No effect on ride quality or handling at all. They also work very well keeping the tires planted on wet pavement.

Here's an installation how-to:

The installation will vary by year model of the truck. For example, I didn't have to modify the brackets that sit above the axle, they fit my truck just fine without any cutting.
