whats are a couple GOOD brands for around a 6in lift, for my 82 jimmy?
Most people on here are going to tell you BDS or Tough Country. I have the BDS six inch lift. I have not been able to wheel it since I put it on. But everything fit nice, seems like a good quality kit. I went BDS for the warrenty and I could not find a Tough Country dealer up here.
I had tuff country lifts on 2 70s, 4" and 6" both rode well. I've had rough country and rugged trail and they lived up to their name.
As stated above,most will say T/C or BDS. I'm happy with Superlift,the price was right,still need to get rid of the rear blocks and put on a shackle flip.I won't buy Rancho,I broke a main spring a few years ago on another rig,what fun that was.
I am also going to say BDS or Tough Country if you are looking for a standard aftermarket lift. I personally consider BDS to be the best followed by TC.
I have TC all around on my truck and a good friend has BDS on his frontend. Both of us run 4" lift front springs. I have 1 bent TC mainleaf. He has 0 bent BDS mainleaves. We wheeled together on the same trails all the time and his trucks front springs always seemed to do better then mine. Not a huge difference in performance but his are a little softer and he has not bent a mainleaf yet.
If I was going to spend money on standard aftermarket springs I would buy BDS.
thanks for the info.
you guys rock
mines got bds its been good to me
Superlift for the price
Surprised no one said TC springs up front with 2.5 in. TC springs in the back with a shackle flip... I was lookin at BDS... seems a little steep price wise..
bds has the best waranty in the business
I did skyjacker springs on the rear of my k5 (6", had stockers and blocks). They ride great on the highway and flex like crazy on the trail. No complaints here.
SKYJACKER springs with PRO COMP shocks
