    Ok, from what I understand BDS is probably about as good as it gets (by most peoples opinions). But is it to flexy for a daily driver? I'm getting ready to do 6"lift w/3/4axle swap will be DD and towing a boat mostly but do plan to wheel it, mud and trails no rocks. I've had a toyota before and know how fun/addicting wheeling can be. The truck will start off as a streetqueen but I have a feeling it'l head in the other direction in due time. Any opinions, main concern is how it handles on street. Thx in advance. :cool1:

    I had Procomp before my current BDS springs.and love them. They have a soft caddy feel to them. I also don't run a sway bar. You just have to watch your speed in the corners. ;) Also highway driving can be a fulltime job in the wind. :crazy:

    I've got 2.5" BDS springs on the front of my '82 K25 and it is not wallowy at all. In fact it handles pretty good. The ride wasn't as good as I expected, but it think that is beacause they made the springs too short and my shackle angle stinks.
