BDS is not Black Diamond. THese are 2 way different springs. Black Diamond = Stiff cheap springs. BDS= Lifetime no questions asked warranty and a nice ride.

We are aware they're different. That was never a question to begin with I'm trying to figure out what springs I ended up getting since they're completely mil wrapped on both ends. Everyone else seems to have partial wrap at one end and complete at the other.

My BDS springs are full military wrap at both ends. Do your springs have any numbers stamped on them anywhere.

Don't think so, just the superlift stickers. Sticker part numbers definitely do not belong on those springs. That part number brings up regular light duty no mil wrap springs.

I would appreciate that, are these stickers you speak of or actual stamping in metal?

That is to bad about the new Black diamond springs. I liked the flat spring seat area, like OME uses.

Fabtech wasn't exactly sponsoring, Superlift did

Also isn't Fabtech close to RC quality wise, as in non-existant. I may be wrong though, just things I've heard. Even the ranger guys say fabtech is for looks only.

If you had sponsoring, then that makes the choices a lot easier. One of my rough country spring main leaf snapped, so i replaced the fronts with fabtech. Not sure how nice the ride, is, bc its a weekend wheeler, but i am satisfied so far.
