    I second what shaggy said. They are some pretty soft springs. I was deciding between the tuff country ez's and BDS, but went with the BDS myself. I think you will be very happy with the ez's though. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I was thinking of ordering some 6", 56" rear EZ ride springs. I do know that soft-rides settle, noticeably.

    i was haveing probs desiding between tc bds or atlas springs. i might got atlas cause i talked to the gent that makes them and they are made about an inch higher to copensate for when they finally do sag. so if you were to order a 6 inch lift i believe the springs would be about 6 1/2 7 inches of actual lift. still trying to deside though. any body here use the atlas springs or is this a bds tough country croud /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
