    After a few people replied to my earlier posts about recommended suspesions, I found a BDS dealer relatively close, ~150 miles. I emailed him for a kit and price. Heres how the shop relied:

    "Cost would be $995 for the kit
    which includes the following...

    Front Springs
    Front Box Kit
    Rear Springs (52")
    Rear Box Kit
    Steering Arm
    TCase Drop Kit
    Front Shocks
    Rear Shocks
    5/8" x 3 5/8" x 10" U Bolts"

    This includes about everything I need but is priced considerably more than a similar ProComp kit that I can get in town ($785). I have yet to get a email back from ORD about a TC, kit. The BDS price looks a little steep from my perspective. Do they typically run this high? I think that ORD will give me a price lower than both.... /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    They are typically more, but you do get a lifetime warranty on teh springs, if they start saggin, send em back and get new. Dont know if tc does that or not. You may get him down to $900 if he feels like haggling. But thats probably what its gonna be w/ shocks included. Mine was a right at that price w/ dual shocks all around and dual steerin stabilizers.
  3. I paid $798 with 56" rear springs, and minus the tranfer case drop hardware as my transfer case had the 1" spacers already. This is from a shop in Missouri.
