    rough country is the stiffest spring on the market. super lift "super rides" are pretty soft i like em. tough country makes the softest spring out there, you can get them at ORD for a good price too.

    Just by yourself a BDS lift, you wont regret it. IMO, it rides the best out of RC and Superlift

    I have the Tuff Country lift... and love it. They rate the softest, so nice and flexy and if you buy a set of adjustable shocks you can stiffen them up if you need.

    The problem with stiff springs is no matter what you do, they will always be stiff... even with soft shocks, you still have a hard spring. Just my .02

    I've had my rough kuntry 4in all spring lift on for about 4 months. It sat level when installed and I'll swear the rear end sags about a inch and a half more than the front. you can actually see it when you look at the truck. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Another thing, you cannot beat the BDS warranty, if you are the origianl owner and if the springs sag, warp or break; they'll replace them no questions asked.

    After a offroading run, I warped the springs when I max flexed out the suspension. Made a phone call and got TWO rear springs, no questions, no problems /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
