Hello everyone it's been about six months since i've been
I have a Titan 04 2WD, I don't plan on any offroad with this one, want a great ride and handling should I go with Radflo or Saws?? Suggestions are welcome on what else to put on the truck I have Gibson dual pipes and a MAI
that sounds great.
i have the Radflo OEM Replacements, and i love em! they ride better than stock i think, and they are alot cheaper than the SAWs,($739 vs $949) which is a big reason i got them. if your gonna pay almost $1000 for coilovers i would just get the CST 4" lift since you are 2wd know what i mean? Anyway hope that helped!
2006 Titan XE 4x4 (PRG 4" Performance package)
2003 Evolution VIII (358awhp/354awtq) that's on 91octane, 22lbs boost, stock turbo.
2007 GSXR1000 (not enough road to touch redline)

I like blue..... I think the radflo and saw are to close to call so i'll save a little with the radflo's.....Do you know if I can get the OEM coilovers
and the radflo rear shocks cheaper than the Gregs 2wd package deal???
I bought the a pair of the "new" RadFlo's from Greg a couple weeks back. They have a newly designed top hat and now have the same travel as the SAW's. After Greg and I spent some time looking at them side-by-side - I went with the Radflo's. The biggest difference between the two is that the coil spring is supported by the upper mount on the RF (which transfers the load directly to the frame), where the SAW transfers the load of the spring through the upper pivot/spherical joint, then to the upper mount and finally to the frame. (This should reduce the wear and noise of the upper shock mount of the RF, but only time will tell.) Additionally, there is a press-fit sleeve in the upper mount which allows for a repeatable "tight" connection between the upper shock pivot and the upper mount (the SAW's require a "shim" to make up for the manufacturing tolerances). All-in-all, The RF's just seemed to be a more robust design.
I did not get any photos prior to installing them (I was a bit too excited to get them in to stop and take pics) but I can take some pictures if anyone wants to see them. To summarize the ride, it feels like I am driving a marshmallow (especially because I went with the 600lb springs) regardless of the terrain (both in the city and in the dez).
Those that are interested should get into touch with Greg directly - needless to say, he knows MUCH more about these shocks than I do...
