the bds pack is aprox 1/2" thicker than the RC spring pack so it will depend on the length of your ubolts, I am using the RC bolts in the front but have a diff setup in the rear

odd packaging, I just rec a second set of BDS springs yesterday and both my orders were sent totaly unwrapped, wonder why yours have that cling wrap? not like anything is going to fall off the springs in transit. When you doing the swap?

Nope. But the springs aren't why the jeeps not back.

it's so pretty and nice



old and busted, all 4 spring packs are supposed to be different heights off the vehicle right?



Part of the reason I don't have my jeep back



another part









My boomerangs are mounted "backwards" by most standards beacuse of my setup, clearance for my steering box was needed with my PSC box being slightly larger, think durango box size. If it's an issue I'll flip em


The other issue we ran into is I have no clutch and my trans is leaking like a siv, that's not from the lift install though that's a new problem thanks to old man winter. shocks should be ordered as soon as the other problems are fixed, but we're getting closer!
