Well, I have acutally had/have both brands on my junk. Of course this was a few years ago, so I would only hope both are still building their springs the same.
Hands down, the RE ED 4.5's had a better ride, but in retrospect, not that much. I feel and have always felt the BDS 5 inch springs flexed better and had a better feel in the rough stuff. BTW, running the same shocks, so equal comparison. The ride of the BDS springs was very close to that of the RE's, but I would give the edge to RE. But as an overall general assessment, I prefer the BDS's.
'92 YJ, 4.0, 5sp, 8.8 w/ 4.56's locked F&R, Teralow 4-1, HD SYE, BDS 5" SUA lifted on 35 MTR's. PSE front trail cage kit, 1ton TRE flip, 1"shackles, 1"BL, 1" MM. <><
