AFE Sway-A-Way 2.0 Rear Suspension

Anyone use this rear setup on a 5th gen? Someone is selling locally, and I do need new rear suspension. Couldn't find any reviews or threads about this setup on the forums. Thanks for the input!

Why do you need a new "rear suspension"? Springs don't go bad (in the old days they would sag, but not on modern cars). The only reason to replace the springs would be to have a different spring rate or load carrying capacity.

If your shocks are bad, just replace those which would cost a lot less than replacing the springs.

SWAY AWAY has good stuff. Back in the day they had rust issues, not sure if AFE fixed that.

Right now I have a 3" Front / 1" rear spacer lift and it has served me well but I can feel the rear shocks starting to go out. Figured this rear setup might be a good replacement, especially since someone is selling locally at a deeply discounted rate.
