    Anybody run this? Good stuff or not? Good warranty and my fathers shop is a wholesaler so I can get it for a decent deal??

    Any opinions on this for a 4 inch lift?

    BDS is one of the best lifts out there. Great ride, good price, unbeatable warranty. Only other spring I would consider is Tuff Country EZ-rides.

    My BDS lift was stiff to start with, it seem much smoother now.

    I have 4" front springs on mine. I love them. They flex as well or better than some of the TC boys I wheel with. They ride nice too. Oh, you can't beat the warranty

    I've got 4" BDS spring on the front of my K5. They are really nice, but I haven't done much more than flex them on a wall in my front yard and with a jack yet. Hopefully I will wear them in and test them real soon.

    Sorry I need to check this more often. If you guys get me part number on what you REALLY REALLY want and prices you can get them I'll see if I can beat them. It kinda depends. He is a direct distributor so he should be able to get decent pricing but if there is an online source that sells a crapload at a DEEPLY discounted price it would not be worth the time to beat that price. You have to sell a certain amount to break even at a certain price etc.

    Actually he has directs with a few companies like J&J interprises, BDS, hide a hitch or something like that. He is trying to get direct with Mr gasket which would be sweet. Oh yeah he is direct with Gibson Exaust I KNOW I can get prices on those better then most. I've thought of starting an online but not sure of the demand and while I know LS1's and LT1's like the back of my hand the K5 is new to me /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    IF you are serious let me know there is alot that goes into pricing it. I may even be able to do a group purchase kind of thing if the moderaters will allow it but I don't want to break any sponsership rules.

    Bobby
