    I am going to be ordering some new front lift springs to replace my Pro-Comp 6" springs...The ProComps are cheap but they are STIFFFFFFFFF...So should I go with BDS or Skyjacker...Lets hear the praise and curse towards each springs..../forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I love the BDS, even w/ dual shocks all around theyre still smoother than other lifted trucks ive ridden in. Only curse on em is price, i dont remember exactly what it was but it was about 100-200 more than others.

    i had 6" and 8" skyjacker's (softride).
    i liked the ride on both, both where better riding than my friend's with 6" superlift and 6" rough country.
    i also had dual shock and they didn't.

    I run 6" Skyjacker Softrides (with Skyjacker Nitro shocks) and I love them. I don't know about extreme flex, but they seem to flex OK for moderate hills/rocks. They ride great (compared to other lifts I have had/experienced). I have never heard anything bad about BDS springs, and would probably purchase a set....if they weren't about $75 a pair more than everything else.

    I've got 4" Skyjackers with no complaints. Decent ride considering.
