Rusty's 2" HD or BDS 2" springs

I was pretty much set on the BDS springs, but I've noticed that on Extreme 4X4 (on the Velocity channel) they use alot of Rusty's Offroad products. So I checked their website and they do have a set of HD 2 inch springs for the same price as the BDS 2 inch springs. Anyone actually know, having had experience with either of these two? Thanks,

Rustys blows. Go BDS out of those two.

I also run 2" bds lift. Recommended. I also believe bds uses as much US made material as they can get their hands on.

I would look into the spring rates of the springs and decide which fits your needs. Rusty's, despite their horrible reputation, actually puts out some decent coil springs. I ran their HD springs in the past with winch, winch carrier, skids, etc and it never sagged one bit and rode very nice.

You could also look into Old Man Emu 2" springs. They provide a few different spring rates to choose from. There's more into choosing springs than just the brand name.

@ IslandTJ, I remebered that you had BDS springs but for some reason I thought you had a 3" lift, guess it was the 2" spring with 1" body lift.

@Muddeprived, I have been checking around, reading reveiws, and even contacted OME, they couldn't tell me if their lift would give 2" of actual lift or not. I don't want less than 2", but I don't want 3" either. 2" to 2.5" is enough for me, I may put a body lift too.

@GreenBay, thanks your info too.

I think he's one of the guys I contacted. I'm really thinking of just going with the BDS springs, everything I've read, and the people that have them are happy with them, sells it for me.

I bought the BDS springs because of the positive reviews and comments, as well as the price. I applied the money I saved on some JKS quicker disconnects and adjustable rear swaybar links.
