Beachcruiser For that use & running 33s (which will need a regear of your axles) the 'best' is probably BDS....no hassle lifetime warranty.

For smaller tires, many folks praise the Old Man Emu stuff. Very nice ride & tough, too.

What is that? is it where i get rid of the leaf springs for coils springs or?

Realistically figure out exactly how you want to use your rig & it will point you in the right direction.

What's best on a light daily driver w/ weekend trail trips is much different from a dedicated offroad rig w/ a bunch of heavy gear & harsh useage.

What are your goals, as far as the items in the first sentence are concerned?
It is My daily driver, and will most likely stay that way, I plan on doing more trailing and rock climbing than mudding, and like my friend has a rough counrty 2.5 inch suspension lift, and hes had it on for about 3 months and its starting to sag in the front
