I havent driven it much since installing,

PSA: I had to re-work the tire size in Forscan, its accessed by multiple perimeters in the TCU and PCM and didn't feel/drive right until i corrected it.

Just picked up my Raptor center caps and FX4 Gatorback flaps

How is the handling now with the bilstein? Do the 6112s on the front feel nptoceablyfirmer than the mushy stock? Do the springs feel up to the job with the extra weight of the diesel? I had 5100 s on my 16 lariat and while they were certainly an improvement they seemed to go soft pretty quickly so looking for something better for my 19 platinum PS. Looking for road oriented, not off-road. Already got the rear ARB to go on, need to decide on shocks. Will be running at stock height

Its firmer on the small bumps and cornering, while still being soft over the bigger stuff.. I am not 100% a fan but it was a good upgrade.

I feel for the road stuff it should be the opposite, soft on the small stuff and harder on the bigger bumps.

I have it set one notch from the top, I still need to do an alignment though.
