Here is a huge list of lift reviews. I believe there are some zone and BDS In there:

But yes you are correct, BDS owns zone and they do make quality lifts

I have the 4" Zone lift and have no complaints about it whatsoever. I had it installed last September on a 2013 JKU. I don't use my Jeep for wheeling, it's a daily driver/mall crawler and has only see the likes of fire roads and snow for wheeling.

Zone 4" Lift... Any good? - JKowners.com : Jeep Wrangler JK Forum

On my jeep the dealer changed my front driveshaft on the ground. They said with my lift that just sitting on the ground was basically the limit of the ds. I went home with it and took the ds off right away. 4" is really too much for stock shft.

The links above have others stating the same.

If you get a 4" lift the front drive shaft is something you do need to keep an eye on. Every couple of weeks I crawl under mine and take a look to be sure the seal on the front shaft is not spraying grease all over the bottom of my Jeep. When and if that happens, I will invest the $700 in new front and rear shafts.

JK 4 door 4" lift - JeepForum.com

More info for you. In this thread there is a pic of the front ds boot torn.

Oh and death wobble. You need to increase the caster angle, yeah the zone comes with cam bolts but it is likely not enough. One of the reasons kits Coe with adjustable control arms.
