4" RC to 5" BDS Suspension, Will need new shocks???

I'm thinking to get 5" BDS leaf springs but I'm concern about my shocks, actually running 4.5" Rubicon Express shocks. Did someone have any experience or did something similar? Any comments will be appreciated.

you should be all right the BDS 5in springs don't flex very well so i wouldn't worry about your shocks. I can't wait to change mine to a lower more flexible leaf pack

Really? I read otherwise on the other Forum, Hummm which brand do you think are good leafs? Many were talking about Rubicon Express Extreme Duty but is way too pricey for me at the moment. My budget right now is about $500.00 for leaf springs plus shipping obviously.

I've been looking at fabtech 3.5 springs a few friends run them and seem to be working well. there is also the rancho 44044 springs front wagoneer springs that can be used to stretch out you wheel base a little more

Well I'm not looking into any mod's at the moment that's why I'm not using the two SOA axles I got. Will keep my rig SUA. I was checking into Quadratec and they sell the RE ED 4.5" for $164.99 ea. that could be an option.
