worst for harshness are worn OEM dampers, followed by not so worn OEM dampers. :)

And now you know why I don't make, or use, or recommend HUGE rear swaybars, and certainly not without a massive front. You used a solid 25mm bar set full stiff. I make a hollow 25mm rear bar (very...

Some things to consider.

Don't skimp on shocks. That includes assuming...

As for the upper arm. I do uppers all the time....
