    Can't tell ya a whole lot, but it's understandable why the ride is rough.

    The springs, can't really tell, but are the ends squared off? The leaves, they are pretty thick also, don't really lend themselves to smooth ride. Also, don't see any teflon pads on the springs; those will help out alot. Also look at the spring clamps, once those springs get compressed just a tad, they'll be riding against those spring clamps and that will limit your spring movement. Good springs will have a clamp that is a long l_l with a bolt through the top. The BDS 6" rear spring sitting in my living room right (forgive me, I am redneck, but I have a full garage and have a new dryer coming on Monday that has to traverse that full garage) has a spring clamp that has the bolt at least 1/2" above the spring. These springs have a real good rep for smooth riding.

    As for the shocks, can't tell make or anything other than they suck. If ya want to make your rig more pimp'in for the desert, start shopping. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    By the way, does triple steering stabilizers really help that much? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    4" lift, brand unknown. Get rid of the double shock setup and the triple stabalizer.
