    Any comments on the Pro Comp 6" suspension lift, with full springs? I can get a deal locally, but I also don't want a suspension that will jar all the fillings from my teeth!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    By the way, 5 x 35" Pro Compt MT's on 16" streetlock tires are on the way - Now I have to make em fit!! I don't want to trim (much anyway).

    Mine are not too stiff, I've riddin in many rigs that were far more stiff. Save your money and buy BDS springs, much better ride and flex.JMO!

    I have their 4 inch front springs and I actually love the ride. Softer than stock but more truck like than softer springs. I even flex mine pretty good. Basically if your used to stock you will love them. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I emailed ORD for a price check through them. I know that Tough Country springs have a good reputation for a smooth ride and those guys have set up a few here at CK5. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I've never had Pro Comp, but I've been told it rides rough. I personally like BDS and Tuff Country. You may want to consitter a ORD 4" shackle flip in combonation with 2" or 3" springs in the rear, to go along with the 6" front springs.

    I would have that 6" pro comp kit you are thinking of. It rides rough but not as bad as some springs out there but not near as soft as BDS or TC. Pro comp is not worth it because they are expensive and there is much better stuff out there.

    Youre probably paying more for the name with pro comp springs than anything else. I highly recommend BDS springs. You can purchase them online for under $100 a spring pack. They ride very nicely, flex very nicely, and have a no fine print warranty/lifetime guarantee. Basically, if you are the original purchaser of any BDS product and it breaks, you get a new one period. Somebody on here broke a BDS leafpack on a rock while wheeling, they told BDS, and BDS sent them two brand new leafpacks (so the side that didnt break wouldnt be sagging lower than the new side.) Very good company.

    BDS- I've only seen that you have to buy it through an "authorized" dealer...

    TC - I'll see what ORD will do for a setup.

    Anyone have pics on a 4" lift and 35's - how much trimming necessary?

    THANKS!

    Im not sure of the website that sells them anymore, just ask around on here and I know that somenody can tell you. Or you can go onto BDS's website and find a dealer near you. I bought mine from a 4wd center near my house and paid $98 a spring pack.
    Mouse- Cant there be an authorized BDS dealer who sells online??

    I've had a few brands, and currently have these. They BLOW. Get something else, even if it cost more.
