Pros: Great price. Great ride. easy install. Lifted higher than 2" advertised.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I only needed/wanted 2 - 2.5 inches of lift to replace a previously installed budget boost. After a lot of reading on the forum I came to the conclusion that though OME was highly recommended as the best in the 2" lift category, BDS was a close second for less than half. I netted closer to 2.5 inches of lift and the ride is great. I am very happy with my purchase.

Price: $700.00
Pros: Significant improvement in ride over stock, full military wrap for extra protection and fail-safe, lifetime "no questions asked" warranty
Cons: Full military wrap requires extended shackles, shocks are kind of bouncy
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The ride quality is amazing for the price. It took a lot of research to settle on BDS but it was worth it. Extremely high quality components, backed by a lifetime "no questions asked" warrantee. Bought from a local 4X4 shop so I was able to talk it over with folk who've installed many different brands. After reading quite a bit of info here on this forum and others I ditched the sway bar and track bars, I gave it the CJ treatment; just leaf springs and I'm very happy with the decision. I recommend BDS.

Pros: Decent ride, easy install
Cons: Shocks could've lasted a bit longer.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This was my first lift for a Wrangler so I can't really compare it to anything else besides the factory worn out Rubicon suspension. I will say the ride quality was a night a day difference between the worn out factory suspension. A nice firm ride. As an entry level suspension lift I can't recommend it enough.

Pros: Works great! Good articulation, no vibrations.
Cons: No problem w/the kit. Getting the old stuff off was rough
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My Jeep is old so I didn't want to open a can of worms and go crazy. So I decided to go w/a 2" lift. After speaking w/Jim from OK 4-Wheel Drive, NJ, and doing some research, BDS was the best bang for the buck. Doing the lift did lead to new hubs/wheel bearings, upper and lower ball joints (Synergy) and full brakes. I figured do it once and do it right.

Pros: Got 2.5" front and 3" rear, stiff ride initially, but settled a bit and is much smoother. Easy install, good quality.
Cons: See review
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Unexpected 3" rear required dropping the TC for now, MML or some control arm adjustment will need to be done to eliminate vibrations. Overall very happy, but maybe the lift should be advertised as a 2.5" lift instead of 2".

Comments: 1997 TJ SE, stock.
I purchased 2" coil springs only, 034204 front and 034206 rear.
I paired them with Bilstein 5100 shocks.

I was originally going to go cheap and do BB. I am glad I did the springs. My original coils were sagging more than I thought. The 2" springs raised the front 3.5 inches and the rear 3 inches. The ride is stiffer than before but I am sure it will settle in after a few miles. It is stiffer but rides like I thought a jeep should. It used to ride like a boat. It does also seem to wonder a bit more going down the road but not unsafe. Could be due to higher center of gravity or I need to re-align the wheels. I did not undo cam bolts but the tires still may need to aligned. Being lift may have changed the camber.

It was very easy to install. I was able to remove and replace the springs by only removing the exst shocks and sway bar links. The instructions say to undo several other parts which was not needed if you have help. My help was 270lbs. With my brother putting his weight on the axle and lifting up on the other side with a jack the axle articulated enough to swap the springs.

I am running 31's so I am not sure if I am going to need bump stop extensions. I will have to test it and may need to add them in the future.

Before with stock 215s (27.5).

After with 31s

Pros: shocks came packaged nicely, springs were scratched up, though no big deal
Cons: springs not the same installed height
Recommended? No

Comments: mine came in, installed them and rear springs were 3/4" difference in lift from right to left brand new, the place i ordered from only wants to order one spring, instead of getting the rear set, so now i can install them again to see which one is wrong, was rolled too tall or one too short? and to get them fixed from BDS I have to pay shipping, on brand new springs, I won't be buying from them again.
