I have the 3.5" springs and couldn't be happier!

My 5" springs are amazing. I definitely recommend BDS.

They ride a lot better than the bastard-pack 2" springs and the 4" Rustys Offroad springs I had. And TONS better than my friends 2.5" Rough Country. Flexes great, too.

Dang! I wish I gave them a try instead of the 3.5" springs. I wouldn't have needed a body lift to be happy with my 35's.

They may have been too tall for what you wanted. I actually got about 6-7" of lift from them. They may settle some, but they haven't in the 4-5 months that I've had them.
