Here's the 2". Again, I have no personal experience with their products but hear good things.

BDS Suspension is not the same as Black Diamond Suspension but people on the forum get it confused sometimes.
Thanks for the advice. I actually got them confused too lol.

wheres a good place to look for bds suspensions. Tom put http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma...4&yr=1987-1995. Is that the best price you think I could get. And do you think its really that much better considering its about 200 bucks more than the black diamond?

There might be a forum vendor that would give you a deal, that's where I would look first. I don't know who sells BDS though.

I think I'm going to go with bds 2" lift. Just found out there was a 10% off discount that ended on the 31 Fantastic

Mine was installed in 2008 and is still fine. 4" kit with 1" RC boomerang shackles. Before the longer shackles, it rode like garbage.

You're only a few days late, unless it was a manufacturer's rebate or something the seller should be able to work with you.

Check the BDS website for a dealer near you. You save the shipping. I paid to have them shipped to my job. If you ever have a problem with a spring, for ANY reason you get a new one from them for free. They're awesome springs and worth every penny. Might rode stiff for the first few months but now ride nice, almost coil like with the hardtop on.

This is the kind of stuff I've been hearing about BDS.

The bds lift says it recommends extended shackles. should I get these directly from bds you think? They are kinda pricey. Any advice on if these are necessary and if some good inexpensive ones to get. Thanks

Made a decision To go with the bds 2" lift. How about the shackles though? Does anyone have any advice on these???

Also considering buyin a totally stainless Hardware set. Is this a worthy investment you think? I think it would be nice since they are all prepackaged and labeled. And almost every bolt on my car is rusted to sh*t.

Here's a link http://www.quadratec.com/products/13019_208.htm

Thanks

I don't have experience to comment on stainless hardware. I got my shackles from Rough Country as well, but only because they went on sale. I got the complete set of 4 for something like $60 shipped, it was one of their christmas deals a couple years ago. No problems yet and I don't expect any.
