Ok - butt in seat impression: Stock vs. Fox on road.
I noticed three things with the stock set up that initiated this change. The first was a see-saw effect. The second issue was noticed on bridges at speed while turning. The third was large bumps. The see-saw effect occurred usually while traveling in a straight line. It was felt as a back and forth motion in the neck area. It was as if the rear of the truck was fighting the front. The second was more disturbing. When going over a bridge on a turn I frequently travel, I noticed (or perceived) the front on the truck moving laterally when I hit the bridge joint. Large bumps off road were jarring.
The FOX set up has 75 miles on it, so take from that what you may. However, the lateral movement on the bridge turn is gone. The see-saw effect is perceived much lower in my back. This might indicate a smaller amplitude "vibration" or the suspension working more effectively -- like riding a horse. a new rider keeps his back stiff and gets whiplash. An experienced rider allows the horse to move under him flexing at the hips. Large bumps are still known to be there but the response is different. It is like a boat slowing down coming off plane. This is the point where the boat operator has to "goose" the engine to avoid swamping the engine in the swell. Large bumps seem to have a "swell" vs. a "throw".
I hope that helps. 'kind of a long post, but I hoped to use examples from other things that people might relate. Qualitative "perception" is largely personal. Everyone has a different butt.
