Anyone have this lift combo? Saggy springs?

Anyone out there tried a combo of BDS springs and Skyjacker Shocks? thinking of going 2-2.5" Also has anyone noticed alot of sag/settling with either Rugged Ridge or BDS springs?

Had Skyjacker shocks on the 03 TJ and liked them, so I atleast know whatever I get, will add the Skyjackers. I just dont want to go with a bb this time. I would like to try a spring lift. I figure I can piece a lift together slowly like that and would be to my budget area. I just cant do a whole lift all at once.($)

BDS springs are not going to sag. Why would you not get the BDS shocks? They are better tan the skyjacker.

I have talked to people and read a lot of places that the BDS shock are a lot stiffer of a ride. My rig is a daily driver and I never get to do much wheeling. I know that the Skyjackers were a decent ride fo my situation. That's really all I can say. I am open to suggestions though. Nothing is scribbed in stone. The only way I was plannin on doin a full lift was if I found someone upgrading and selling their 2-2.5" lift. A lot depends on what my tax return looks llike.

I have the BDS shocks & springs. Yes, it is a much stiffer ride, but in a good way. All of the pot-holes don't make my whole rig shake, it just takes the bump. Also, on turns it doesn't sway to one side, it stays center so it handles much better.

Take a look at some better (more expensive) shocks. OME aren't that much more expensive for a much better ride. Save up and buy once rather that getting it sooner and having to replace it in a couple of years.
