    Would like to know if they ride as good as factory or better or if you wished you would have done a shackle flip and less spring for a better ride.

    I am running 6" TC EZ Ride rears and they seem pretty good. They are a nice firm ride but not harsh at all.

    I am running a BDS 6" all spring lift. It is better than stock and 100% better than the 4" ProCrap Lift I previously had.

    I have BDS 6" rear springs. I think they ride better without shocks than my stock springs with crappy Heckethorn shocks did. The warranty is great, and they seem to flex ok, but I haven't wheeled them hard enough to lift a tire as of yet...but soon. :D

    I do kind of wish I had just done a shackle flip, but my stock springs were trashed anyway(Broken main leaf :blush: ) so...
