    Right now I have 6" Superlift Super ride springs that I modified with Teflon pads. Who has run the 6" BDS springs?
    How do they compare? /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I think the bds work well but if you installed the Teflon pads I think they should ride very similar /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    I really doubt the BDS spring are gonna make that much of a difference. I've got 6" superides and hill shackles and it has tons of flex.

    I decided to go with BDS front springs. They have a softer
    spring rate than the Superlift springs. However I won't know until I ramp it and compare scores. Right now I score 882 frontwards and 973 backwards on a 20 degree ramp. I am
    going to make the ramp 30 degrees because I am only 12" from the top now. I will post the scores in a couple of weeks. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I will never buy another Superjunk spring. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif I have them on the front of my 89 and they flex well but with only about 3000 miles on them the driver side is sagging almost 1" more then the passenger side. I am planning on putting BDS springs all the way around on Donna's 90.
