      big difference in ride quality , you can "unlock" the slide a link for everyday driving allowing your springs to function properly again .

          Those assissin bars look like a nice unit but they don't look like they have the unlock feature the slide a link ones have 2 wrench's at the end of the day and your driving your car home in relative comfort , roll into the track push the car forward and back ten or fifteen feet to line it out lock em back down and go racing .

          nice , a former Mod here on FABO showed me those slide a link units on his Dart Sport swore they cut a couple of tenth off his 60ft and the nice thing was they are so easy to use plus you can get them set for straight and then tweak them to dial them in during test and tune , I personally am old school , SS springs and shocks from Mopar Performance and a pinion snubber , there's something cool and comforting about hearing and feeling that snubber thump the floor LOL !
