    alright read this whole post before you decide...i need to order 4 inch front springs,u-bolts,and bushings...my buddy has his own shop and is a bds dealer....basically 275 bucks after taxes...i just have to wait till next week cause in order not to pay shipping you have to have more than one order (or something like that)...he is gonna order a lift for his jeep next week....or i can get the tuff country ez ride kit from ord for 295 shipped....its only a diffrence of 20 bucks but i think its better to help a friend and wait then order now...what ya think...i also dont like that ords website says that the tuff countrys lose spring life and when i asked the woman on the phone today she couldnt explain that to me....

    seperate from the whole "help a buddy" thing... BDS makes good springs, and their warranty is the best there is. Get them.

    Go shackle flip and stock springs. Otherwise it's going to ride like a tank.

    Or buy good springs (tuff country or BDS) and it won't ride like a tank :D


    I have BDS springs and am very happy with them. They ride and flex very well. I have bent all 4 of them (because I have abused them this past 4 years) and will get them warrantied soon. If I had tuff countrys, I would have to buy new springs. Just my .02

    I snapped a TC EZ ride mainleaf last weekend. It was tweeked already but it snapped when I was going a little faster then I should have on a fireroad. TC has a lifetime warranty but you have to send them the spring to get them to replace it. Can you say expensive.

    If you break a BDS you drop it off at your local BDS dealer and get a new one no frieght not BS. My next set of front springs will be BDS for sure.

    Not if there is a local retailer.

    TC claims are at their headquarters, BDS claims are at their distributors.
