What about Teraflex springs?

Gixxer86g Lot's of stuff to consider. I'll look into the BDS springs.

As far as the BB is concerned, I'll probably replace the rear spacers next. Step by step.

The winch and mounting plate will add about 130lbs to my front end. When I sit on my bumper, it sags .5 inches. I'm 200lbs.

So, if I remove the front 2in spacers, and add 3in springs, I should level out when the winch is installed. I hope. Any suggestions? I've read some threads about Rusty's 3in springs. Opinions?
If you get rid of your oem springs for 3" longer springs you might find it actually raises you higher than what you're looking for if your stock springs have sagged some over the years.

GoldenSahara00 Why not just put an actual lift on it and ditch the BB all together? And your front end will sag more over time. I through my winch on and sighed with relief that it only dropped a quarter of an inch. A year later it's more like 3/4".
