    I've got BDS 6" up front and 6" 56's in the rear and get tones of flex and excellent ride, great set up, it's my DD too.
    TC fronts flex a bit better than BDS(barely noticeable difference), but the BDS fronts are way more durable and will last much longer. And yes I've had them both.:saweet:

    Yup front shocks are in the stock location, rears are moved up on the axle.

    Couldent tell ya where to get bds springs because I'm in canada, but any 4x4 shop should be able to get them for ya.
