my rig is in my signature...it's a '14 XL...
the shocks won't take out the rocking...they make the ride smoother over rough roads...particularly the chatter and rattle you get in the dash and front windows. changing over to the shocks too almost all of that out except on the very worst of roads.
the front and rear road master sway bar upgrades made a huge difference on with the top heavy feel and the effect of a broadside or quartering wind....they are 1.75" thick (stock is 1.5"), use a poly bushing that is lubed (vs. rubber that wears on the stock ones), and the rear one connects the rear springs to the frame and is used in conjunction with the stock one, so you get two sway bars in the back vs. one.
if you can swing the $$$, the road master sway bars are awesome. ain't cheap (do it yourself for say $1500 or so, i paid a shop $2100 to do it for me). but worth it IMHO.
