I installed my new aFe Sway-away Shocks over the weekend. What a huge difference they made. My old Foxes were shot and these really work well. The installation was not terrible, the fronts are more challenging than the back by a long shot but everything is together and tested. The only real problem I had was from the crappy factory lug bolts. The chrome cover was sticking in my socket and I had to replace all of the lug nuts. A trip to the local auto store and I was good to go.

Has anyone else gone this route?

Yup, did it last year. IMO they are too stiff, makes the raptor feel like an F250, and the finish hasnt held up that great but they still look decent. Looks like we might have similar trucks.

I have a set of Sway A Way on my 150.
2.5” with external reservoirs. Ive been very happy with them, they did settle just a bit after about 20,000 miles but not bad. I’m cowing up on 50,000 miles on mine and so far no leaks or issues. I will be rebuilding them soon and may go to a slightly softer compression side at that time. But otherwise they have been a solid choice.

I agree, they are indeed rather stiff. I think it will be fine though. I don't have a good comparison since I have not driven my Raptor with good functioning Fox shocks on it.
