    OK, who has the best deals on BDS springs. I can get them locally but I'm looking for the best deal. I have checked their site and the links to dealers but I would rather have real world feedback. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I just called the nearest dealer which was in Monterey, CA. I called them told them what I wanted, 4" springs front and rear. They didn't have them in stock,so BDS sent me the springs from the factory for free. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Check out http://www.bucks4x4.com

    Thats where I ordered mine and they are some of the nicest people I've ever talked to. Even gave me some free stuff because my springs were a day late arriving /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Wayne,

    Try Elias 4WD Center http://www.elias4wdcenter.com/Qstore/index.htm/

    Lou is a great guy, very helpful and good service. Also you can not beat BDS warranty. I had a rear spring sag and they replace both with no questions asked.

    Not trying to hijack the post, but how do you like the BDS springs? I'm thinking of getting the 6". Any comments or tips?

    My previous lift was a 4" ProComp. There is no compairson between the two, the BDS have a lot more flex and ride 100% better, and as I said, you can't beat the warranty.

    Well since this is Donna's K5 build up I don't want to go to extreme. Here is the current plan-
    4" BDS front springs
    Shackel flip with 57's out back
    Very mild TBI 350 (hence your intake and cam /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif)
    Bowtie Overdrive 700r4 with a 241 (possible 4 to 1 kit in the future) with a SYE and 1350 CV shaft
    1 ton axles with 4:56's and both with lockers
    36" TSL Radial's on 15x8" US Wheel White Tracker wheels
    and the rest of the usual stuff.

    I know the Buck family personally. That is where I bought mine. 6" springs for $320, I got an even better deal on the rear 56" springs. All family owned business, very nice people. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Far and away better. EZ rides are junk IMO.
