    Good afternoon. Looking for opinions experiences, which do you prefer and why.

    Not running west coast so California legal doesn’t matter. I have the option to get either. They both have pros and both have cons. I’m not experienced much with either one, but I need to get one to be 3+1. Ran a quad for the last 6 years and I need to go 3+1 for a handful of states and loads.

    Using both as a driver the nitro booster is easier to set up, handle dips in the road and backing up better. But I feel for your application I would do the rigid bar. It’s lighter, less maintenance, and honestly easy to shim with a single pin-on.
     
    ElmerFudpucker Thanks this.
