    I’ve heard nothing but good things about Sway A Way in the past. Not specifically the raptor shocks but for other vehicles!

    Sway-A-Way has been around for a long time. I too have heard good things about them, just not sure why they don't seem nearly as popular as Fox or King - maybe there's a reason?

    In any case they look great

    Back in the day there quality wasn’t quite there. They would leak out of the box and just had small issues. That was over a decade ago I haven’t heard really anything from them in a while but Justin from American trucks has them and gave good reviews. There’s a video on YouTube of him installing them.

    Ran them on my FJ and they were awesome. If I were to replace the Raptor coilovers they would be a contender.

    I ran SAW's for over 10 yrs on my last trk....never a leak or any issue and that trk was driven hard enough the rear shocks got so hot after a whoop section you couldn't touch them. They blew away the factory shocks, and for that application they added about 2" more front travel with aftermarket upper arms...I was very pleased with them...

    Those shocks had different valving then what came from Sway Away...the vendor had done extensive R&D and came up with a better valving package then comes from Sway Away....

    The question isn't if the SAW's are good, the question is the valving better then stock?

    Remember - Valving is King!

    Doesn't look like the Fronts are Compression / Rebound Adjustable, only height. They do use Eibach Springs though.

    I think I’m going w/ these when time comes to rebuild/replace stock

    I assume they make rears to? Anyone run adjustable/aftermarket fronts w/ stock rears?
