Did you measure it at 22" or did your math get you there?

I'll bet you had 1" lift springs and didn't realize it.

Anyhow, call BDS in the morning they will make it right.

My math says you're an inch off. How tall is your body lift?

If you had a "before" side view pic, we could probably guess at it.

OP bought used springs & doesn't know what it was he replaced. What exactly is calling BDS going to do? Even if in the unlikely event that those springs are defective they are going to (politely)tell him to f#%$ off.

2 inch body. I know what I measured as I measured and put tape on window with number on it. Bds won't do anything since I bought used. Worried wreck shocks and 35s I ordered won't fit

OP was able to get the BDS part number off his springs. BDS has a no questions asked lifetime warranty on all their parts.

BDS has a no questions asked warranty. They don't ask for a receipt. Call them.

My rig with 35's measures 25" at the rocker. I'm sure you have enough lift and have the 3.5" lift you bought. But if not call BDS they will make it right.

In fact when you put on the 35's you will have more lift than I do.

Let's get some better measurements to remove as many variables as we can. What is the distance between the top of the axle tube and the bottom of the frame? I'll run home and measure mine with BDS 3.5" springs and 5/8" shackles.

I'm at 10 1/8" from top of axle tube to frame.
