I have a BDS with Bilstiens 5100's, I like it. It's s tad stiff but not rough. I went from factory springs with 200k.

That's an understatement for Bilsteins. I'd take mrblaine's opinion over anyone else's on this forum.

Folks tend to brag about how nicely they eat up the larger events while failing to mention accurately in the same breath they are real handy at determining if a quarter is heads or tails simply by passing a tire over it.

Small event harshness is quite annoying to me.

I used to have a rough country lift with their so called upgraded shocks. The shocks felt like riding a track style go-cart on highway rumble strips.
