Rained a lot and the trails were greasy and muddy as could be. From what I could tell the ride improved. I couldn't get to aggressiveness with many jumps, but the ones I did hit the landing was smooth. And no front end dragging the bottom on the landings. With the oem, if I had my weight forward when landing the nose would rub. So I'd say there a great improvement over stock, and they don't set you back to much cash if you find a deal on a set.
