In all honesty - I wouldn't
I view reaffirming as very little to gain while giving up all of your leverage. You've been granted a get out of jail free card. You NEVER know what the future holds and while gamble with that??
If you want to see credit progress - give it time with the right lines of credit and such - you'll gain just as much as reaffirming.
Patience is the key in all of this. I struggled with the same thought process and same situation.
