    Allright guru's, I've got a couple questions. Anybody here using the BDS 4" suspension lift, and if so, how do ya like it? I'm leaning towards the Rough Country 4", but I want to do my homework before deciding. If ya got any comments about either, let em fly!
    Also, is anybody using the Heckethorn dual steering stabilizer kit? How well does it perform? Thats all the questions I've got for now- Thanks in advance for the help!

    I gotta a 4" BDS lift and I really like it... FYI these thing do sag in the rear so you might even go with a 4" front springs and 5.5" rear springs.

    the springs ride incredible, but do NOT buy the BDS shocks.

    Jeff if they sag contact the company. They will take care of you. Yours are relatively new, right?

    well I have a 6" BDS lift and it rides awsome! I have riden in rough country trucks and I will say if you want flex for get them. They are a pretty harsh ride and stiff spring. My only bad thing to say about BDS is don't get the shocks... they suck canal water. Also no matter what lift you buy you will need approx. 1 to 2 " more lift in the rear to accomidate the topper weight.
