Well a BB is not really very technical so they actual spacer brand is not really important unless it was made from cheese somewhere in China. This kit comes with new, longer shocks and bumpstop extensions so as far as a BB goes it is good. What shocks did you go for?

BDS doesn't own them but rather they are both owned by the same parent company.

Zone is the sister company of BDS. Both make great lifts, but I chose BDS because they have a NO FINE PRINT NO QUESTIONS ASK WARRANTY. A distributor down the road from me sell BDS for many years and he said only 1 BDS spring came back defective, and it was a Toyota P/U that got into a car accident and it somehow broke the coil spring and BDS just sent him a new spring. I had Rough Country 3.25 lift but its very rough especially going over train tracks and their shocks leak, Springs sag for sure, some reason the 2.5 rears with 3/4 spacer never really sagged but they are rated 115 lbs spring rate which BDS is 200lbs rears and OME is 216lbs. I have an LJ so its a little more heavy and plus hardtop I feel BDS, AEV, and OME are the best but AEV is discontinuing their TJ line of suspension coil springs, So down the road if I have a problem with the coil spring they won't be able to replace it because it was discontinued, OME is great also but they are very expensive, and BDS is a reasonable price and best bang for the buck!
