i've been told if you do over axle, you need to run sleeve bags or it will ride like shit. i was gonna do over axle but changed my mind to do the 6 link. yes its more expensive but i heard that it rides better than a cadillac :head:

Could you please explain the positives and negatives of both your choices. also could you go into detail as to why you feel each is better for each situation?

haha alright.

postivies for f9000 behind axle is load carry capibilities. Can tow more with this setup than the truck is rated for, and its rides great with cheap shocks.

positives for 6 link is will lay any wheel tire up to 295/35/24, gets good lift....and ride good with the correct shocks. Also its bolt on and has some sort of warrenttee.

negatives for f9000 is they need to be limited on compression and when they expand. So you use your frame for the limit on compression and shocks to keep them from over extending. Also an f9000 setup is completly fabbed up, fabricator takes liability.

negatives for 6 link is they cant tow and need semi expensive shocks to ride right IMO. You also need a different axle centering device as the panhard blows, and tears the frame. The bolt on watts its cool though, pricey but cool.

So if your not going to tow I'd go 6 link for sure.

seriously pushed more to the side of a bag over axle. it sounds just as good and cheaaper. i know cheaper is most of the time not better but in this casse facts show that 6link and a bag over axle about equal out correct?
