They do, where did you see that? I have them on my DD. Ah, do a search, there are nothing but good for all I have ever read. Many posts on BDS.

Jwolfer Take a look at some better (more expensive) shocks. OME aren't that much more expensive for a much better ride. Save up and buy once rather that getting it sooner and having to replace it in a couple of years.

nick_marcil I have the BDS shocks & springs. Yes, it is a much stiffer ride, but in a good way. All of the pot-holes don't make my whole rig shake, it just takes the bump. Also, on turns it doesn't sway to one side, it stays center so it handles much better.

muddawgx I have talked to people and read a lot of places that the BDS shock are a lot stiffer of a ride. My rig is a daily driver and I never get to do much wheeling. I know that the Skyjackers were a decent ride fo my situation. That's really all I can say. I am open to suggestions though. Nothing is scribbed in stone. The only way I was plannin on doin a full lift was if I found someone upgrading and selling their 2-2.5" lift. A lot depends on what my tax return looks llike.

Neil F. BDS springs are not going to sag. Why would you not get the BDS shocks? They are better tan the skyjacker.

Anyone have this lift combo? Saggy springs?

Anyone out there tried a combo of BDS springs and Skyjacker Shocks? thinking of going 2-2.5" Also has anyone noticed alot of sag/settling with either Rugged Ridge or BDS springs?

Had Skyjacker shocks on the 03 TJ and liked them, so I atleast know whatever I get, will add the Skyjackers. I just dont want to go with a bb this time. I would like to try a spring lift. I figure I can piece a lift together slowly like that and would be to my budget area. I just cant do a whole lift all at once.($)
