Go online to the site and look through their catalog and order from the section where you can order by part number. Then go and have it shipped to your local dealer. DO NOT go to your dealer and have them order it for you! You WILL be charged tax and shipping if the order is under $1000 (for the dealer).

Enjoy your springs!

BDS has an online 10% discount until the 25th. Here is a link to that thread. Look for post 72 for the new code.

I bought BDS springs from my local distributor. No shipping but I did have to pay the tax.

Bob is a super great guy and if you don't have a local dealer/distributor 100% he'll take care of you.

thanks for all of the input. I do have a local dealer Tillman's truck center, but i was just going to buy them off of bds website and they can get all 4 springs to me for 470 and that includes the bushings. Do u think bob can beat that price. and what do you think of skyjacker hydro 7000s because those are the shocks im thinking about buying. i was going to get a pittman arm of a zj. I dont have a sway bar right now so with the extra lift should i put it back on and get disconnects. i already have ss +4 lines from crown because i broke one and i figured i was going to get a lift so i bought those. i also already had 1 in lift shackles too. i also am going to take of the track bars. i got new u bolts and the axle shims and a t case drop. I will most likely get the slip yoke cv combo later down the road,

Call bob and find out. He'll give ya a price right away. I don't remember what shocks I got but there BDS brand. I haven't put my stabilizer back on after the lift and it seems to drive fine. I went with a tie rod end flip instead of pitman arm. I may eventually put the stab back on if I find a good way to mount it. I didn't put my sway bar back on and removed track bars as well. The springs will come with 4 or 6 degree shims. The front springs r heavier duty and u can just buy 4 front ones which most people seem to recommend, myself included. I didn't need a SYE/CV shaft with my 2.5 inch RC lift but with the 3.5 BDS lift and .5 inch shackles I did. I'd assume u will as well. Even with a TCD I was leaking fluid out of TC output and had a lot of play in the driveshaft (input shaft was barely in TC). PM me if you need bobs number, I'm guessing he'll beat most prices.

I installed a pair in June with my OME 2.5" lift and .75" boomerang shackles and I have no complaints about them. Get them from the Skyjacker website though, under the pulldown that says scratch and dent. Nothing at all wrong with them and they were only $25 each. You can get the 8000s series for $29 each from there also.

I agree, just give him a call and see (405) 799-8977. He doesn't keep a stock of them so they'll likely just be drop shipped from BDS. I got all four of my 2" BDS springs for under $400 to the door, so you may already be getting a good price. But, I'm cheap so I'd still call.
