    Does it feel good at freeway speeds? 75MPH No bad tendencies?

    Drives great at highway speeds, it is my DD. Although I think my tires need to be rebalanced.

    Great! I love the work and how clean it looks. Great work! One year and mine will start. Got to buy the house first, wife says so! Can't wait, another benefit for me is I can unlock the hubs and the front D-Shaft and the T-Case wont always be spinning at freeway speeds seeing as how mine was AWD so the front Axle doesn't disconnect. I get a front D-Shaft vibration over 72MPH. BTW your sliders look great as well!

    Probably... I dont think mine would be confused with another ST that has a SAS done.:) i am in St.Charles on the weekends when I go out and see my family, I live in So.County off Tesson Ferry. I always wonder when I see other Explorers/Rangers, etc on the road if they come here. I get alot of people pointing and looking at my suspension when driving around, seems like most people realize what i did.

    Ok, cool I might be undertaking another 2nd gen Sas but I want it to have at least rear sway bar for road driving also.

    Hey chad this is Jerry from the Sport Trac site. I'm considering doing a Long Arm SAS on my '03 in the next year or so, better or worse/ cheaper or more expensive to do that rather than doing the leafspring setup like yours? Whatta think? I will be doing no mudding, all trail riding and will bring it to moab in the future but it's gonna be my DD as well.

    The long arm setup is nice, and will flex alot better then mine does. I will eventually re-do my SAS and likely do a 3 link setup or possibly a long arm setup. You can also do a radius arm SAS as well and it works very well. Brad/Bronco2guy did a radius arm SAS and that thing was sweet. Cant believe he sold it.

    No updates from me. Work on the ST has stopped for awhile. It does just fine as it sits, so it will likely be when I get another vehicle and can park it for an extended period of time.

    I like the my XCAL2, but I have alot of other mods done to it as well. I would say it is worth it.
