My LJ rides on BDS 2" springs and shocks no sag the ride and handling is great so much better than stock Rubicon best warranty and exelent price. You'll love it really.

IslandTJ Having used both OME and BDS, here's my take.

If your Jeep is heavy, you will need to look at springs that are suitable to sustain the Jeep's weight. OME offers heavy duty rated springs which work great. I currently run OME and it's a great lift.

If your Jeep is of average weight, you will be fine with BDS springs. I used to run BDS and it too, is a great lift.

From a cost perspective, BSD is not as expensive compared to OME but BSD does not give options for spring rate.

Huelsmma Im waiting to receive my OME (2934 front 2949 rear) coils for my LJ. Hopefully with me adding new bumpers front & rear and full size 33" on back itll be better for the HD springs.

Rubicondon53 I just installed OME, springs and shocks,, medium in front heavy in rear.. I was a bit skeptical at first, the ride was a bit stiff. My wife suggested loading up our gear, hooking up the trailer and give it a try ... Wow !!! Complete control while cornering, and goodness it soaks up the bumps.. A world of difference from stock with BB.. If you don't have much gear, go with the medium rated springs... My son and my son inlaw will soon be getting OME under their rigs..

TXST8tj Have the 2" BDS coils sitting in the garage waiting to be installed. No comment on ride quality, but I've read enough to be convinced they will suit my needs.

wranglerTX BDS here, with bilsteins, really happy with them.

MTjeepr I like my BDS they ride better than stock, I'm sure that's mostly because of shocks.

Jerry I think you're mistaken. OME sells about 4 different choices of springs for front and rear of a TJ/LJ. You can pick from a variety of combinations from stock rate to stupid stiff. They're only soft and will only sag before you expect them to if you choose the wrong rate for the amount of crap you're carrying around....and that goes for any spring, from any manufacturer.

SupremeTeam Ok I'm gonna add ProComp to the short list of springs to check out. Between these three I should find a good fit.

Lutzkanin I have OME springs and sport OME shocks. results are awesome

I am very satisfied with it.

I am no fan of ProComp but their 2" springs are actually very good quality. If I wanted a 2" lift, I'd probably go with ProComp 2" springs and either OME Nitrocharger, Rancho RS9000xl, or Bilstein 5100 shocks.

Yes you can order just the springs

Nice, I think it will between the BDS and the OME.

SupremeTeam Do these BDS come with just springs because I'm alset with shocks?
05-12-2013 12:41 PM
269jeep Look at the BDS 2 inch coils. Rides like stock on pavement.
