    I finally found the part number for the 4" lift 56" BDS springs but can not find a spring rate listed anywhere for them. Does anyone know what it is.

    Part# is 001408

    Just trying to decide if I want BDS brand or the Tuff Country "HD" or "EZ ride"

    Matt.....Havn't heard of him in a while. I have been in his shop a few times when I was stationed In Great Lakes.

    See what he says about the spring rate and a cost for 2 of them shipped to 39565 please. Trying to balance $$ with quality thus no Alcans for me.

    Yea, I heard you mention that once before. I work at the body shop next door to him, so he brings all his customers trucks over for alignments. I usually see him like three times a week, so I will carry your info with me.

    Straight from BDS tech support.
    The spring rate of the 001408 springs is.......430 lbs per inch

    A little higher that I was thinking but everyone here seems to think that they ride well enough.
