Can I see some pics of your LJ with 3" front springs and 2" rear springs.

Rolf I run a set of 2" BDS coils upfront. I have a heavy bumper and winch so I bought a set meant for the slightly heavier XJ. They work perfectly and the spring rate compensates perfectly for the extra weight upfront.

Let me see some pics of your Jeep with the 2" lift!

I didn't know, and the BDS website suggested those since I don't think I have them. But the guy I bought the kit off of, threw the CAM bolts in as part of the package I bought.
I've seen them used in the rear to adjust pinion angle. Not sure with BDS, as I did not get them with my 2" BDS suspension.

Neil F. I had the same question when I bought my lift and all of the posts I have read state the cams are not necessary.

Arch Stanton I was thinking about getting cam bolts. I wonder why Jeep discontinued installing these from the factory. A couple of alignment shops have suggested them. I have a BB with OME shocks and am looking for 2" springs.

Given you don't mess with anything else, you can go 3-3.5 with no major issues. That said...every lj is different and you always chance running into vibes with any mods. The odds are much lower on the lj though.
Mines about 3 in the front and 2 in the back plus body lift. I run a sye only because I have a tt.

Rick8240 I'm installing a 3" bds on my jk today, from what I heard this is a very sound lift, and can't beat the warranty,

Green Bay TJ Just got one installed at the jeep dealer. Got 2-1/2" in the back, 2-1/4" in the front on my TJ. Have not gotten back from the shop yet - when they test drove, found driveline vibration, they are changing out 3 driveshaft U-joints. Should be able to pick up tomorrow if no more problems.

IslandTJ I have the BDS 2" suspension lift and am quite happy with it's performance both on and off the road. One thing to consider is that your LJ weighs more than a typical TJ. Some suspension companies account for weight differences and will offer different spring rates, OME comes to mind. I don't think BDS offers a HD spring line but I might be wrong. In any case, I would contact BDS and see if they make a spring specific to the LJ.

BDS 2" Springs

Anyone running the 2" spring kit from BDS? If so, how do you like it and was it a true 2" of lift? Also wouldn't mind seeing some pics. Finally think I have this kit picked for my LJ instead of spacers. Thx.
