Rough country to BDS question.

My plan is to switch out my RC springs for some BDS ones. I'm running a 95 with 1in BL flat fenders and 33s currently. The plan is to run 35s eventually with this rig.

I've got the 4in RC kit currently, my question is what size BDS springs should I be bumping up to to keep the same stance or gain performance? Thanks!

Because that's a bit more fab work then I'm willing to take on currently. I'd rather just upgrade the system I have to a more reliable more comfortable version and go from there.

plus the BDS will still out preform my RC.

I run a 3.5 BDS with .5 booms and 1 in body lift on 33s. With flat fenders I could run 35s easy.

this is also my second set of RC springs this year. I'd rather spend the money again and get something that will last.
