    Would I be just as good with Skyjacker, Superlift, E-Z-Lift, etc... Instead of going through the extra trouble and $$$ for the BDS springs? I've had a truck with Skyjackers and a Blazer with Superlift. They were okay, but if there is better I wouldn't mind opting for it. What do you guys, and gals, think? And, yes, I've done the search, but I want to hear the lastest opinion. -Thanks!!!

    Yes they are. I am running the 6 inch springs up front with the 2.5 inch springs and a 4 inch shackle flip in the rear. I definately think they are worth the extra $$$$.

    Look around on BDS springs...there seems to be a large variance in prices on them. If all else fails, give these guys a call http://www.kens4x4inc.com They are local for me and had a good price. Since, I have recomended them to a couple other mebers here and they ordered from them. Had the springs dropped shipped from BDS and they were the cheapest they could find.

    In terms of other springs, Skyjacker soft rides aren't too bad. Superlift superrides also ride great, but I have seen some sag problems with them and have heard of quality issues
