I know that the R.E. 4 1/2" reaches the last 1/2" with the shackles.
Don't know about the BDS springs your running.
My point was that a 6" spring only lift with a stock length spring will
ride like crap and not flex very well.

I'm running 5" BDS springs plus the shackles. They will eventually flatten with flex as well.
